The block mason has finished the foundation of the new studio and also closed in what used to the be the garage door. But wait... what's wrong with this picture (besides the fact that the garage is a mess)? The lawn mower is still in the garage!!! Yep, I forgot to back it out before the block mason got started; and he didn't notice it as he began closing it in! I'll figure a way to get it out (I just hope I remember to do that before I frame in the rest of the garage)!
I guess I've not really posted anything about my new studio. I'm building a 20x40 addition off the back of the house/garage. The studio will function as a natural light studio, as well as a flash studio. It's going to be great; and I can't wait until I get it done! Hopefully this summer!
Besides the addition, we're closing in what's left of the garage (about 21' x 21'). This will function as a reception area, my office/workstation, as well as a gallery/theatre-proofing room! When I get it finished, you will all be invited to my Open House!!
Here's another shot of the contruction. This is from the back of the house facing south. That's part of my land in the background, and Dogwood Hills Golf Course behind the tree line. What you see here is my golf ball pasture! This is were we grow golf balls - at least it seems that way. Golfers often slice into the pasture while trying to reach hole #2!
Anyhow, we hope to start framing on the weekend of April 13th - so wish us luck!!!
