Changes, Changes, and more Changes

My new neighborhood in Port Babbage

(Port Babbage) – Well, the past couple of weeks have been quite busy, both in RL & SL, which directly led to changes in both. First, I have moved away from Antiquity, and returned to New Babbage. The reason for the departure rests mostly with the desire to return to my Steampunk roots. Though I had considered a number of other locations (both Victorian and non-Victorian), after consultations with Mayor Sprocket, I decided to relocate to a large vacated lot in Port Babbage, next door to Miss Eggberta Echegaray, editor of the New Babbage Cog.

However, upon leaving, I needed to relinquish some the duties I had taken on in Antiquity. The Royal Antiquity Navy is currently in the capable hands of Duke Angus, who will command it until he decides upon his successor. I will still serve in its reserves, as an independent privateer, whenever called upon to duty (or just for a good fight).

The Antiquity Gazette, fresh from an interview by a German newspaper about "Hyperlocal Journalism", will tentatively be run by Miss Hope Coakes, who based on her previous writings, will serve as an outstanding editor (-trix?) and keep its residents (and visitors) up to date with all of the happenings in Antiquity, as it grows dramatically.

As a bit of trivia, I was almost one of the original residents of New Babbage, but unfortunately my RL military service threw the proverbial "rusty wrench" into my plans. I had considered Steelhead, or possibly waiting for a new Caledonian sim, but after wandering around the gritty streets of the New Babbage Canals, and relaxing in Port Babbage, I had made my mind up to return. When the Mayor offered me the current plot, I jumped on it, and now… I only have one problem.

I had acquired a low-prim domicile, with the expectations to modify it for my future business. But a combination of focusing on making product, limited RL time, and my lack of building skill (for what I envision), leads me to ask any readers if there is a decent and innovative SL builder I might be able to contact for the new building. I do have a specific concept on what I want, but I do not know of any builders personally, much less one who might understand my vision for a novel building.

My infamous cube... it just dosen't make a statement - except "I'm a plain box" (*grumble*)

If anyone knows of such a person, I would sincerely appreciate a comment (or IM in world)! Thank you!

Welcome to New Babbage sir!
Your new lot is just a stone's throw from my studio in Babbage Square. (I am just the other side of the Palaeozoic Museum). I am quite sure Sir Arthur will be contacting you soon reagrding your sitting for a portrait for his Orientation Station project.

Herr Mavromichali Szondi, the Jaegermeister, builds excellently and has a focus on low prim use. He resides in Caledon Cay, although he has been building outside of our collective area of interest as well.

@ Baron Wulfenbach - Ty! Unfortunatly, between the time I announced seeking a builder and the time I received your information, I had already contracted with another - sorry!
@ Miss Laval - Ty! And congratulations on your plot in Steelhead! I look forward to seeing the beautiful docicile I'm certain will reside there.
