Architecturally as a general rule of thumb we tend to focus on highest areas of risk, so certainly anything that's at the exterior of the building that can get water, water leaking in, or air leaking in, things that can cause problems, especially in Minnesota, we typically work a lot on the exterior of the buildings to get really thermally insulated and water tight and snow tight, weather tight buildings. We generally tend to focus a lot of our attention on that, and then the next primary focus would be areas of highest value to the project, so kind of as much as we can detail in relation to the primary goals of the projects, whether it's putting in a new door or putting in new finishes, or new flooring whatever is really the most valuable to the owner, or client and ultimately the users, to get that right, is where we tend to try and focus our attention.
