Binkley’s New Studio & Gallery Takes Shape

My new digs of studio and gallery in Squamish, BC, Canada is taking shape. My realtor and I made a site visit a few weeks ago and found the footings and foundations were finished.

Michelle and I visited the work site on June 7, 2017 and saw that rough-ins for the floor drain and second main floor bathroom were visible amongst a new web of re-bar that will reinforce the concrete floor. Michelle and I are standing at what will eventually be the front of the unit, but we’re starting to get excited, now that the workplace is becoming more than just a drawing on paper.

The contractor is estimating that the building will be completed in late fall 2017.

      Thank you, John. We’re looking forward to it, too. I’m surprised by how many old collectors who we’ve talked to who are concerned for my impending commute. It’ll sure be a much more inspirational drive than if we bought in the valley, which was our other option. Nice to have your support.

      Mary, thanks for stopping by my site for a read. The contractor won’t give an end date, but sometime in the fall. :)
