    Congratulations!
    Wonderful electrician you have there, and TRUST ME! You do not have too many electrical outlet boxes .... I have never been in a home where there were too many.
    I am very excited for you!

    I am envious of the hardwood floors. I have a great quilt room/studio as I like to call it. But would like to take the carpet out and put in hardwood.

    My husband is an Electrician. I always go wild with the outlets anywhere I can. The "hardwood" is really laminent, but it is really easy care. I love it. We have real hardwood in the rest of the house. I love them too.

    Wow, how much fun is that! You are going to have a HUGE space! Please keep posting pictures as it progresses. It is so fun to see the changes. Your head must be swimming with all the planning! :)

    Great going getting the extra electricity. That is so important. My hubby put in extra circuits into my room so that my iron wouldn't make my lights flicker! One idea that I had, was to have him put a light switch at the doorway that operates the one receptacle where my iron plugs in. When I leave the room, it's easy to remember whether I turned off the iron.

    So happy for you!

    oh, that will be just wonderful for you. there can never be a room that's too big - you'll always fill to capacity! and there are no way too many outlets. you'll be able to move your machine and iron and task lights around whenever you need to wherever you want to.

    we'll be waiting to see great quilts coming out of that room. :D

    Athomesewing I loved the idea about the iron switch. I told the Hubs about it last night and he said it was too late for that option. He would have loved it though cause he is always going into my sewing room and turning off my iron even though it is an auto off.
