Progress continues on the Kleefeld Comics Library. At a much faster rate than I had originally anticipated too!
I've got my desk pretty well set up, and some art on the (now-painted) walls. I've got the two built-in wall shelves filled, and I just wrote a check for a contractor to build some custom shelving units for my long boxes. He'll also be making kind of a chaise longue thing with more long box storage underneath. I've still got another book case and some free-hanging shelving to get, but that's just a trip to Ikea when I get a chance.
(I'm saving pictures until things are done, by the way. I plan to put together a nice progress video together, along with a lot of shots explaining how/why I made all the decisions I did.)
(Oh, and for those concerned, I've already got a UV filtering film on the windows, so the damage to my art and comics should be substantially minimized.)
So it looks like I'll have my Library together by the end of the year. Much sooner than the "sometime maybe around the middle of 2014" than I was originally thinking. But better yet, it's far enough along now that it's really easy for me to envision how it will ultimately look. It's a fair bit different than what I was originally was thinking but it's looking increasingly more functional, accessible and -- best of all -- REAL!
