Taking form

Here is the latest update regarding our Academy’s building progress. Right now this is what’s new that we have going for us:

• We have walls!!! (Come on, that deserved exclamation points.) That’s right, the studs are up and, not only that, but we have one side drywalled, too. The day that drywall went up was an exciting day, let me tell you. (And this week, as it keeps going up, continues to be exciting in many varied ways.)

• The reason we only have one side of the walls drywalled is because we are waiting on the fire suppression system permit to go through. That should happen by the end of this week.

Which means that next week or soon thereafter …

• The floor goes down

• The walls get painted

• The light fixtures go up

• We start to see external items such as shampoo bowls and such go in (which means the massaging pedicure chair will no longer be in my office — snap!)

And things generally start moving very, very quickly.

I. CAN. NOT. WAIT.

I just want to get our students in class! And I know they want to be, as well. And there is still room in the first class for anyone else who wants to get in on this right away (wink, nudge, cough).

Here are some visuals — enjoy!

The conference room (on the left) and pedicure room.

Just wait until the glass fronts are up!

Can you picture a runway show here?

It'll look cooler when the top piece is up.

The sophomore classroom. (where all of the color magic begins!)

Imagine glass walls right there ... and students inside!

My office (unless someone fights me for it 🙂 ).

There's the doorway. I like how it's tucked away.

I like that it's kind of tucked away next to the tucked away storage room.

Here’s the inside.

Yay, natural light!

So, there ya go! I’ll have even more exciting photos to post next week!
