I'm more than a bit concerned about that, Shail. And I really can't tell much about what you've got from the photos.

I can't tell what the blue is around the edge. Looks like blue masking tape,...

I got no eye-dee what might be the difference between your 36-dollar OSB and your 48-dollar OSB, Matt. Either one is over priced to my thinking, but youins Yankees like to spend more dollars for...
