Saturday Moving at 10:00

Hello Everyone,
If I don't get you called or emailed please do not be offended things are crazy busy.
We are planning the move on Saturday, March 31st at 10:00 am. We are meeting at the barn to load up and then head out to the new studio on 12th and Western to off load. It should be a great day. If you can make it out to help that would be great and many thanks. If not, no worries. Feel free to drop by anytime to see how things are progressing.
I was in seattle all week. It was great. I have a few pictures up at the Mr. Boatman's Room blog.

Studio Layout

I got a decent program with a free trial to layout the studio. Pretty neat stuff.
Keep it Centered.


I got a good photo up at Mr. Boatman's Room of Ray doing some mudding on the wall. Looking good. Here is a heads up. If you go to Lowe's and are looking for mudding supplies and head to the paint section you are in the wrong area. Go to the drywall place. They have tape and mud in the painting area but it is a whole way lot more expensive. You would figure the mud would be there. All the other supplies needed for good mudding are in the paint area except the cheap mud. It is a trick. Sneak thieves are they.

I started painting one of the walls yesterday. The old paint on there is horrible. I am going to have to mud a bit to get the wall ready for good paint. So tonight I plan on mudding after yoga so the wall will be ready for fresh paint.
Good progress is being made.
Keep it Centered.

New Logo?

Just playing around with this. What do you think?

Clean up

It is pretty overwhelming. There is a bunch of little stuff. Just things everywhere. Trying to get organized and move around and do and go. It is difficult to know that to do next. Not having a specific place for things in the new location makes it tricky too. There is the want to move things somewhere but no where to move them too yet.

I am looking for someone who can unhook all the electrical wires in the barn. We need all the lights and plugs and switches taken down and packed away. It could be a big job and needs to be done well. I just do not have that kind of time. So if you know anyone looking for something to do for a couple of days it would be work. It is not a trash job either as it needs to be done carefully and thoughtfully.

If you have not checked out the calendar I think it will be a good way to keep up with things. It does require a signup for a free Google Account. I have the calendar set on my personalize homepage via google. Pretty neat setup.

I am working this afternoon in the barn and Tuesday too. I am planning on meeting Ray and Roy at the 1220 (or 1218 not sure which via the post office or the city) studio on Wednesday after yoga around 7:00.

Wondering about a new logo. Wondering what the Bewley's are thinking for a name of the building.

It is raining. I went by 12th and Western and there are a couple or three leaks in the ceiling. Nothing bad. Rick said he would be patching the roof too.
Getting things at the barn cleaned up and ready to move. clearning shelves and throwing away. Looks more and more bigger all the time. Thinking now I could really use a truck with a lift gate all the time. It would be worth it for the move.
Coming along nevertheless.

Come to the Blue Moon on the Paseo this weekend. The Amber Wind Society is playing on Friday at 9:00. Great music. Good friends. It is well worth the trip.

I am trying to create a Google Calendar with studio events. I hope to have blow times and schedules posted to this calendar and published online too. It could be an easy way to keep track of goings on at the studio.
Let me know what you think.
We are going over to 1218 N. Western today around 5:30 to begin laying out the floor plan. I have paper and tape and hope to make footprint templates of all the equipment. We can move these around as necessary to get a setup in mind.

You get now get a membership to Blue Sage Studios. Members will be entitled to blow time at a discount and a set schedule in the studio.
More details to follow soon.
Keep it centered.


I have posted up a budget. Take a look if you can. Let me know what you think and if any changes need to be made. I am trying to think of costs to create a budget for the new studio.
Coming along...
