Big progress with the studio

My studio has been a work in progress for a while. I have been using the garage for its new purpose for a long time now, but it has been a dark and gloomy place.

But this week, there was a big step forward. The old garage doors have gone. They were beautifully made wooden ones, but as the opening is nice and wide, they were very heavy. They had sagged on their hinges.

That meant that on the rare occasions I opened the doors, it was very difficult to lift them enough to move them. And there was usually a howling gale coming in over the top of the door. And if the wind was coming from the north on a rainy day, the puddle went about a third of the way across the floor.

So something had to be done. After a lot of thought, I’ve gone for single garage doors, with windows in the top, and windows down the side. Light is flooding in, and it is actually warm now. As this is side of the house faces north, that light is the ideal sort for a studio.

Once the lads have finished sealing round the outside, I will be emptying the greenhouse into tubs to go across the ramp in front of the windows, which will cheer the view up considerably. Assuming my carefully selected windproof plants can settle down, so fingers crossed there.

And then there is a list of things to sort out before the place is how I want it. A sink needs to go in, I need some curtains for when I’m in there after dark…

But I’m well on my way now!
