I am excited to report that construction of our new studio is well under way. As of this writing, the building is completely framed and the roof is only a few days from completion. ‘Roughing in’ of the plumbing is just about done and electrical rough-in work starts next week. The goal is to get the building fully enclosed as quickly as possible so that work can continue throughout the winter. As I write this blog (January 2012) it is 17 degrees. Not great weather for working outdoors.
The first floor studio area will have more than 500 square feet of useable space, fully heated and air conditioned, with 10 ½ foot high ceilings. With plenty of windows, we will be able to utilize a combination of natural and studio lighting. The second floor will contain an office/digital lab, bathroom and gallery space for client presentations. Samples of all of our products will be available for inspection.
The Big Bark studio is located at the foot of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Central Virginia. To be specific, we are just outside the town of Nellysford, in Nelson County Virginia, approximately 25 miles west of Charlottesville. We are only five or six miles from the renowned Appalachian Trail.
All of us associated with Big Bark Photography look forward to moving into the new space sometime this spring. We’ll keep you updated on our progress.
