So it’s been a while since my last post…

I didn’t mean it to be!
Things kept happening, I kept being sick (think I’m finally better) and just lots of crap.

So, me making it to the Maker Fair isn’t happening. In trade, my other half helped chip in for a studio!
Yes, a real studio just for me!

Originally, we were looking around, but not sure what to get, then, finally figured out what I wanted, and what would fit. Then it was a matter of pricing. Lowe’s and another local place wanted decent credit, and well, my credit, though in repair, and getting better, is not good enough for a building. So, we went another route.
There’s a local place here in Athens, TN, the Athens Barn Center. They rent to own, with no credit check! So, after looking around their lot a few times, I knew what I wanted, but they didn’t have one the size I wanted. No fear! They also build custom! Hell yah!
So, I had a custom Side Lofted Barn built, with a single door and two windows. It would have been here a week ago if not more sooner, but the weather has disagreed with me.
I’ve been totally impatient, waiting, but it finally got here today! I got a slight sunburn helping direct the driver in with it. Due to trees, it wasn’t put in the spot I wanted, but close enough!

This weekend, we’ll be going to Home Depot (Lowe’s turned me down) to get insulation, and the wiring needed to wire it up for electricity! (yay!)
Here’s some photos of what it looks like, and I’ll be posting more as it gets finished!
