Yasha steadies the ladder while Jeff Masty hands off the
Hilte to Ivan. Ivan is drilling a hole for conduit that will run through housing into the

A fiber optic line must be used to connect the two halves of the site in order to maintain
a quality connection. This line will run from the S.O.D. Unit to the wine cellar
in Crafts III. Ron Chandler used a rented backhoe to start the trench in which conduit will be laid.
