Now I can walk through all of the rooms and get a sense of how much space each room will have. Here is the view from the back entry, looking towards the break room. Eventually, the assistant station will block this view a bit.

The crew also started building the fire wall around the surgery suite. The fire wall will slow down a fire in case of an emergency. It extends up, beyond the ceiling, all the way to the roof.

Tomorrow, the interior designer and I are meeting with the general contractor and millworker to discuss all the cabinetry for the space. Until then....
