Construction Report

Several have asked how our new studio is coming, so here is an update:

Half the lights are up (rest go up today) and the walls and ceiling are painted.

yep, lights work!

Heating and air conditioning installed.  Air works, havent filled oil tank (cuz we didnt rob any banks yet…. may need to rob 2 banks cuz we now have 2 oil tanks for 2 separate heating systems)

damn i love these doors!

Ok, but this I DONT love.  The kid who painted is returning tonite or tomorrow nite to sand the frickin BUGS off my paint.  He painted at nite, then left the big garage door open at nite, with the lites on, so they bugs waltzed in and had a dance party on the wet paint.  And stuck there.  Oh so frickin stupid.  NOW you know what gave me SHINGLES!!!  (hmm, maybe I should charge him for the meds.  Nah, Im just cranky about it)

So, hopefully this will be resolved by sat so the same kid can lay our tile floor.  Im sure its too much to hope that the floor would be done by end of next week.  At this point our contractor is frustrated because the floor has to be done to come in and do all the wood trim around windows/doors, baseboard.  And the trim boards that were painted????  you got it…… they are buggy too.   sigh….

On a happy note………………………

we finally have a fully functional shower.  YAY!  AND it has elbow room because Steve installed a hotel shower rod.  Fabulous.  Best 40 bucks I have spent in a long time.  Still have our shower curtain functioning as a door to bathroom.  Because we have to fix the floor before we can install the door.  Wanna see the floor?  Watch your step!

It’s a tri-level.  Makes life interesting.

Ok, Steve is off raking hay, getting it ready to bale this afternoon in 90 degree heat with 90% humidity.  Im staying in the central a/c and going back to quilting!  Gotta work before I get interrupted by electrician and painters.

    Beautiful ! But aren’t “dumb” workers just the worst?? Golly – what ever happened to common sense??

    Hope your shingles go away fast, fast, fast ! Nasty things …..

    Love the fact that you will be warm AND have hot water this winter. Oh, what luxury !

    Wow, things seem (to me) to be moving long and looks very nice. I didn’t realize (or maybe just didn’t remember) that you have been dealing with shingles. Hope you feel better soon.

    Looks GREAT! (Except for the bugs, of course. Kids!)

    Arghh, shingles! So sorry to hear you have to deal with that. Just heard something on t.v. about getting vaccines as an adult due to childhood vaccines wearing off, then they cited the increase of shingles in adults (which is basically a case of the measles).

    As usual, they didn’t explain whether it was worthless or not if you’ve already had the measles or shingles… Worthless t.v. reporting strikes again…

    Anyway, that gorgeous studio will be lifting those spirits to new heights in no time! Enjoy and try to stay comfortable!
