Building an Art Studio

So many titles could have been used for this post...."a dream come true" being one of the top choices, but I decided to keep it right to the point.

My Art Studio is officially under construction!

This has certainly been a dream for me for many years, and now it is almost surreal seeing it come to life. I am so grateful for the most supportive husband and family. Thankful for my sister drawing up design specifications based on my "completely not to scale" sketches. Thankful for my father in law's input and calculations that helped us know what we were getting into. And thankful for the contractor that the Lord blessed us with. He has made this so much more than I ever dreamed it could be by going above and beyond on all aspects of design and construction.

Here 's the "before" shot....

breaking ground

Our back yard slopes down a hill so all of the concrete that was poured also included some serious deep and wide footers and retaining wall. Gotta have a firm foundation.

We all placed our hand prints and names in the concrete. It will be covered by flooring but I took pictures and we will know it is there. :)

This one will show. It's on the corner edge of the new extended driveway....under the new carport that the hubby is so excited about. ;-)

Your sister told me about this when I saw her last week. I'm so happy for you! Can't wait to see the finished studio!
