Hi Bill, thanks for the reply. You can wait until you have it all to ship. Whatever is easier for you. No hurry. Talk to you soon.

Just thought I'd post an update on progress at the workshop. It's been awhile and things are progressing nicely. And, even though the interior is still under construction and I am considering further fundraising to get the place completed, we've already held 5 workshops there with instructors such as Clay Harmon, Holly Roberts, Eliot Dudik and Meg Griffiths.
Although the original Kickstarter goal of completing the shell of the structure was completed over a year ago, work has been ongoing on the interior. Plumbing, electrical, drywall, etc. I've been steadily moving forward on my own and honing my building skills. All rough electrical and plumbing work is complete as are the walls for the darkroom, utility and bathroom. I have just this week completed painting the walls, installing doors, etc. Although my original goal was to have the darkroom functional by this summer, the wicked winter we had made for delays. Add to that the crush of the Photostock Festival and I had to revise that goal to this Fall. I am on track for that and should have things functional, though not fully complete, by October.
It's been a long road since pressing the "go" button on the Kickstarter a year and a half ago, but it is been a great ride. It has already become a really cool place and I plan to have it finished and ready for a full schedule of workshops in 2015.
Please have a look at some of the progress photos and stay tuned!

Photostock Workshop Facility - Kickstarter Phase II (The Final Phase)
I should have posted here earlier, but we are now 3 days into the follow-up Kickstarter to get the interior of the facility completed and ready for a full schedule of workshops next year. It's going really well and as of this writing, we already have over 20% of the funding needed for a successful campaign! Thanks to everyone who has pledged to make this possible!
I hope you'll have a look and consider one of the cool, hand made prints and plates I am offering as rewards. There are also T-Shirts, Bumper Stickers and even original, Impossible/Polaroid prints for more affordable pledges.
Thanks for having a look and maybe even helping get this place across the finish line!!
I dearly wish I could take credit for pushing the project across the line, but I'm thinking I was a) around three hours too late and, b) at the tag end of 159 other backers! At any rate, YOU MADE IT!

Now it's time to buy all of the hard workers and visionaries a well deserved drink and I'm almost certain there's a need for a resupply of consumables, from the photographic to the gastronomic! So, still twelve days to go to contribute to the walls and the workers' waistlines.
Congrats again to all involved.
