Studio and the Shed

posted in: Business, Craigslist, Photography | 0

It all started by looking on craigslist. I buy a lot of gear on craigslist and other things over the years. Looking around I found a shed on CL and thought that might work. My current studio was getting filled up with a lot of gear, props and sadly other household items. I needed more space. So I emailed, then call, then talked to the county and everything seemed good. I drove over to Ellensburg and bought the big shed. That’s when things started to fall apart. It took months to finally get the shed. Here but once it was here I had a few other problems. Soon they multiplied. I felt like I was in the movie Money Pit. But the dream was still alive so I went forward. This is the story of my adventure.

Oh dear the county decided it didn’t like the shed.


Weeks go by and it’s decided the best thing it to split the shed into three to make the county happy.

The county wanted it apart too so now its a village. And some of my twitter followers are calling me Johnny Three Sheds!

At this point my budget has almost doubled. But we press on.


The drywall is going up and now we are feeling better.


Still working on it, but my 3 week timeline is closing in on 9 months!
