Beginning of another!

Yesterday my studio started to be built.  The weather was lovely and really conducive to starting a building project.  My old summer house was removed in a trice and the new studio arrived on the back of a trailer and by the end of the afternoon was taking shape nicely

Today Mike - master studio-builder extraordinaire - returned to work on it a bit more.  It is sleeting/raining/freezing but he is still out there doing his own thing.  The studio is a lovely size and I shall love working in it.  Thank God for Strip Lighting with day-light bulbs otherwise the back of the studio would be a real challenge but I have invested in a couple of strips so hopefully all that will be taken care of.  

I shall have french windows at the front which will provide light for actually sewing but the back of the studio is for fabric dyeing and I am sure with the correct lighting it will be fine.

Here is a photo of where we are at the moment:

 

 

The depth of the room is 21 foot and although the front is relatively small the back measures 13 foot 6 inches so plently of space for me.  It is all going to be plaster boarded and have heating and lighting.  I am SO excited!

Even though it's been lashing down today, Mike has been here putting the roof on so the electrician can start tomorrow. Yay!

Weather is really our no. 1 enemy when it comes to renovation. Good thing you have a dedicated man like Mike who's willing to work in a “...sleeting/raining/freezing...” kind of weather. By the way, what was he fixing? Was it your roof? I have read your most recent post but I've ever seen the result of your studio. I hope you could share it just for some inspiration for my office's renovation.

Anyway, you check this site for other inspirations: http://www.barnhouseexteriors.com/
