Every year I hope to get my studio open by the fall. By golly, this time I'm going to do it! Hubby has been off work for a couple of weeks, so we took advantage of it. We have already finished my office, a music room for my husband to get together with his friends, and the back porch enclosed and made into a laundry room/fabric room. So inside, we only have 2 rooms to finish! The living floors have been replaced and new joists put in, floors leveled and new plywood. There were only 2 plugins before and just today, we are finishing getting all my plug ins ready to go, including a double one just above where my desk will go. How convenient will that be? I decided to take all the sheetrock and wallpaper down from the walls, then the ceiling too. I guess that was about the messiest job ever! I am leaving the beadboard walls bare and just putting a sealer on them and tomorrow is the day to pick out the flooring for the living room and get it installed. (Lucky my husband and in-laws are in the flooring business!)
We still have a lot to do--putting up trim, painting trim & doors, new front door and building a mantel, but we have come a long way. After the living room, we still have to:
1. Finish kitchen
2. Screen in front porch (for Rusty)
3. Paint house
4. Finish roof (waiting for a "cooler" few days)
I may not be completely done by October, but will have it ready to open. I can't wait....if you are out of town or even out of state, I am just down the road from Unclaimed Baggage, so you can make a fun day of shopping & visiting!
