Meanwhile..on the homefront

We may have been taking a vacation, but our builder and his crews were hard at work on our new studio.

When we got home, this is what we found.


The painting is done except for some touchups. The lights are all in place, the power is ON, & the Mitsubishi heat pump system is functional, so the room is nice & comfy. (I’m sure the guys appreciate this, since it’s really pretty cold right now.)


Here’s a good shot of the driveway entrance, along with my framed storage closet. I’ll store my display bags in here.

My husband was especially pleased to see that the landscaping was finished and the bushes are in place. I don’t know how much grass will actually grow before spring, but at least the mud is covered with hay, so maybe we wont be tracking as much of it inside.

We couldn’t be happier with how it’s looking and I’m really starting to get excited about moving my stuff in there and resuming work on my new design, which I haven’t touched since my mother-in-law took sick in early November. (Gosh, has it been that long?)
So…stay tuned for more pics and narrative about our wonderful cruise. Now that I’m just about caught up on orders and correspondence I should be able to resume work on those posts real soon!
