There was art, too, so that added to the pile of stuff. A large Larry Welo print (Vanishing Point) that I have had for years now, a print of the Frescoes of St. Thomas, a Jim Brandenburg photo of a buffalo at sunset, and my little "Beat Congestion with Transit" Art Deco thing from Chicago. Still, it all fit easily into our Subaru.
I am currently in the hunt for some new sort of office set-up. I have got a number of projects on the go at the moment, and for the time being I can work from home, but I think there is something to be said for having a creative work space that's separate from home. My needs are simple - I need a place to write, a file cabinet, a window, preferably on an intersection. Second story would be nice, but I could do with a ground floor situation.
The thing is, this kind of office arrangement is not easy to find. There is a metric sh_t load of empty office space but it's all several thousand square feet. I need an office, or an office and and workspace adjacent to it.
My latest idea is to just buy a small, foreclosed house. That would give me a project and a workspace in one, and probably a garage for, oh... a sailboat perhaps? We could hold on to it and work there and then when/if the market turns around, I could probably flip it for a profit.
For the short term, I am fine at home, so that buys me some time to look at options and try on ideas, which is probably best in this situation.
