After looking at an old furniture factory, General store right beside a mainline, feed mill that generated its own power, 50 acre farm and countless houses, we finally bought a new house/factory!

While it isn’t any of the above cool places, the one we finally settled on still rates up there on the neat scale. It is 120 years old, and still in good shape, that is, it isn’t full of shoddy renovation attempts. Will need a bit of work, but that is made up for by its character, rural location, and ample space.

Best of all, we can move in and continue working with minimal disruption, and, finally, enough space to function!

I’ll keep my opinions of realtors to myself. Lets just say, lawyers don’t seem quite so bad anymore…..
