I just learned that these are some of the very first Avantone MixCubes ever produced. Probably one of the first 100 pairs to exist in the wild.
The proof? A 3-pin power supply which was never commercially available and no longer seems to exist … not even at the AvantonePro offices down the road in Tallman, NY.
I’m sure they’d be very useful if only we could only plug them in…
It will take some time to work out the ergonomics, lighting, storage, and cable runs (more detailed posts on the way), but for now, I have an absolutely beautiful sounding place to work!
Yeah, the empty house has a certain charm, but at some point you gotta sit down. Which is why we ordered a bunch of furniture.
And just like that, we have a place to sit! Several places, actually.
Until this week, Mr. Fletcher has had some trouble navigating the slippery wooden staircase.
No more! And why not add a little zigzag spice to the upper level while we’re at it?
Now that we’re finally getting rid of those pesky moving boxes, we’re able to test out the garage. Given the new lift kit, we had real concerns about where Ruby Jean would stay.
No Ruby Jean means no Greg, so it’s a good thing SHE FITS! (Even if just barely..)
Now that the construction and remodel work is complete, it’s time to unpack! But first, let’s take a look at the empty house.
And while we’ve been working on the inside, here are some of the things that have been popping up outside in the yard.
One of the most exciting things about this move is the prospect of designing a brand new studio. From scratch.
As with our remodeling project, I’ve left the work to the professionals…
Eric Clark and his crew at Evolution Builders have been hard at work transforming our new home. They are truly incredible!
We did this work (mostly) ourselves in the past, but this time we’re leaving it up to the professionals. Smart. Very smart.
One morning I counted seven construction vehicles and two moving vans parked outside.
Throughout this process we had to improvise our work space…
… but the key is to keep calm and remember to enjoy some wine on the sun porch.
Construction (remodeling) in the new house has been at full tilt for the last week or so, but that won’t stop us from celebrating our arrival in Keene with the delivery of a fresh pizza from Cheshire Village and a little wine!
Moving is never fun, but it’s always tiring. Eventually we got everything packed up and ready to go…
The new owners were wonderful to work with and we sailed through the closing with smiles all around.
Remind me, what is it realtors actually do? FSBO is the way to go!
So, that was quick. 11 hours to be exact.
And now we’re gonna need to find somewhere else to live…
How ’bout Keene NH?
