    My DH is Working On My Sewing Loft Space! Yippy!

    Shhhhh....I don't want to announce this too loudly, for fear of disturbing his concentration. He's actually working on the walls and trim details on my sewing/guest room/office space in our loft. I'm giddy with excitement!

    I'm married to a general building contractor and we started building our cabin/cottage on July 1, 2011. The loft was ignored while he has spent time working on other people's houses. (I can't blame him there. We've got to make a living.) I waited patiently and then not so patiently for him to focus on finishing the loft. My sewing stuff has been in bins and boxes that I regularly clean out and move around, trying to find a temporary place for them. It's been depressing to say the least. Now, I'll have finished walls to hang pictures, quilts and shelves, a new closet space, etc. Plus it will look so much nicer...no more plywood! I have loads of pictures and ideas for how I want to store everything...if I can just find them up there...LOL. Finally, a place for everything and everything in it's place! Oh happy joy, joy!

    I’m sure it is going to be delightful when it’s finished. Don’t forget to post photos. Mendocino is one of my favorite places to visit when I go to California...I was there last October after the Santa Rosa fires.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    You sound full of excitement & you should be. It will be so nice to get a space for all of your sewing things. When our DD left home I took over her bedroom & have loved every minute of it. I was sewing on the dining room table before that & would always have to be moving it in & out whenever we had someone come over for a meal. I'm so happy for you!!!

    You’re going to love it! When I removed the bed from our guest room to make it a sewing room only I was over the moon, there is nothing better than having a dedicated sewing room. Enjoy!

    Oh..uhemmm...well...it won't be JUST a sewing room. Right now it is also an office and a guest quarters, as well as a place for my violin repair hobby. Things will continue in that fashion, except the space will (hopefully, fingers crossed,) be finished and decorated properly.
