Default FINALLY!!! My shedio :)

My white Saltbox was a long time coming but it's here . It's 12x8 with a high peak so the interior seems larger.

This is the start of the foundation prep. DH dug out the grass and poured a pea gravel foundation surrounded by block. It was easy to do and the pea gravel levels nicely.




Then, the shedio guys came in and built this in a day. The thing is, it wasn't built to our specs. It's a Tuff Shed built on the Pro Ranch base but with a seven foot front wall and a five foot rear wall to make it a Saltbox. We spent quite some time at Tuff Shed going over our Drawings and were assured they could do it. We'd upgraded the shingles but when they put the shingles on, they used brown for the ridge (did they think we wouldn't notice?). The window was in the wrong spot - the door couldn't be fully opened without hitting the window box and covering part of the window. And the edge of the roof was supposed to be boxed all around.





It took a while to work things out with the company but two visits later, all was corrected and I'm happy as a clam now . My dutch door opens so I can keep doggies out, if need be. Now it's a matter of getting the interior set up. Lots of work but that's the fun part!

Awesome! How fun! I loved having my studio in a shed out back... sometimes I regret moving it, but I may just move it back one day.

Looks great.
I am thinking of a similar set up for me here, but my husband
now thinks maybe it would be better to build out part of the garage. We'll see.
Have you run the electrical yet?
Are you putting in AC? (I'm thinking you live out in the S.F or S.G. valley,no?

Follow your heart (meaning, make your space where you know you'll be happiest and most creative). It makes all the difference

We haven't run electrical yet. That's the first thing - deciding the layout and where the outlets should be. It's a sticky spot because DH wants to initially run power cords out but I want to go straight for wiring. We've been married long enough for me to know that if I start working off of extension cords, it'll never get properly wired because he'll figure that it works that way so it's a done deal. I feel a standoff in my future . And yes, he knows I want a/c. We're in Santa Clarita (magic mountain, anyone?) and it gets hot here. I don't like hot.

(secretly, I think he's afraid he'll never get me out of there, lol!)

Wow, Karen, that's really great! What a HUGE shed too! Lucky you, and I'm so jealous that you folks in California can get by with gravel underneath. Here in Chicago, we'd be skating in ice covered stones, LOL.

I can't wait to see it all finished. Good on you!

I'm tempted Karen! We were actually out your way several years ago before I 'knew' you. We're bound to meet 1 of these days. Consider this your reminder to come to NY for a visit soon.

What a warm and inviting space. I can just imagine the positive energy that will flow into your beads when you work in such a nice studio. Congratulations!

The cow was painted by Betsy Mclellan http://www.etsy.com/shop/betsymclell...te_desc&page=1
She's a very inspirational cow, isn't she? So much so I'm contemplating a cow wall

Betsy is wonderful to deal with and her work goes quickly so you have to stalk. My cow is one of her originals but she has prints of it in her shop, plus many other cows to pick.

Love your Studio. No longer a shedio.
You now have the best part of being a lampworker and then some.
