Basement Studio Progress

A lot has happened to the basement area of our mountain cabin...which will become my sewing/art studio!  It now has drywall, electricity, and heat.  Charlie and I painted a primer coat on Wednesday until we ran out of both paint and energy, and our family arrived for Thanksgiving.  Besides painting, it will need a ceiling, floor, and light fixtures.  I ordered the bathroom vanity, faucets, cabinet and lights already.

If you want a preview, here is the laundry area just at the base of the stairs.


 We are going to add a utility sink in this area with the furnace.  That will be great for rinsing dyes or cleaning paintbrushes.


Under the stairs will be a closet.


The front room is the whole length of the cabin.  Right now it has my Gammill machine in there, which we have just been working around.


I am looking forward to having these beautiful views when I sew or paint.


You can see the Christmas tree farm across the street from the corner windows.


Here is the door to the bathroom.


The tub is in place, but nothing else.  But walls and a door are good!


After we finish painting, my brother-in-law says he will help us put in the suspended ceiling.  He has done one in his own basement room.


Once we get the sewing room/studio done, we will be making the move to the mountains full time.

And here is your reward for reading to the end...my two precious little turkeys who were here with us for Thanksgiving!


Layla was a good mountain baby, and Charlotte is a great big sister!  We have much to be thankful for.
