Woo hoo!

Hi everyone--

We did it!  With your help, we not only hit our Kickstarter target, but we exceeded it by over 55%!  Over 3,300 people have backed us, and over 20,000 people have "liked" our campaign on Facebook.  Perhaps even more exciting is the realization that this may be one of the biggest "crowd funding" campaigns ever focused on urban redevelopment, reuse, and innovative design.  Clearly we're on to something huge here.

Now for the fun part: rewards!  We'll be in touch in the next few days on next steps-- we'll need some more info from you and we'll need to share details on our special events.  Stay tuned in the next few days.

But for now, thank you again!  This is just the beginning of our ongoing effort, but let's all take a few minutes to look back at what we've accomplished so far, and grin, and get excited for the future. 

With all our thanks,
Dan and James
