Back Open :) Thanks Everyone!

So we decided to move in the new place early and everything went smooth. Still have to unload some boxes but it already feels comfortable. We are back up and running! I’ll be sure to post some pics for anyone interested. Just need to take a nap first!

PS: I hope everyone is recovering from their minor “heart-attacks”, I know the last headline was a bit cruel, but you know me :)

This is great, that means your expanding and doing more and more work. Now you can have more people working with you and you can take more projects at the same time. I have been doing the same and believe me is the best change I have ever made, I would like to see when you finish with the place, put some photos for the community so they can get inspired by that and make them strong of what their doing and tell that they can make it to. Looking forward to see those photos, I will be posting some soon! take care and be you like always.
