Right now, this is a big (but brand new) empty space, approx. 4500 sq. ft. in size. No walls, no floors, no ceilings. But in 5-6 weeks, this space will have walls, flooring, ceiling, and will be filled with an overwhelming burst of color and fiber. Take a peek at the new Colorado Loopy Ewe Space!
What a long process this has been. We found this space back in August, so you can imagine the negotiations and back-and-forth that has gone on during this time, since we just last week signed off on the final papers. We toured a lot of options, and this was our first choice. It’s in a wonderful area (Front Range Village on Harmony Rd., for those of you familiar with that) and there is a Dazbog coffee right across the street.
The space is U-shaped and the photos are a bit deceiving. In fact, we took these photos and over a period of the next week, I had convinced myself that it was too small, as I looked at the photos over and over. We went back over there and I was reminded of how big it is in person and the photos don’t show it. There is plenty of room in there! (I made WH stand there to give it a little perspective.) So now we’ll watch as the construction people do the build out and we’ll see our space as it comes together just the way we envision it. I’ll look forward to sharing the finished space with you after Thanksgiving.
On another note – I didn’t have to wait long for the snow to re-appear again. (As predicted, it was in the 50′s last weekend and the first snowfall melted.) They predicted 4-8″ yesterday and then changed it to 10″ last night. I’m used to the weather people saying “could be up to 8″ of snow overnight” and you wake up and there is an inch on the ground in the morning. Such a bummer. It’s beautiful outside this morning – all fresh and white – and it’s still coming down slowly. We’ll lose it again this weekend as it heads back into the 50′s. I have to say, I kind of like this routine. Pretty snow mid-week, warmer temperatures on the weekend. I hope this keeps up.
