As we were becoming more familiar with our new home, one point of tension for me was around space, or a lack of it. With the studio building still under construction, there was no place or space for the overflow stuff, boxes than contained things like old photos, Christmas decorations, and the like. I had the realization that this was a problem we could throw money at to solve. We could rent a storage locker for the next few months while Birdsong Studio 3.0 gets built, placed, unfolded and set up.
I spent my day going back and forth loading up boxes and extraneous furniture pieces. I made five or six trips by day's end and we still have plenty of room. Today, paintings will get loaded in. For $90 a month, our space stress has been greatly reduced.
Our goal is to move out of the loft tomorrow and have our first sleep in our new High River home. With the exception of maybe the house plants (lovingly being cared for by Brian and Dale in Okotoks), all of our stuff will be fully consolidated at 36 4th Ave SE (and in our tiny storage locker).
