Future studios...


I mentioned yesterday that we cleaned 1/4 of our barn. Admittedly, these photos have zero wow factor- we have a long way to go, but I am thrilled that it's a bit cleaner. Imagine this: smooth concrete floors, tons of light, and bright white walls. This space is our future studio space. We're also planning to build a kitchen of sorts for wine, cider, and beer making.

That little pile of garbage above? It was the end of the day and I got lazy. But check out what it looked like before...


Ahhhhhhh. The irony of this handwritten sign tacked to the wall wasn't lost on this girl.


We can see the floors now! This is where livestock used to be stationed. PRH wants to cut this thing out, but I think it's a fun reminder of how the space was used. Functionally, he's probably right, though. We'll see what happens when we get everything cleared out. 


Still horrifying? A bit, yes. Cleaner than before? YES!


We have one more load of garbage to take to the dump. It's organized as neatly as possible. 


PRH ripped down that particle board wall while I piled crap in the back of the truck. We still have to take out that little cage thing with the striped fabric on the outside. We found tons of metal in the garbage pile, so we piled it all in the cage so we can recycle it. An inspirational quote would be great right now. Oh, wait..."The road to success is always under construction.". Back at it this weekend.

Not horrifying at all. Roseland Green (another cool blog) posts interiors that probably began just as your barn. That black chair looks like it used to be a beauty.

your ability to brush off the skeevies, push up your sleeves and get to work is admirable. what great teachings to your kids!

i'm loving your plans for the barn. one other update you might consider, turn at least one of the horseshoes 180 degrees. Have the ends face up so the luck doesn't "run" out. an old wives tale told to me many years ago.

It certainly kept our barn happy.

I'd love to have my own studio space...the barn is such a perfect idea! Very envious of you. Can't wait to see more photo updates ;) Keep us in the loop!

I'm so excited to follow along your rebuilding of this space!

I see all of its potential too, how wonderful!

(I hope you didn't throw any old doors away! Keep us in mind if you find any to get rid of. Please and thank you!)

Great job so far-looking forward to watching your studios grow. You can get cash for your metal scrap, call around to get the best rates.
