Ok, as you know I love Where Women Create magazine. I would love to have my own space to create like that. I have always done my creating in my dining room and everyone holds it against me that we don't have dinners at the dining room table because it's full of fabric and buttons.
Well that is going to change, hopefully sooner rather than later. There is a room above our garage and that is going to be my studio! Right now the stairs are in the garage.
We have been wracking our brains trying to figure out how to get them in the house. First we were going to incorporate them into the laundry room which is just right inside the house by the stairs now. Then we were going to have them come out in the dining room, but the latest which I am loving is having them come out in the house where my pantry is right now by the kitchen.
It's a great space. Very roomy. I am a bit worried about light, so we are going to add dormers to the wall on the left for two more windows. That is what will slow this project down, I'm not sure when we'll be ready to do that.
Dormer wall. There are lots of outlets for all of our sewing machines.
This is the pantry where the stairs will go up, it is right over the stairs going to the basement. It's a mess isn't it? We will still make our laundry room bigger, so I can move the pantry storage in there.
The door in the hallway that is closed is the pantry. So the plan is to open the wall up on the left side of that door so there will be an open stairway and railing. I hope we can, I would love that openess. To the left is the dining room where I now sew.
If you have any bright ideas, I'll take them!
