It'll be 3 years this Oct. since my husband and I bought our funky little house in the trees. The house was far from finished, but everything oozed of potential. It's amazing the "set-back" effect that Lupus can have! But now we've started the reinuvation process on my art studio!! Yea!! So everything is packed away and piled precariously, ready to be moved at a moments notice.
Twilight and Thebes are coming out to help Daniel with the crazy task of putting on the new roof!! Thank God!! I've been working like crazy on the inside...putty, and sanding the sheetrock. My goal is to have it ready to paint by time my girls get here next week!!!
I've pretty much finished prepping the walls now. We'll be putting in the insulation, and a new ceiling!! I've even gotten the promise of some electrical lighting so I can work through the night!!
As it shows, all I have now is a sub floor. So we'll be laying another layer of plywood down, and then I'll get to choose my flooring!! I'm going to go with vinyl tiles for easy clean up of fibers and water and whatnot!!!
The room is 16 foot x 16 foot. It only has one window, which we are replacing. Normally this would be bad for an art studio, but because of the Lupus, it works for me!!
I love this little arched doorway leading to our closet! Our closet is really nice and big, but you can see that now it's our main storage place! We do have an outdoor storage shed, but it's currently holding all of the building supplies, Ugh!! I can't wait to use the closet as a closet again!!
This is what the outside looks like! Daniel has chosen crazy cabin style siding to put up, and it should be a very interesting process!! He says he's going to start it as soon as the new roof in on......hmmmm.
This is the front yard of the studio. My longterm goal is to turn this into a beautiful patio with flowers and shade....maybe this fall?? But if not, definately next summer!!
