    Progress of Sewing Studio

    Well I have had my studio now for a little over a year. I have power running out to it now. I have also added a few more ladies out there that call it home. I can't wait to get it finished with paneling and ceiling. I have gone back and forth on what I want to do with the floor..I know I am crazy, but now I want a part of it to be carpeted. Eventually I will be adding more windows, a sliding glass door and built in around the door and where my mother in law's machine is. It is a work in progress that is slow going at times, especially now that I am working on my degree to become a Physician Assistant and with my son being in school. But it is all mine and I love the peace and quiet out there...Well sometimes, I do have a stereo set up to play my mp3 player hehe.

    ​Nice that you are getting the space of your dreams. I would decide on the flooring first because I am lazy. I wouldn't want to have to move everything out and then back in again after the flooring goes down.

    Very nice, just hang in there and before you know it, you'll be all set up. Good luck getting the degree! It's hard to go to school when you have children, but it's doable if you are determined enough. Quilting will be a great relaxation.

    No matter what it looks like, there is a satisfaction knowing that it's all yours. Congratulations on a YOUR space.

    Nice space. Slow and steady wins the race. Take your time and plan carefully. Hmmm....carpet i the sewing space?? Hard to keep clean, but if you need it for sound deadening and insulative qualities then I guess it makes sense. Good luck with school, that's more important.

    Wow, 20 miles, heck that is almost making it into the town of Brooksville lol. ( I live on the county line near Innverness) I am amazed that being a city girl, I think that 20 miles is right around the corner now. I actually go to South University Online, for the next 2 years, then it is off to Tampa daily to go through my clinical and work on my masters for another 27 months...hmmm typing it makes it seem like i am going to be in school forever! Yes, it will be more then worth it =) and Hello back Neighbor!

    I was considering cork flooring to begin with. However the cost is more then I would like. Then the more I thought about it the more I liked the carpet idea, one for the insulation, there is about 8 inches between the floor and the ground, but mostly for the padding...I found out the hard way that standing on hard floor for 6 hours doing FMQ is heck to pay the next day. As for the cleaning, that I am not to worried about, I already vacuum out there at least 4 times a week, and knock on wood I haven't stepped on any pins in the year I have had it. ( now watch tomorrow when I go out there, guess what is going to happen rofl) And thank you for the words of encouragement =)

    I like the carpet in my sewing room. It is much warmer and easier on my legs when standing and cutting.

    The floor of my LAQ room is concrete, can't get much harder. So I put 1" thick clip-together mats from Harbor Freight. They're 24" sq. the LA castors fit just outside the mat, so it sits on the concrete. It's not easy to get the dust off the mats, so when the room is all back together (undergoing some construction), I'll put a space rug over the mat.

    Happy to see you have your own space/studio. Have to agree with Tartan though. I would have wanted the flooring down before moving all the heavy stuff on top. Enjoy! Good luck with school!
