We're Live!

Finally! Our new shopping cart is up and running! Check it out!

I know it's been a while between updates, but between moving and getting set up in the new place, PLUS working on the shopping cart, I've been a very busy boy. The new place looks amazing! We're just putting the finishing touches on it, and then I'll take some pictures and post them. Stay tuned!

 ... turn and face the strange ch-ch-changes."

Yeah, so we did a mini move on Monday, when I did the last update, but then ran into complications. Long story short, I rented a U-Haul yesterday and with the help of Dave, Amica, and Jorge, moved more gear than you could play in a month into the new space... and my house hasn't been this empty since I moved in. It's so weird... and a little sad, my big empty lonely house (even my cat's a little freaked out)... but it's new and exciting at the same time. I still don't have current pictures of the finished space, but I have some from a few weeks ago that show further progress than the last batch.

The room with the window is the lounge (you should see it now!). In front of it is the packing and shipping station. The studio is behind the lounge. To the left is the office, behind that the bathroom, further back is the work area, and the storage room is all the way at the end (behind the back wall).

It's All Happening!

... like RIGHT NOW! The two main things we have going on here at FMO are the big move to our new location and getting our new shopping cart up and running. Each of those things have been demanding my full-time attention, on top of what I usually have going, and I've been running around like a nut 24/7 trying to get everything ready. It's all very exciting, but incredibly hectic as well. So if anyone feels I may have been a little neglectful lately, please feel free to be a squeaky wheel and let me know.

The shopping cart has a go live date of (dare I say it) this Saturday, November 8th, but a LOT needs to happen before then. And we're scheduled to start moving into our new location like... TODAY! Seriously, the movers will be coming by with the big rig later today.

Speaking of the new location, it looks fantastic! All the construction was completed a couple of weeks ago; then there was painting, electrical, plumbing, flooring; now we're just doing some finish work and a few final tweaks and then moving in. I'll bring the camera so I can get some pics to show you all what the finished space looks like. In the meantime, check out these shots I got while it was still under construction...
