work is progressng on the office space in back of building. although the process of chipping off plaster is slow, exposing the original brick wall underneath is turning out just like we were hoping for. the evidence of a fire in years past is still evident on the cargo door that leads to storage area. it will remain intact in an effort to keep the building as original as possible. i can barely wait to have a real office again. after packing up all our files into tubs when leaving IN and working off my kitchen counter for the last 6 months, it's more than likely the barn red paint that's going on the floor won't be dry before i'm dragging my desk and file cabinets in!
