    Craft/Sewing Room: Update # 3 (Framing)

    Hi:

    Below are pictures of the work that took place today - getting the framing for the room completed. These pictures are an update to my previous posts on this room build:

    This is the wall, beside the opening for the new door to the laundy/stroage room, that will have a closet. You can see the footprint of the closet on the floor. There will be an opening of 48" with bi-fold doors. The angled part will have corner shelving.

    I'm excited to finally see this started! More to follow as work continues.

    No worries, the washer and dryer are both moving to the right of the wash tub; the tub stays where it is. (One less thing to worry about!)

    Too bad, you must miss the space terribly! I admit that I had to take stock of where I plan on living for the next 5+ years before moving forward with this reno. I bought the house new in 2007 and had originally planned to live in it until September 2012 (when my youngest starts university). I was planning on moving closer to downtown at that time; currently I live in the 'burbs. Since 2007, my oldest decided to go to school out of town as her program was not offered in Ottawa (thus incurring a 4 year committment to campus housing that was not previously budgeted for), and the cost of housing in the downtown core is crazy. For $400,000 I can get a 2 bedroom condo in a highrise with monthly condo fees of $500 and annual property taxes approaching $5,000. This doesn't work for me at this stage in my life: right now I have too much stuff to fit into a 2 bedroom condo; I have a dog and need a yard, I love to garden, my daughter lives with me in the summers and during holidays, my son is with me occassionally, I've got to get my kids through university, and I'm only 45! Maybe I'll feel differently when I'm 60, but a condo doesn't suit my lifestyle at this time.

    So I had to decide what I wanted to do before making this reno investment, and I thought long and hard about it. So I'm going to be in the 'burbs for at least the next 4 years. Even though my new space is not finished yet, I am already dreading the day when I have to give it up.

    Reno will be nice to have for no matter how long you will be there.

    Great pictures! In my life time, we (1st husband & 2nd husband) have done a lot of remodel on our homes. No one knows the hard work, and the joy of completion, like someone who has been there. Very anxious to see your completed project. Keep up the good work.

    Add a chute???

    Before you keep going on this wonderful craft room,,,can you add a laundry chute from upstairs so that you don't have to carry the dirty laundry all downstairs?? We added a hole in a bathroom cupboard in an upstairs bathroom going to the basement. We actually used to hand up extra food (bags of chips) when we needed them upstairs.

    In this house we have a chute in the wall of one room going into the laundry room...I LOVE IT!!!
