studio progress...

Well just a little as we have been getting a lot of rain.
The windows above
I purchased last week for the studio. They came out of an old Church here in Florida.. I was so excited as I wanted to put them somehow high up atop . but so far does not look like they will work. Maybe I can hang them?
rainy Friday..all day..
But this afternoon the sun came out & we were able to get part of the roof up! There will be a tin roof. The floor will be concrete  I am looking into how to stain or do something to the floor. Everything will be painted white I think. I am open for suggestions always. Keep in mind working with material avail. here on the farm.. some leftovers are just fine with me. I love leftovers. keep you posted as we progress.
I think I will give her a name.. any thoughts?

Ooooh, how exciting! I love illiteration so what immediately comes to mind is to name her something like Violet Verbena, or Viola, Victoria, etc. No matter what you name her, no doubt she'll be a real beauty! Looking forward to seeing more progress pictures:)

A little bad weather won't hurt, it is all going to fall into place perfectly;) Laura you are so use to things not always going as planned, but this studio is going to make up for everything!

see you soon my friend

Hey my Sweet... great progress! I can't wait to see more, I think you need to see the space more before a name comes to you. She needs to show some personality first.
Blessings today

Looks like you are progressing. I do love those wonderful arched windows. I would have loved to put something like that into my studio but hubby said it was a pain to put in arched windows, so mine is square. We finally got our roof finished, and we are about to put in the door and window hopefully tomorrow. I have plywood floors made of recycled signs so I'm painting my floors with Behr Porch and Patio paint. It's tintable to any color they have. A gallon was $25 at Home Depot and it's going to be enough to do my 12x12 floor with a little left over. It's water clean up and it dries pretty quick too. You might try painting your concrete? It's a cheap and easy option. There is a lot of info on doing it all over the web and it's easily customizable. Anyway. Just a suggestion. Can't wait to see BOTH our studio's done. :)
