We have been running our business, the studio, offices, meeting space and so on, all out of the house that we purchased last August, here in Fonthill. When we purchased our house, we knew that when it came time to move in (when we get married) that we would need to build an addition to house the studio, meeting space, office space, and so on, for Bryan Caporicci Photography.
Well, that time has come, and after a long series of events and set-backs, that transition is now happening. We have officially received our permit and are moving ahead, full-force, with the addition; the new home for Bryan Caporicci Photography. We couldn’t be more excited!
We thought that it might be interesting and informative to keep everyone updated with the progress as we move forward with the studio.
This addition to our home in Fonthill is a dream-come-true. We will have the ideal work-from-home situation, where we won’t have to drive to a studio, but at the same time, we will have a completely separate building to work, meet, and shoot in. The addition is going to be a 1500 square-foot, 2-storey building attached to the west-side of our house, complete with a separate entrance.

Some fun techincal/mechanical terms/drawings. Fun stuff! Thanks goodness we have a great contractor!
Here is the first step – tearing off the existing siding and deck.
This tree was completely rotted, had no branches left, and was right in our way. Here’s my Dad working on cutting it down.
This is one of the trees in the front of our house. While we LOVE this tree, it was in the way of our dream-studio, so it had to go. Our contractor, Nick, took care of this tree. It was way too high for our comfort. If you look close, you can see Nick up there in the tree.
There’s Paul, one of Nick’s assistants, lugging away the tree branches.
All the brances are gone and the tree is about to go …
Now it’s gone. It’s bitter sweet, really. Check back, often, for more updates on the studio as we move things along! Cannot wait!
