So one quick example of weather is maybe you make a deal, it's gonna be a six month construction, and we're ready to roll forward, and it's March and everything's perfect, and we're gonna go and then there's some issue that comes up, maybe it's a financial issue, maybe it's a code-related issue with an inspector who wants something to get fixed first, and the project gets delayed a number of months, and so now, instead of starting in March now we're starting in say November, or December, well the issues of the weather that were gonna be happening over the spring and summer for that six month project duration, might be very different than the ones that are gonna be happening over the six months starting in November, December and January et cetera, that it would be totally reasonable, in that moment, for the general contractor to say look, the weather is different now, my bid, my contract with you, was if we were starting in March, this is now a different project, the weather will have impact on our process and we can't just assume that we could just take that exact same bid and just shift it down six months later because the weather is now different and therefore you might do all sorts of different changes into the concrete mix or into any number of different aspects of the design process. Another reason that changes happen, which we've talked about a little bit already, is the idea that just clients change their mind, especially once a contractor has started to actually build something out, you actually see it very differently when you actually see real walls and real spatial relationships. It's very abstract for most people to look at a sheet of paper or look on a computer screen and truly understand what the relationships are going to be like, but once they can actually sort of stand in the space, there may be changes that just come up because they realize there are differences in the way that they want to move forward.
