Did you know it takes a lot of effort to buy a building. Lemme tell you, it does. I think its a widely known "secret" that Justin and I have been looking at expanding Dirty Deeds for awhile now at the same time as making an impact in the local art community. I have these grand lofty goals of owning a multi-use space where we can have our boutique/studio space, as well as room for other artists and small business owners. In this space I have ample room for an art gallery for local talent and touring artists. Not so far off is a performance space for live theatre, music and special events.
Sounds great right? I thought so too.
Do you realize there are things such as money, zoning boards, fire marshals, codes, permits, blue prints, designers, builders, quotes, estimates, did I mention money?...needed to pull something off like that? Well yeah, some of those are no brainers, but even then its not simple.
Justin and I have scoured our town and close communities just searching to find that one perfect building that we can invest our life into transforming. Its exciting at times, stressful and above all an adventure.
At some point this will happen, even if it ends up by the time Im 60. Ill be one fabulously happy 60 year old with our dream business/building.
Ill keep everyone posted about our progress, pitfalls, and triumphs to hopefully encourage those who have the entrepreneurial spirit within them.
For now, I leave you with my pinterest, Inspiration board.
