to make this statement over

and over again.

sinks for this job alone!

The house is for

their daughter, okay.

It's her wedding present.

I mean it's on a mountain

top in the desert!

You're going to build a

house from the ground up,

I want you to be creative okay!

And, and, and you're talking to the

So you had this

aspect of the project.
