We’re well into 2015 now (I can tell because I’ve stopped trying to date everything 2014) and I’m incredibly excited because Chain of Fools is actually beginning to take shape in a real, visible way. Projects like this seem like they rarely stay on schedule, but it appears that I’ll be open for business in March, as initially planned. Progress has felt painfully slow until rather recently (cleaning away 40+ years of dirt and dust takes patience), but the shop is finally CLEAN, and I’ve got plenty of light now, so I can say that with confidence! It still needs a coat of paint to look like an official business, and not a dungeon, but the hardest part is done. I can’t wait till spring!
Here’s a little sample of the progress, starting with the day I got the keys.
