Studio Sneak Peek

This weekend Scott's mom and stepdad came to visit and to work 
on a little project about which I am super-excited. We are converting our detached garage 
into an art studio and Alan is generously doing much of the labor to make my dream studio a reality.

This weekend he framed the ceiling and partition wall (to divide the studio side of the garage 
from the storage side), cut and installed a window, and added a door.

Over the next month or so we'll be finishing up the electrical work, sheetrock, floor, counter and trim. We plan to install an Ikea counter and sink, epoxy the concrete floor, and I have all kinds of dreams about storage and functional design. Follow my "dream studio" board on Pinterest (see the sidebar) if you want a glimpse 
of that obsession.

The room is taking shape and I can't wait to start using it!

  2. Ha--I told him you did that--you were my inspiration!
