Readers of my last post will, I’m sure, be waiting with baited breath (haha) for the latest on the preparations for my new studio, so here is an update with photos, taken recently…
Work surfaces and cupboards taking shape in the former hayloft… this is Paul, my handy hubby, doing his stuff (there isn’t much he can’t do really – he’s also a very talented artist photographer). By the way, I did the icky job of vacuuming up all the hundreds of ancient spiders webs before this stage!
below – a view of the precarious stairs – at least they’ve now got a proper handrail!
a view of the village from one of the studio windows.
this door (below) opens into fresh air, it was probably used for loading hay into the room, which is directly above old stables (unused now). Will be nice on those hot summer days I’m anticipating this year!
and finally, a pair of antique chairs in the old stable below caught my eye…
… and an old window also in the former stable below.
It’s going to be a great space! Looking good 🙂
Thanks Rachael, still can’t quite believe it’s for my use!
Well okay, I wasn’t waiting with baited breath, but I’m certainly a little bit envious! What a glorious space. And hello, btw, this is far from my first visit, but I think it’s my first comment.
Hello to you too! and thanks for visiting my blog. It is a great space isnt it? Having started with just a table and easel for several years, then using a utility room (6ft x 7ft) for past 3 years, I do know how fortunate I am. It’s all due to the generosity of the building owner and of my hubby who arranged it all and who as you can tell, has been busy converting the studio for me. Don’t know how long I’ll have it, but am determined to make the most of it while I do! :o)
