Defunk Studios - New Build

Well I've been dreaming of this one for about 23 years now.
After lobbying with the city for a variance and getting building approval. We've finally broke ground and started prepping the site for our new building. 1 Tree removed and 20 tons of dirt later.

Digging holes for poles. Northeast Ohio dry clay is a PITA.
Materials getting delivered today. I guess this is what happens when you play with Lego's, learn an instrument and grow up. That and having an Uber supportive wife.

They are Grandfathered in under the "I made them" clause. They are pretty good helpers and they are learning the value of hard work.

A very cool experience I'm sure they'll never forget.

City made me go bigger and deeper with the holes but the poles are set. Now on to framing.

Got skirt boards and headers in this past weekend. Planning on hanging trusses on Tuesday so long as they are delivered on time.

Weather has not been playing nicely so we got delayed but after a late midweek gathering of friends we finished off the trusses last night.

Thank you sir. Weather has been better as of late. We have just a bit more framing to do and then we can start covering it.
