New arrivals

For Shane Jones and I, the arrival last week of two small, fully insulated storage units felt like the first day of the rest of our lives. At long last, we can liberate the remainder of our artworks from offsite storage and declutter our studios - not to mention the spare bedroom. The next stage is to level the units (our driveway is on a slight slant), instigate a storage system - and also do a great deal of culling. 

From the day we ordered the units, locally based Ryebucks Portables Ballarat were brilliant to deal with. 

There were a few challenges involved in manoeuvring the units down our driveway, including  a very tight fit halfway along (see below) and overhanging tree branches. Kudos to their highly skilled driver, Kyle, for his patience, good humour, cool head and ability to think on his feet.

Arrival of the second unit:

We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us, but it will be worth it.
