    Final modifications to studio, submitted to builder!

    Thank you for all the suggestions to my original layout plan for my upcoming studio. I made several revisions, and the plan was delivered to the builder yesterday! We'll get a final bid in a couple of weeks, and I hope to break ground in about a month, yippee!

    This plan doesn't show the design wall, but there is one along the left wall, in the area above the Armoire. It will be 8'x8'.

    All the windows are on the north and east sides. Also, I plan to build a portable ironing surface for the work island, as well as having the smaller one between sewing machines.

    Oh you might want to put in a utility sink in the bathroom. In case you decide to dye or treat bleeding fabric.

    The hardest part is when its finished and you have to go to work! Like quilt, quilt, sew, sew and best of all keeping it clean for the next project which starts in 10 minutes!

    You are one lucky quilter. This is going to be so awesome! It is probably the best well planned studio I've seen! Hope you put locks on the doors (on the inside!) so you can disappear forever!

    How nice to be able to plan your sewing room, right from an empty shell! Lucky You!
    I didn't look at your earlier drawing, but here's some thoughts, late as they may be!

    * if you're planning to use it as an utility sink ... you might want a larger room to allow for space to work, and set things to the side as you work.
    * you mentioned your design wall was above the armoire ... when using, you may prefer to not have the armoire in the way, for easy access for placing of blocks or assembled sections of a quilt ... or even a whole quilt.
    * you can't go wrong with a larger design wall! Mine is 10 ft x 7ft and I've never regretted it, as I can have more than one project on at a time and have even had fully assembled quilts on, til they were quilted. I do have the full 8 ft to the floor, but kept the wall above the plugs, to save fitting around them.
    * indeed, add an easy chair or small couch to get comfy in, when doing hand sewing that takes time!

    Good Luck ... and have FUN with the process!

    Be sure to include wiring for overhead lighting and plenty of wall outlets. The older I get the more light i need.
    How many amp electrical service panel are you considering?
    Can't wait to see finished studio.

    You did a really great job planning this. I love to plan sewing and other rooms, and there is nothing I would change.

    Fabulous plan! You have obviously figured everything out to suit your needs, and don't need any advice (at least not from me.) Just enjoy!!
