i felt like sharing a few photos of my BIGGEST project, the "art barn" (working title, ha ha). it's coming along, i keep getting distracted from finishing the walls and putting up shelves, because i start makin' stuff.
a "before" shot. the whole project started with a badly leaky roof. you know how the thinking goes, "while i have the guys here, let's do a few extra things"
it was the case of the "hey guys, i have an idea. how about adding a sleeping porch while we're at it?"
"and let's level out the crappy, lumpy cement floor"
i had to park my car in it for the one and only time this garage had ever seen a car, since we've owned the property. that's 22 years!
half of the garage actually had a drive in pit for car repairs, when the original owners filled it, they did a really bad job.
lot's of action that day.
cutest cement truck ever
gotta love a silly concrete guy, right?
all hands on deck
ta da! looking good Jim
these sheets of osb went on the ceiling. do you know how hard it was for me to just roll on white? to resist the urge to jazz 'em up?
here's the exterior as of today. roof is on, with skylights for lot's of natural light. the sleeping porch will be finished off in the late spring. it has to "settle" before we can install the screened wall. and of course we can't paint until the spring.
a few current interior shots. remember it's all a work in progress.
the jar wall, full of old, weird bits and bobs
the beginnings of the boot wall
note the turntable for old timey tunes
so, i added old touristy bead belts to the boot shelves.
still to come-
a giant work bench on castors
various power tools
a cute little wood burning stove
a disco ball
more to follow
