I just wanted to let you know how well things are going with 10 Horse Art Space! As I'm sure you can imagine, renovating a building of this size and turning it into space for artists is a HUGE task. Although I wish I could tell you that the building was abuzz with the sound of construction activity, but that is not yet the case. For anyone who has built a home from scratch, or done major structural renovations, you know that there is a great deal of preliminary work which needs to take place first.
And what does that preliminary work involve? Plans, lots and lots of plans. One of the great things about 10 Horse Art Space is that it's located in such a beautiful and inspiring, natural setting. And this usually means it is in an area that is very particular about maintaing that beautiful and inspiring, natural setting. Which means lots of planning. Planning on paper.
I'm happy to report that the architectural drawings are finally complete. But planning also involves other requirements, such as a full land survey and indicator survey to show where the new components of the Art Space will be located like water, septic and electric.
The planning stage is often one of the most lengthy parts of converting a building since all parties want to make sure that the final result is not only what everyone hoped for, but is completely up to code, too.
We're off to a terrific start and I'll be sure to include pictures in my next update when construction finally begins. Thanks again for supporting my project!
