Well, boys & girls we are still in a holding pattern for getting back to the old home renovation. Seems like the doctors are planning to extract a few more dollars from this guy before they let me get back on a ladder. In other words I have two more months of surgeries and recuperation time. So to keep from figuratively withering on the blog vine, I thought I’d dust off the last gallery renovation and let you see the process. Again, I did this one mainly by myself – except for the iron ceiling. Total time on the renovation was 9 months.
Iron ceiling? Yep it will be revealed soon enough.
I’ll also address the ceiling as well. I’m converting this from a studio space into retail, so we’re going to need to add overhead lighting that is adjustable. The round window is a 4′ stained glass window of my father. I’ll post a story of it around father’s day.
We’ll start in the front room – where the studio used to be – and we’ll get rid of the bathroom / changing area. I built a new bathroom in the office area so this one can go. Up goes some plastic sheeting to try and keep the dust down.
The room is gone which will add some natural light in this space. Testing the paint color for this section of the room. Yep, it’s yellow – not mustard yellow, but still pretty bright. I painted a large area to test the colors in different lighting conditions. I didn’t think a little test patch of color on the wall would give me enough to visualize.
So far, so good. Everything’s working out and nobody got hurt.
