I've been working towards a big move...I knew as soon as I became a new mom, I'd need to have my studio back at home (goodbye beautiful big warehouse studio). That wasn't a hard decision, but it was difficult to decide where and how I was going to fit my 1100sq ft studio back into my 950sq ft house. We finally decided to finish a big part of our our basement (without wood paneling and drop ceilings!!!). Once finished we'll have a laundry room, a small bathroom, and I'll have a nice new studio. It's been coming along slowly but surely for the last two months and finally we're getting close... This weekend we mopped up all the drywall dust and poured out the primer. Here are photos before the first coat went up on the walls (with Jay pouring out the paint). This is the month when it all goes down, I have to be totally moved out by the 31st (yikes) so I'll be posting the progress over the next few weeks. Lucky for me my Dad came in from Ann Arbor to help Jay and I. Thanks Papa! Finger crossed we can get it all done in time!
