Building Renovation

This blog will document progress on our business, show some behind the scene glances at projects, and is a place for relevant announcements such as events and classes. Check back often and let us know if there is anything in particular that you would like to see here!

We began renovations on our commercial building in Burnsville, NC in late March 2017. We have come a long way since… check it out below. We can’t wait to have you join us at our location, opening to the public on August 2.

We first visited the location in February, and you see what the raw building looked like at that time. We wrote down all of our plans that day as we walked around the space, envisioning our ideal studio and gallery space. We secured the building and got to work as soon as we could. We built a dividing wall and office, painted, cleaned out and demolished the existing shed and re-sheathed it, scraped and painted the outside of the building, reinforced the garage door, waterproofed in places that had leaks, hauled a ton (literally) of asphalt away, did a little landscaping, a few coats of paint on the gallery floor, fabricated and hung our sign! Thankfully there wasn’t much blood – but there was sweat, a few tears, some handstands and a lot of late nights to make this possible. The last row of photos is the gallery today – still a work in progress but it’s come a long way and we can’t wait to use this space.
