Prior to us moving in it was warehousing space. Jeremy quickly started pulling up the masonite that was covering the wood floors, painted part of the walls, sanded and finished a portion of the floor and built some partition walls. We're dividing the space up into several areas. It will contain our photo/lighting studio, the wood shop, electronics shop, paint/spray stalls, music/practice space, a mini-ramp (for skateboarding), screen printing studio, Parker's studio (yes, it's so huge she gets a studio), storage, and our pseudo living room (so we can be in there all the time!). I've never had this much space that I had free reign over. I'll continue to document how the space evolves. It's an exciting project. We're thinking of it as a staging ground for wherever we end up next. We'll spread out for a year (or so) while we build all of our studio furniture with the mindset that we will ultimately have a significantly smaller space that will house us, our studios and the rest of our lives.
Here's a few photos. You can find more on my flickr page. woo!

That's all for now. We're super excited. I want to have a huge party once everything is set up.
