The move begins

Posted in 'General' on January 22, 2011, 9:28 am
Well it's time up for me at the shop, it has been both rewarding and challenging at times but nevertheless my decision to be there is not a regrettful one.

If anything I have come out better informed, and much more focussed on what I really need to grow this business.

We went through quite a hectic time in deciding what to do with the business once lease is up, from demolishing our home and rebuilding, to renting, to even setting up in my fathers garage.  Don't get me wrong, I searched high and low for another suitable shop however everything was either too far, too greasy (formerly mechanics etc...) and at the end of the day, I'll still have my youngest tagging along most days as he'll be in 4 yr old kindy.

In the end we are simply moving the business into our master bedroom, yep thats right!  The room we had as a study has now moved into lounge area, the kids into old computer room, we are moving into their old bedroom and business is going into master bedroom.
This is a temporary measure for approx 12-18 months which will give us enough time to organise extending our family home with an extra bedroom, garage (which will be my workshop) and maybe even renovate kitchen, bath and put up a nice outdoor entertaining area.

So far so good, I had the beautiful Tracy from MiaMoo nappies help me sort through heaps of stuff and box it all up, so most of my stock, fabric etc is boxed up and already home...just waiting for the big boys to move the "big" items like my industrial machines and cutting table.  I am quite pleased with progress as this means I've had minimal interruption to my work flow and really only have down time for about 1 week.
