add padding to logo in wordpress

I am using wordpress genesis executive pro theme.  Was told the very specific dimension for the logo which appears in upper left of site.  How do I add left padding?  I did an inspect element  and added the following but when it is applied, the right side of the logo gets cut off.

}

Looks fine to me
where is the problem?
Tom BeckCommented:
It doesn't to me.

In addition to adding the 10px of padding to the left, add 10px of width to .title-area on line 1043 of style.css.

.header-image .title-area, .header-image .site-title, .header-image .site-title a {
    float: left;
    margin: 0;
    max-width: 270px;
    min-height: 100px;
    padding: 0;
    width: 100%;
}

And remove 10px of width from line 2143 of style.css for the menu container.

.site-header .widget-area {
    width: 690px;
}
Corrected

I made the modifications Tom suggested and see no change.  I flushed cache and tried a different browser.  Please go to link below and let me know if it looks good to you.  Ugh, this wordpress is really driving me bonkers in that changes I make I don't see because of cache problems.  HTML sites are not a problem.

I am using godaddy's managed wordpress hosting plan.   maybe that is the problem.
nsitedesignsAuthor Commented:
just talked with host.  he said that I need to click flush cache no more than 2 times per 30 minutes and that I HAVE to click flush cache to view any update.  So in essence, I cannot make more than 2 tweaks every 30 minutes.  sucks man.

Just wondering if a trick like this would work in your case.
Tom BeckCommented:
Aslo noticed that in your screen shot you have an arrow pointing to the unsightly notch on the left edge. This is caused by the box shadow you have on line 496 of style.css. I would take that out. Looks better without it.

.site-inner {
    background-color: #fff;
    box-shadow: 0 0 0 1px #fff;
    clear: both;
    margin: 0 auto;
    overflow: hidden;
}

If you don't want to eliminate it then add the same box-shadow to the header to eliminate the notch, line 990.

.site-header {
    box-shadow: 0 0 0 1px #fff;
    margin: 0 auto;
    min-height: 100px;
    width: 100%;
}

If I use the function filetime solution, the system will put a new css file name into the head document.  So then I need to find that that name is and rename my css file that name?  Am I understanding that properly?

Tom, thanks for fixing my nitch.  I noticed it too and was trying to figure out how to fix.  Your solution worked perfectly!
Tom BeckCommented:
No. The file name remains style.css. You are appending a query to the end like style.css?v=25122011. The browser will read this as a completely different file than say style.css?v=25123990 and will load a fresh copy. I don't know if this will work for GoDaddy hosting specifically though. The query is appended automatically by the script so you don't have to do anything differently once the script is in place. I would remove the script when the development work is done to restore the advantage of the server side caching.
