The studio is ready for its final inspection. I still lack trim around the windows and the floor will get paved in stone, but it’s as done as it will be for now.
I’ll start getting it set up on Monday and getting some work made. Finally.
It looks great. I’m happy with how it feels. I’ll be posting some photos of the finished space soon.

Process shots the studio. This is what has been consuming all my time recently.
I started this building 10 years ago. It has function as a barn and a materials shed. The plan has always been to make it a studio…AND NOW THAT IS FINALLY HAPPENING.
The wiring and insulation are done. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish sheeting and cladding the inside today.
This will be my studio for the next few years and ultimately will become the gallery when we have the resources to build the big studio.
A special thanks to all the hands that have helped me with this vision. You know who you are. I love you dearly.
