Progress on the Art Studio

I'm excited about the art studio--its coming right along. If you look on the left hand side you'll see a 12' section of stud wall that has no batting. The 12' wall will be removed next spring and an 8' x 12' dormer will be added. There will be a matching 8' x 12' dormer on the right as well.

We haven't quite made the decision yet between building an elevator, or building stairs to the studio. We'll see what happpens in the spring. In the meantime, we have a hole cut in the floor and access the studio with a ladder.

This weekend we insulated the ceiling, walls, and installed vapor barrier. Pictured here is my friend Pam, also an artist--who came to help us install insulation. Burrrrr, it was really cold here in Wisconsin today.

Later, Jon joined us, and the three of us finished the ceiling quickly. Jon stapled one side, Pam the other, and I was in the middle with the wide broom as the deadman, holding the batting up in place. We worked together like a three-piece suit.

Wow! That's a nice big space. It's already really bitter down here in Illinois, so I can imagine what it's like already up in Wisconsin for you. Keep up the good work!
