Feeling a little overwhelmed by piles of work

Quick! Load another kiln before the stuff buries us! We need to expand. Yes we do.

  1. I was reading your blog post on expanding your space and I think you should do it. You could pour the pad and pay it off this year.
    Then put the building on and pay it off the next year- then add all the good stuff... we did this over a period of years our selves -buy, pay, buy pay- it worked for us. Otherwise it is the old take out a loan. You need the space.
    On getting in early- we try to always be at work by 8 or 9- crazy right? And we tend to stop between 4 and 6 depending on the day. I try to think of this as a 6 day a week- sometimes 5-7, 9-5 job. Just get in get to work and get out- and have a plan. It seems you have most of that down.
    Best,

  2. Thank you for the encouragement. We've been plotting on how to afford this for a couple years. I really want it all done at once..because now is always better..but we may have to stretch it out over a couple years. Whatever it takes :)

  3. It's been rewarding to be able to run the business out of our house...but we really are feeling the pinch now. Production is such that we have outgrown the space. And I want to get a little more separation between our home life and our business life.

    And I want a house that isn't filled with dust!

    1. I get this! We did this in our basement to start with, 1/2 basement at that. Dust and kiln fumes are not great for your house, and it is your house. Plus I have to ask about insurance- are you covered? Most homeowners do not cover unless you have a business policy as well.
      Our work building burned down (up) in 2008, without insurance we would have gone bust on rebuilding.
