Today, the new studio redecoration has been finished, so I went there to check it out and it looks good! Took a couple of pictures too, but I was in a rush to get back to Nakameguro before the next client arrived, so the shots didn’t come out really well, except for the one I’m posting below.
Still trying to decide whether I’m going to allow shoes on in the new place… The flooring looks really nice —and I’ve been reassured it’s pretty resistant and easy to clean too— so I really don’t know what to do. Shoes on in the waiting area (the one you can’t see in the above picture) and shoes off in the working area (the one visible in the photo) sounds like the best way to go, but I’m still thinking about it.
Next step, starting to bring in the furniture. I’ve got new, nice stuff, to match the interior; all black, naturally :D
This morning I sent out a few hundred e-mails too, announcing the move and all the details published in the previous article. Hugest
Bcc list I’ve ever seen :)
Some of them bounched back as a result of overzealous ISPs trying to fight back spam with half-assed, ass-backwards methods and some of them returned with “User unknown” errors as a result of people changing their e-mail addresses and forgetting to let me know about it, in which case I can’t really do anything but hope they’ll visit the website and notice the location change.
Speaking of which, if you haven’t received yet any mail from me —but you think you should have— please contact me from your new address and I’ll send you all the details a.s.a.p. I have a template ready for mobile phones too, just in case. And while we’re talking about e-mails, I’d also suggest getting rid of those archaic AOL and Hotmail accounts and getting something more reliable ;)
So far, between the printer–friendly version and the interactive one I set up at GoogleMaps, I think I’ve got it pretty well covered, but —should you need any other format, such as PDF— please ask me and I’ll send you one in no time.
Again, About the Period of the Move
Just want to make sure there are no misunderstandings, so I repeat: the new place is going to be open on Saturday, June 21st. If your appointment is anytime before Sunday, June 15th, you should come to the old place, in Nakameguro.
And I guess this is it for now. Further updates —especially the one regarding the new phone and FAX numbers— as soon as I have’em.
Thanks a lot for reading this!
