    Shoot man, I’m multitasking. Putting animals together during the day and painting at night. I’m at a stand still on the painting for a bit until the contractors get the remodel and tile all finished up though.

    Mark have no fear my friend. He’s so crazy that when he was working on my stuff he jumped out of bed at 2 am because something was bothering him and ran back to the shop.

    Getting so close I can taste it!
    Show room is almost finished 339D1828-79F3-4E1A-925C-42C77A9A4E3B.jpeg They are getting ready to rebuild the support beam into a set of double sided useable shelves. 41BDE1A7-45F8-4CFB-B365-3A5F17923E65.jpeg Break area is getting there C8036DD9-815B-4A33-BFAD-76E890318D1A.jpeg 3F6E3ED4-CBE7-4560-AA2A-D504C0533F8A.jpeg 710D630D-3EBA-4FEC-A363-2AAE43689E54.jpeg batbroom 1 is mostly painted, still waiting on the new sink to come in and do the trim. 75A40AF3-F063-4381-9733-B9602F06CEAA.jpeg Entry way from the studio into the shop is painted. Needs trim and flooring 374A1455-7E74-4494-9732-8E500D6EC573.jpeg This room lacks the trim painted. B802B7DC-39DF-4B4F-B4B4-3CDA6F65A0D4.jpeg Upstairs bathroom has the new toilet and shower in and tile is down. Need to paint and new sink 4C1AF87E-9668-4B8C-BE7B-5C5345AC30E5.jpeg 59CBF46A-7A07-45CF-9863-7EA272AD9B56.jpeg The rest of the upstairs hasn’t been started and that’s a project for a later date. I’m thinking of putting another business upstairs as there is a ton of room or I may just use it as storage. On the bright side I have one whole room I decided to make into my dedicated reloading room!!! I’ll take pics of it once it’s all set up, whenever the hell im going to have time to do that. Anyway here is a few more pics of upstairs, I didn’t take pics of all of it because I’ve started moving some stuff over and the rooms are a mess with boxes.

    That is going to be such a grand work space! I like the idea of the reloading room upstairs too.
    Be sure to put a sink upstairs for case cleaning.

    Go ahead and use it, might even get folks in the door! They will be surprised that you only do taxidermy but you could start that line of wildebeest under garments so it is not complete false advertisement!
