Studio Progress


It’s exciting as we approach the finishing stages of the studio! Before I show you all the latest progress, I want to remind you what the studio looked like when we started.

Ack, that’s no good!

After the demolition, there was drywalling and painting. Notice that closet in the back was removed to make way for more space in the kitchen.

This week, the cabinet frame went up and the sinks went in.

And the floor started going down!

And down.

And it’s finished!

And it immediately got so dusty and dirty from work continuing around it, you can hardly see how pretty it is.

But eventually the work will be done and the floor will be clean. It’s beautiful. I love it and am so happy with my choice there.

Coming up: Next week will be all about trim and finishing the cabinets. Appliances will start going into place and finishing touches added, such as the self-closing main door and other assorted health department requirements. The countertop on the sink wall will go in last because it is on order and won’t be in until the beginning of May. The studio should be finished by mid-May. I’ll have the health department out for a final inspection and get my permit! Thank you to all of you who helped make it happen. I can’t wait for all of you who can to come see it!

    Coming along in leaps and bounds! It’s looking fabulous :yes:
    I thought of you yesterday when I attended a basket making course in a craft studio on a small-holding in the UK…I was thinking how fabulous your craft studio is going to be, and realise just how successful your venture is.

    whoa, that flooring is beautiful. glad the studio is coming along, and I’m anxious to see the finished project. (my photo still hasn’t arrived though…:bugeyed:)

    I love the brightness with that paneling gone! I also think the flooring is beautiful. I know two people who have used it and they like it a lot.

    Congratulations on a job well (almost) done.

    The floor is beautiful! You made the right choice. It goes especially well with the soft green paint color. I like that even though it’s going to have a lot of commercial style sinks and appliances and prep areas it’s more warm and inviting.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
