Tadaa ! Mystic-Creatures' NEW studio is finally operational.
Whew, it was a lot of work, but now we have a 100% costume dedicated workshop. With bonus points for: Windows you can open, storage space, well enough working heating, photoshoot space. The only thing left to do is install a dozen full spectrum daylight neon tubes.
With the very kind help of Vauvi, Buewolf and Stitch Mimulus, all my furniture and workshop stuff has been moved into the new studio. Where the heck does all this stuff come from ? Cleaning this up takes several days for sure.
It happened. We have to leave the old studio rooms now.
Good: We got to rent other rooms in the same building, so moving will be fairly easy. Bad: The landlord was quit unflexible with the rent. It's now higher than in the other rooms, while being smaller at the same time. And again some rooms have no windows.
I got the keys yesterday. Inspection result: Water is functional, but no electricity yet, and the walls are painted PINK ! So first thing today: Buy white paint.
Since unfortunately several issues keep delaying my costume work, it is about time I update the queue plan. (Such things like part time out-sourced company work, loosing the workshop and needing to relocate, building new infrastructure,..)
If there will be no other unexpected troubles, my costume schedule should look like this:
Again, I am terribly sorry for the delays. Should you find that your commission is being delayed for too long now, and that you would rather not wait that long, I can understand that and you can opt out any time.
Since the landlord of my studio had to close and wall up my windows, due to very strange building regulations and contracts, my workshop now is without windows and no real ventilation. We have now sent due notice for the end of this year.
If we are lucky, we can rent other rooms in the same building for a fair price. That would be the least inconvenient thing. Still, all this delays my work a bit.
