It has been a while since I have posted any pics of the studio. Construction has been substantially complete since early last fall with the exception of finishing off the drywall etc on the interior west wall. I am completely settled in now and I have to say that the studio is definitely my 'happy place.'
Of course it could always be bigger but the truth is I have room for everything as long as I keep organized. The studio is all cleaned up now in anticipation of some company coming this next weekend so it was a great time to take some photos to share.
My husband gets all the credit! The studio is a converted porch on our new barn. The space is approximately 10' x 40'. Hubs did all the construction work including installing my gorgeous white oak and cherry floor. Of course he had a great helper (me)! The energy efficient windows let in a huge amount of light. The ceiling fans and overhead lighting are also perfect. The studio is heated with a pellet stove and having lived through one winter already, I can say honestly I was never cold.
Hubs also built me a custom table with a slot for my Bernina PE350. The top is made from ambrosia maple to which he applied a red dye. It is really stunning in person! He aslo made a custom cabinet for my long arm thread which is so convenient. The shelves along the south wall under the windows house my fabric stash. I love having everything where I can see it.
The studio also features a very large design space on the north wall. I have some completed quilts displayed there now and can easily fit several large projects. I have to use a step ladder to reach the top!
The chalk board signs are a reclaimed bed frame that I bought at an antique store. I think they add just the right touch!
Enjoy the pics!
