Well, after much hemming and hawing and consternation, the new storage locker for the studio is done! All my stuff is now safely stowed, and the studio looks a thousand times neater and more professional. Here are photos of the locker under construction:
One of the big challenges was the fact that the floor is far from level. The building was once a taxi/livery dispatch and maintenance facility. The floor has multi-directional slopes to it to allow for cleaning of spilled coolant/transmission fluid/oil. In one corner (opposite where the locker is) there’s even a covered-over maintenance trench for greasemonkeys to get under the cabs to change the oil.
