It’s been a little while since I’ve posted an update; between new responsibilities at my day job, producing Tampier Quadrants, and house hunting with my wife, it has been a busy few months! And this brings me the news that I am excited to share: VRSimpits will be moving to a new workshop at our new house!
After many months of searching, my wife and I are thrilled to have finally found (and successfully bid on) a new home. The housing market in our area is absolutely crazy at the moment, so we are thrilled and thankful to have found such a great house.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’re likely aware that VRSimpits.com is run in its entirety (everything from R&D to production to shipping) out of a 100 sq. ft. bedroom workshop in our apartment, which obviously presents some challenges (you read that correctly - one hundred square feet!). Our new house has a 1,000 sq. ft. unfinished basement which will be my new workshop, and the new home of VRSimpits production. I can’t wait to see what I’m able to accomplish with (literally) ten times the workspace I have now! If you haven’t seen the tour of my existing little workshop, you can find it here:
Logistically, our move the the new house will have the following impacts:
I will be enacting a temporary production halt for the months of April and May, 2021. We are scheduled to “close” on the new house (final purchase agreement, for those not familiar with US house buying customs) in early April, and will move into the house in the following weeks. In addition to the moving process itself, there are some upgrades and renovations I plan to make, so my spare time will be occupied with drywall (plaster) and painting for several weeks at least.
Due to this production halt, I am temporarily not accepting new orders, effective immediately. Orders placed prior to today will be fulfilled as planned, and I will of course continue offering customer support and warranty repairs as usual.
I’m very excited to enter this new phase of life, and to see how much more I’m able to accomplish with a proper workshop. Stay tuned for updates!
