Moving in

The roof is up on my new studio and I am moving in today! It is a daunting task, and I am sitting here on my third cup of coffee gearing up for a long day. Yesterday was a long day and probably the most work my guys have done in one stretch. They were pretty wiped out at the end of the day, but had plans for Friday night, which I know included lots of alcohol consumption. They work hard but they play even harder. Ahhhh youth, I remember those days......
Has it only been a week since these two walked into my life? I feel like they have been here a year. The one on the left, Jake, has plans to join the Navy and become a Navy seal. He's a really smart guy so I could see that happening. The one on the right, Ryan, is a crazy Irishman, with no plans that I can tell, he just likes having a good time. Super smart as well, and could have a very bright future in construction if he wanted one. I have had a blast working with them and getting to know them. A relationship with them is not for the faint of heart though. They are pretty rowdy boys. I commented yesterday that I wanted my studio to have a lot of character and Ryan said it should since it was built by a couple of characters! Boy, that's for sure!!!
There are still a few things on the outside to finish up, don't know when I will see these two, but I have two days of shelf building and unpacking and sorting to do on the inside, so I'll check in with all of you on Monday hopefully with a tour.

Are you putting in any insulation? Easier to do now than later. Congrats on your new space.

Hi Ron: no insulation, no money left... I figure a 12X12 will be ok for a space heater, and if not I will just find something to do inside in the really cold months. I may do the insulation later when I have the $$
Hey girls: it hasn't seemed that fast to me, more like a decade:)

that was fast and when you can add insulation it will make it so much better- even if you just add one blue board at a time.
