We had been sharing a little studio on the first floor when this place opened up. One glance inside and we were sold.
We got pretty lucky, with an exposed brick wall that stretches through the living room through double-doors to our office/studio space, classic trim and molding, great sunlight all day through some big old windows.
We also received an ugly, free, used-to-be-white couch from the last tenants...which we will let stay for a while.The nice thing about "round one" was that we only had to move our stuff upstairs. "Round two" involves getting all of my art-making supplies and books out of storage. Storage, in this case, meaning a (somewhat expensive) bedroom I rent that I haven't visited since November.
