The Vespiary: now up and running

We featured Audra Loyal's marvellous Vespiary from where she planned to run her bookbinding and bookmaking business and were delighted to hear from her that she is now up and running. Audra was featured in the local paper The Missoulian in a nice piece by Keila Szpaller which is well worth a browse. Here's a snippet:
The shop's footprint is 12 feet by 12 feet, and the interior space is 10 feet by 10 feet. Even though the "Garden Office" behind their Alder Street home is small, Loyal said it's a much better place to restore books than the dining room table had been. "I would lose an hour a day just setting up and cleaning up," said Loyal, technically a "conservation technician." "And I never felt really good about how I was storing things." Despite it's miniature look, The Vespiary is roomy enough. It holds Loyal's books, the personal ones and the ones she's fixing for clients, as well as her tools of the trade.
It's certainly a decent size and features a sofa for clients, a loft/guest room as well as Montana sheep's wool insulation.
