In continuation of showing you around our new place I have something today that will float some boats, I am sure. I have a studio all to myself!
Our new house is actually smaller than our old house so we knew that we would not have a spare room for all of my crafting tat. I even tried to give lots away to make it seem smaller but there was not a room in our new plan for it. My late father designed the new house and he didn't have a sewing machine!
My cousin laid a concrete pad ready to build an insulated log cabin way back in April.
My brother-in-law, Andy and I built it in the sweltering heat of May lockdown. It became so hot that we actually had to stop laying the felt on the roof because it it was just too hot to kneel on.
I painted it, had some carpet fitted and then dumped everything in there while we moved our house contents.
Everyday in August, I emptied another box until I found a home for all of my things. The wooden wall blocks have insulation built inside them and the floor is also insulated so that things will not get damp.
Andy added electrics so that everything could get up and running.
Our old kitchen table makes a fabulous cutting table which I can only blame myself for if it is always full! I used to moan at everyone that the kitchen table was never empty enough for me to lay out fabric.
I have gradually added more pictures and things that make me happy.
There are little places for everything.
It is a wonderful place to hide for an hour or so. I have never wanted a flash car, or a luxury holiday - give me a shed with all my stuff in any day.
Of course, if you are truly creative it mostly looks more like this...
Thanks for dropping in. Have a good weekend. Jo xxx
