Stability hasn't lasted long however, and barely 12 months later we've taken a critical look at our situation from the point of view of finances and lifestyle and have purchased our own home. As a temporary measure, I'll set up shop in the double garage, but the long-term goal will be to build a workshop at the rear of the property with the luxury of being able to give consideration to the heating and cooling, lighting and storage requirements best suited to our budget and the specialised needs of my guitar building hobby. In many respects it's a distraction I'd rather not face, but I'm confident that the planning, expense and hard work involved will pay off in the long term. It's my hope that I'll be much more inclined to spend time building guitars, particularly through our extreme summers when it's too easy to spend what spare time I do have lounging around in the air-conditioned house!
Updates to my blog will slow to a trickle in the weeks ahead, however, normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
