Did We Mention We Moved? Part 2

July 1st, 2012 we officially moved our studio to Seattle Washington. It was an exciting time for us, since we hadn't been in the same city since 2009.

We found an awesome studio south of the city in Georgetown, which is a funky, industrial, artsy part of town. It felt like the perfect spot for our studio and we were lucky enough to find a space in the Old Rainier Beer bottling plant.

We are on the ground level with windows that open right out onto the street. If you look at the above picture, we are 6th window from the left or the window that is in the middle of the red car.

To get the press into our studio, we negotiated having a double door installed into the wall. This is what we found the day we were moving in:

A hole was literally being cut into the wall as we arrived to move the press!


 Below is a step-by-step photo timeline that my dad was kind enough to take while the press was being moved into the building:

Here is our press buried in the back of the U-haul

Going through the halls

 See the forklift through the hole in the wall?

Of course, it took us a while to figure out if this was where Bill was going to stay.
Our negotiation faces look intense. 

Success! Decision made. Farewell Paperie officially moved in!

---> Next up, transforming our studio into it's current cute space.
