Since 2008 Black Bed Sheet Books has been a respected name in independent horror fiction and a dynamic publisher and, like many success stories, began its roots inside a residential garage. In the Fall of 2014, its founder/operator Nicholas Grabowsky and his family, for a multitude of reasons, found themselves relocating their lives and the business back to that very same garage. This time, however, the garage must be modified into a very unique apartment-like dwelling and new headquarters for the growing business, a process which took four months including the holidays to complete and forced book production into a halt for as long. This short film is a chronicle of one independent book publisher's journey to transcend the obstacles threatening to shatter his family and business by acting on his vision to make them both work together though the power of garage renovation.
