    Well, we put the deposit on the studio, to take possession May 1. Still lots of work to be done:

    The landlord is doing this:
    -The pipes that come down low from the roof aren't used, so they're being cut out.
    -Replacing the door with a new one
    -More power

    We are doing this:
    -Staining the beams and columns
    -Painting the cement/brick wall
    -Painting the floor

    -We'll have a couple couches, a desk, computer (2), scanner
    -We're covering about 1/3 of the cement wall with bookshelves, which we've already started buying for:

    I'm really excited :noes:

    There's random cool shit everywhere, like a giant safe, really old water heaters and railings and shit.. awesome looking antiques everywhere, tons of character. Surrounded by awesome alleys with stairways and doorways that are all beautiful.

    $1/sq ft, which is REALLY cheap for downtown

    $900/mth for 900 sq. ft., and we'll be renting it to others, from all the interest we've got, it should pay for itself = free studio :bowdown:

    edit: CAD, so about $0,80 USD per sq. ft., or $725/mth

    The dude said almost no one uses the building later than 7pm, and we'll usually start at like 630 pm, which is awesome. And it's in the basement, he said we can have music as loud as we want :bowdown:

    Fuck the blues. All they had to do was lose a couple of games for the Wild to sneak in. Was that too much to ask? :hsugh:
