    Clean Slate, Coming Along

    I've finally finished the graph drawing of the new room! This floor plan and furniture set up will cater to my sewing/mobility needs and also provide my DD with her own little sewing space that's all her own. I'll have a small storage room with plenty of bookshelves to hold all of my sewing, quilting, knitting and crocheting patterns, along with my scrapbooking table, an ironing board and plenty of space for the totes that hold my non-quilting fabrics. I'll have plenty of wall space for hanging shelves for added space and pegboards for plenty of tools, rulers and quilting stencils. I can't wait!

    Tomorrow my brother is coming over to help rip up the old floor, run all of the new wiring for plenty of outlets, and finish installing the new windows. Then DH and I will get to insulating the ceiling and outer walls. Then, in just about a week or so, we'll be ready to reinforce the floor joists, install the subflooring, hang the drywall, spackle, and sand. Then it's all cosmetic! We'll be painting and installing the new floors. I can't wait!! We're hoping, hesitantly, to be finishing up between Mother's Day and Memorial Day. I'll have just enough time to set the new room in order before we start working on the old sewing room/new master bedroom.

    DH and I have always planned on doing this whole house remodel, and we did plan to start a few years back, but then I ended up needing my surgeries and my back/leg/hip issues ensued. Now I'm finding out that I can climb the stairs just fine in the mornings, but not in the evenings. So, we decided to start the remodel now so that our bedroom can be downstairs and the sewing room upstairs (I sew in the mornings).

    Love your sewing room layout. Congrtulations on the remodel.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I took drafting in college and you did an excellent job with your design layout. Before I get shelving put in my small storage space next to my apt, I need to draw out a plan like yours for shelving. Hope all goes well and quickly.

    Looks great. If I new how to draft like you, maybe my room would look better though it functions well. You sure have a lot of talent to do all those crafts. I only do quilting and some cross stitching. Used to build doll houses from kits but don't have enough time for that now that I'm retired.

    Your plans look great. Good luck on meeting your deadline. I have similar issues about getting over tired in the afternoon and early evening. Hope you get everything done just like you want it and enjoy every moment in there.
