sorry but I'm using my phone.  Note the two squares touching. 

I like this puzzle so much I'm making it with my schools 3D printer.  Peices will have corners that exclude 4 at a corner and have ridges that force H or V. 

I have an excuse. I'm in bed with the flu.   My solution is the same as Charlie's.   It's just a reflection.
