To be fair, it needed a new roof. And it looks as if there's a lot of remodeling happening inside, too. I'm guessing at least a new kitchen, probably a bathroom or two. It will be a nice little house when they're done. But Jeebus, 7 in the morning?
Started the CAD work on the facade last night. lio's CAD drawings of the mainstage entry are invaluable to this process, but I can also see why he wanted to do a scale model for the assembly. It's become obvious that I can't do what I wanted to do originally, just because there isn't room. It means modifying the concept a bit, but that's not exactly out of the realm of the unexpected-- rather, it's part of the process. What sucks about it is that it forces me out of a cool visual element and the presentation of it in the way that I wanted, and I don't know how to turn that around. I can still do the cool presentation part of it, but the impact won't be what it could have been. It also increases the amount of work that needs to be done.
The positive part of that is that it makes one possible point of contention go away. There is still one more that I have to deal with, but it may just get cut as unnecessary, as cool as it would be. I might have to go with a bit of artistic license, and play with just the suggestion of something, rather than having it actually be there. It's a nod to the practical reality of the space and how it has to be used.
Reality is not my friend.
