CherryBiz Hosts Meetup with Neighborhood Design Build Professionals

Written by Emily Mathon

CherryBiz hosted an open house to delve a little deeper into the question of “So you want to build a studio?” with six design professionals from the Cherrywood neighborhood. After grabbing a beverage and snack, local artists and small business owners paired up with one of the design professionals for a short consultation. After a few rounds of consultations, individuals continued more informal conversations about unique projects and potential collaboration.

My wife and I are transitioning my home office as we anticipate a new baby, and thinking about what we might do with our outbuilding medium to long-term.  The format was a perfect way to do some introductory visioning with thoughtful design-build people from the neighborhood, as well as get some technical code questions answered.  As an added bonus, it was fun to meet and share a beverage with other Cherrywood folks asking and answering similar questions.

I always enjoy talking to people about potential projects. I had more fun then usual at the CherryBiz open house because I had the chance to talk to several people about various potential projects, all in one evening!

I very much enjoyed meeting various folks from the ‘hood and loved hearing of their hopes and thoughts of various dream studios or offices.  Their needs were quite diverse, and it was a pleasure to chat and brainstorm about potential structures and affordability. I think it was great opportunity for individuals to get an idea of feasibility and perhaps new ways to look at developing a studio/office.
