House Renovation

What has been keeping me busy

I should be weaving. I want to be weaving. I think about it a lot but the truth is......I am not. This time of year is such a busy time. Parties to go to, baking to do and let's not forget shopping for gifts. The thing that has been taking up some of my time, lately, is home renovation. My husband and I recently bought another house. The house looks great on the outside but the inside is another matter entirely. This house will eventually become my weaving studio. I am really excited because I have outgrown my studio at my home. The extra space is going to be wonderful!

Saturday was spent helping my husband trace the wiring. The breaker box door is missing and none of the circuit breakers are labeled. He was in the basement with some gizmo he had rigged up ( he is the real MacGyver!) and my job was to hook up a meter to the outlets and light fixtures and yell down to him when the numbers changed. This took a long time but it is now done. The rest of Saturday was spent in the woods cleaning it up. The former owner used it as his personal landfill and there was a lot down there to deal with. Our boys were a great help and now all that has been hauled away.

The carpet and pad are gone. Now we are working on removing all the staples. Once we get the power turned on I can start washing the walls and painting. I am looking forward to that part.

So now you know what I have been up to lately. I will keep you updated on how this project is going and hopefully post some pictures so you can see.

I know you are working very hard on your new studio!!! You're going to love it! You'll be ready to move looms before you know it!

Can't wait to see how you set up your studio. There's nothing more fun than a nice space that's all yours and, after alot of planning, you set up as your studio!
If you need help, you know where to get it!
