Ok. So now that you have seen the amazing "after" images of the studio, take a gander at what this space looked like, pre-renovation, when my landlord bought the building a few years ago. I guess back in the day it was a shady (you think?!) after-hours club. Thanks to the vision of many long-time residents and new shop owners, the East End has quickly turned into one of Portland's trendiest neighborhoods (I can't wait for the rooftop martini bar construction to begin two buildings up from mine!).
