Set construction began yesterday and is already behind schedule. I built a prototype foam ice pillar and I am feeling sketchy about the adhesive. It didn't seem to be holding very well so I decided to let it cure overnight before building any more. I may end up having to resort to duct tape as a primary structural component. Carpentry should begin tomorrow. The event coordinator at the venue assured me that she would allow me to work after hours if necessary, which was of great reassurance.
If you have any free time over the next week, grab your tape measure and come on over.
