...along with my sanity.
It's done, kids, it's DONE. And a full month earlier than expected When does that happen with renovation projects? There's nothing left to do but assemble fixtures, bring in the yarn and arrange things just so.
Joe's not necessarily happy that the restoration is complete, because that means that Strebig Construction's fabulous job is over, and his begins. Here he is unloading the 14' box truck of nearly three tons of furniture and fixtures for the store. He's walking through what I call the "warehouse" of the building. Not only does my building have the showroom that you've seen all along, it also has a large rear space with a second floor, a garage door (you know, for all the yarn the UPS guy will haul in daily.... a girl can dream) and plenty of room for things I can't even imagine right now.
As the lucky husband of a yarn store owner, he knows his summer off from teaching will be busy with putting together three dozen shelving units, dozens of slatgrid walls, and affixing samples to the 14' walls, all while trying to tell me to leave him alone and let him do it his way. Which is fine, because I'll still be running the online store as usual and keeping track of a nearly-four year boy whose middle name of Danger certainly has started to fit his personality type in the past month.
It's going to be an awesome summer!
