so we knocked down a wall on the second floor to convert the old tiny home office and our old bedroom into one large home office.

The carpenters are done and out of there as of yesterday; now I have to order new desks and carpeting. And clean up spackle dust and paint. and paint again (have to prime bare drywall, you know).

DH keeps talking about how the room would fit a long-arm machine. I think he's trying to make me crazy. It won't fit a LA machine once I get 2 huge desks in there! And I don't OWN a long-arm machine, either!!

But that room would make a great sewing room instead of an office. Too bad we're running 2 businesses out of the house and we NEED an office!!!
