I cant figure out why it wont find webClient?

Hi

The course has been confusing at this part especially, why wont it find webClient? I have crosschecked with Carling's code and its almost exactly the same exept for the using statement.

Program.cs
using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Net;

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(GetTreehouseHome());
        }

        public static string GetTreehouseHome()
        {
            string treehouse = "";
            // Put code here
            using (var webClient = new WebClient());
            byte[] treehouseBytes = webClient.DownloadData("https://www.teamtreehouse.com");
            return treehouse;
        }
    }
}

Instead of terminating the using statement with a semicolon, use a pair of braces ({}) around the next line to include it in the body of the using (and give it access to webClient).
