General notes and comments: Productive meeting with Ikea (SLC). We worked on changes to the plans provided by Ikea in Sweden to improve function over form. The plan is to do the upgrades in three stages: lower deck and GreenHab first to be completed during the October work party. A new kitchen and science lab will be installed later in the season.

Summary of ScienceDome: Dual split unit was installed in the interior but need the pad for the outside unit which did not get ordered. Once that is herewe will contact an Hvac company to add the refrigerant and then the Science Dome will have both ac and heat. This was installed mainly so we can keep the power system cool in the summer as the dome is pretty well insulated.

Summary of health and safety issues: continues to be unseasonably warm. I either have a cold or allergies.
