New Studio Space for Ee Zimmer

New Studio Space for Ee Zimmer

It’s here. It’s complete. It works.

L&D Construction made it happen! Here’s our son Fenn’s time-lapse version which makes it seem an even faster process than it was, of course.

It’s an amazing space, and we spent the summer breaking it in (and busting our butts on landscaping). Stay tuned for an inside tour, and upcoming OpenStudio! FIRST FRIDAY, NOV 2, SAVE THE DATE!

Studio Construction

After a bit of a Family Hiatus from Social Media, we are excited to catch you up on the construction of StudioEeZimmer & the Airbnb!

First off, this little video-ditty about the concrete pour which actually happened way back in January! Next up- Framing the Space, and more details are already taking shape! L&D Construction is amazing, and so efficient- they work faster than we can keep up... Clearly. Anyways, concrete is an amazing material, so here is our testimony to the process: Enjoy.

About Fly Fishing

Zoo Slicky isn't a big fan of fishing. He actually finds it pretty painful. But it's his grandfather's passion, and Zoo loves his grandfather. And now that Grandfather has disappeared, Zoo would give anything to be fishing together again.

Zoo's Parents

Zoo's Parents

Zoo M. Slicky's parents are pretty okay (as far as parents go) but they have a weird obsession with how everything's supposed to be. They get really wigged-out when things don't go their way.

"Control freaks," Zoo says.

Freakish Temper

Zoo M. Slicky has some important stuff to figure out, like why his grandfather disappeared, and why is his family so hush-hush about it? They won't ever listen to him when he tries to explain things. And come on, everyone lets their temper get the better of them sometimes, don't they? Zoo's probably just a normal kid, right?

This is Bullwick Barnett. (That's his full name, but nobody ever calls him that). What he lacks in stature he makes up for in meanness. Extra spitty spit-balls are Bull's specialty. He's a total jerk, and at the same time he wants to be friends with Zoo! What the heck?

Ruthie is a year older than Zoo M. Slicky. She acts like she's a lot older, and when she's not busy ignoring him, she's very good at annoying him. But she is Zoo's sister, after all, and is pretty good in a pinch.

Introducing Stella

Stella Livret can usually be found in the school Library. It's her favorite place to research, and nobody bugs her there. She tends to disapprove of Zoo and his antics, but secretly kind-of likes him. Zoo is more than a little intimidated by her- she's a braniac! And she certainly won't stand for being called 'Livret'.

But he will come to appreciate her more than you can imagine.  

And she has a dog who does tricks.
