I thought I would take the opportunity to post images of my studio renovation project. The first photographs are the before images. A garage that was in poor shape to say the least and a workable but not opportune studio.
The garage was without windows and the door when closed was not fully sealed so the space was often extremely dusty and grimy. It was also dark and cluttered due to poorly constructed overhead storage. As you can tell from these photos, the walls were only partly covered with drywall and nothing really matched.
The decision was to open the space up by removing the loft storage and by installing two large windows.
Drywall was hung on all four walls with the raw beams of the ceiling left exposed to give the space a clean yet rustic feel.
Drywall was hung, a laminate floor installed as well as overhead and spot lighting. Its absolutely beautiful!
I knew things would be well done, when I spoke with the contractor and he mentioned his own stone carvings. These photos were taken right after I started moving back in. I have moved my flat file and a few other items in since. I decided to also remove the motor from the press and its wheel is now intact and printing beautifully. The project will be fully complete once glass is placed within the doors. And have I mentioned I am counting the days until my semester break?
