So I’m all moved into my new Loft. I’m not totally settled in yet- still some boxes lying around, and my living room isn’t set up yet – no big deal, since I added television to the list of things I gave up for Sober October.
My office is mostly setup with the wicked desk my dad and I built. I went out looking for filing cabinets today – jeebus h, I didn’t think they were that expensive… I’ll keep my files in boxes for now.
My buddy Steve, who was the designer behind the Hair Salon space I helped build earlier this year, is building a bar for me – which is going to totally rock. Much of it is enclosed in frosted plexiglass which will be lit from behind. I’m so excited to have a space big enough that I can have a bar.
The place turned out great. I’m so happy that I bought here. There are still a few little annoyances that the developer has to finish up – a bit of painting, the phone jack in my office doesn’t work, they still need to replace two of my counter tops (they got scratched during the build)… but whatever, they’ll get to it soon I’m sure.
My dog loves it here. I thought she’d go crazy at every little noise in the hallway, or bumps from the neighbours upstairs… but so far she’s been totally calm – there’ve been guys working right outside our door (much of the building is still under construction) and she doesn’t seem concerned in the least (not a very good guard dog)…
I’m having my house warming next weekend, so I have just over a week to get everything in order. It’ll be tough, but do-able. I’m really looking forward to entertaining here. There’s so much space, and it’s just got a really cool vibe about it… lots of character with the 12′ ceilings, 70-year-old hardwood, exposed pipes and beams, and the sliding doors. I’ll stop gushing.
If you’re in the city and I’ve neglected to send you an invitation, get in touch – the party is Saturday October 30th and it’s going to be an assload of fun.
Oh, and I suppose this is as good a time as any to introduce the new name of my web company – I’m dropping Posativ for several reasons, not the least of which was the difficulty everyone had in spelling it, being spelled wrong and all.
The name I’ve chosen in it’s place is something that identifies me with my new surroundings, that represents a new beginning and a major transition in my life. It’s trendy and it kinda rolls off the tongue. And there will be no way to confuse the spelling. It’s also the title of this post, Suite204. New website coming soon!
