First Post: Craft/Sewing Room - The Before Pictures
Above you can see that the carpet was installed, as well as the closet and corner shelf doors. I wasn't expecting that he would put a door on the corner cabinets - I had thought it was going to be open shelving. One less thing to keep neat! He started on the cabinets today. All the pot lights are now installed.
The cabinets will have a space in between them for a chair. There will be a countertop that spans the entire length of the cupboards. There is going to be under-cabinet lighting as well. I'm going to put my sewing table under the window. Check out the sewing room inspector in the foreground.
I'm going to ask him to reverse the location of the bottom cabinets, so that I have the drawer cabinet closest to the chair opening. You can see that the upper cabinet has not yet been hung. I can only have one upper here as the bulkhead for the duct work is in the way. He's going to put open shelves there instead of a second upper cabinet.
On this side, you can see that the lower drawers are right next to the chair opening, which is where I want them on both sides.
I haven't been doing any quilting for over a week. I have two tops ready to pin baste and I'm waiting until I have room to set up my tables so that I can clamp the backing, batting and top to it and pin. Right now I don't have room to set up the tables. I don't really want to start anything new as I would really have to dig to get at my stash for my next project. So now we wait. I'm hoping that maybe this weekend I can start putting things away in the cupboards.
