    It looks doable with some hard work you should be up and running real soon.
    May you always have Love to Share , Health to Spare, and Friends that Care!

    Work steady at it and you will be done before you know it. You are so lucky to be able to have such a great space. With a propane heater you should be able to heat it so you can use it in the winter. I would consider insulation and a dividing wall and good strong locks. Good luck with the work and enjoy.

    Fortunately, I live in the country, so I don't have to worry too much about anyone stealing my things. Here is an updated picture of where I am at right now with the garage. My daughter was "helping". This was taken after 9PM, so she was a wee bit tired of helping her momma.

    As I was unpacking, I came across a tote that I had asked my son to write on so I would know it contained my quilting things. This is what I found. I had a pretty good laugh... considering he wrote "guilt" instead of "quilt" on the side of the container. (He is dyslexic.)

    Awe, what fun! Like being a kid again, and building your own playhouse!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    Great drawing - very insightful stick drawing. I'd keep that lid for a really long time, it would be something sentimental later.
    Enjoy the day, Chickadee_42us

    I think I would have finished the garage before doing the rest. Some insulation between the 2x4's and then some wall board. would make a big difference in the heating problem. Of course that would mean not quilting for a while, smile.

    So Happy for you to have your own space and place. I really like your cabinets and bookshelves. Looks like your off to a running start. I hope all goes well!.... Can't wait to see more pics.

    The Japanese make a wonderfully effecient heat/air unit that will fit most anywhere; my friends have theirs up near the ceiling in their family room. Check this out. Congrats on a space of your own.

    We use a couple of edenpure heaters in our house. We have inefficient wall heaters and our edenpure heaters work better and are much more efficient. They arent hot to the touch and no exposed elements of any kind so they are safe too.
