In My Studio at Last!!!

Phew, at long last I'm able to use my studio!! Hooray!!! Still some bits left to do, but they can wait a while whilst I play 'catch-up' (not to be confused with Ketchup! :-)
Electricity supply to the mains hasn't been connected yet but its in the pipeline so to speak, so an external extension lead with appropriate safety cut off box will suffice for now :-)
My mass of art materials are now being sifted through; papers, prints and boards are now living comfortably in their new home - an A0 plan chest that was donated to me :-) Pastels, paints, brushes etc are being sorted into two categories one being items that are frequently used - these will reside in the studio, & two, less frequently used things will find themselves suitably homed in storage units within our converted attic. As you can imagine Richard has wasted no time in utilizing the dining room table ..................................... for his laptop!!! Cheeky monkey!!!

Project Build cont..

Well we've been busy here (well at least some of us have :-) with the weather getting warmer it was more like working in a greenhouse than a workshop!

My dad, Fred, took it all in his stride though and said that he was really enjoying himself (quite convincingly actually :-) Completing the insulating in just a couple of days.

Then it was my turn to get to work with wallpaper then emulsion & hey presto its really starting to take shape. The wooden boards (to give weight baring strength to the floor) and floor covering have arrived today so off we go again this evening with saws, drills & lots of cooling drinks!
