It was literally raining inside this quaint 1800’s downtown Stafford Springs storefront, So many people thought we were absolutely INSANE to buy this building! But we did anyway. To us, all we saw was our vision, our dream studio, alive and vibrant in our minds eye. So, we’d like to share with you a story. We have to prepare you though….for it’s a dirty one.
Here goes….Once upon a time, we looked at a seemingly imsurmountable project right in the eye, and stated “I have a dream!!” Okay, maybe it wasn’t quite a historic event, but to us buying and completely renovating this historic building from (almost) the ground up, was a dream come true…..and a tremendous amount of blood, sweat and tears.
And, did I mention, that we have some pretty AMAZING friends that will work for pizza and beer? Even though it was almost 100˚out when we gutted the whole kit and kaboodle….ugh! Just look at how dirty our crew got! I’m pretty sure none of us were wearing masks during this intial phase….look at our sooty noses! But this was just the tip of the iceberg….
Oh, by the way, that’s Paul all the way on the left wearing the UConn t-shirt (way to show team spirit!!)
And I’m the dork wearing the Yankee’s hat going “ta-da!!!”
I’m not a Yankees fan anymore BTW…major league sports just ain’t my cup of tea anymore.
But getting my hands dirty is (my cup of tea, that is ; )
From here, Paul will take on the narration: warning- he is a man of few words- written words that is. Take it away Paulie!
“Then I decided to tackle almost ALL of the renovation myself!”
Did I mention that Paul is really superman in disguise? A soot-covered, sweat-soaked disguise?
About 2.5 years later here is where we are
Yup….believe your eyes!!!
Told you he was a man of few words…..stay tuned for more images of our studio space!!!!
XOXO, Krystal & Paul
