This post goes out to all the HGTV-geeks in the house.
And to my wife, Karla, who calls me once a day to ask about the garage/office/studio renovation project from a Central Maine lake she's hiding away at for 2 weeks while listening to loons, reading detective novels, eating homemade relish, hanging out with her best buddy from college, swimming, listening to the rain fall, and wearing sweaters (yes, Texans, sweaters in the summer by choice!).
Amazing what a little insulation and sheetrock can do out of the corner of your eye.
- Spaces beging to form.
- Shadows start to expand.
- Windows begin to create punctuation moments.
- And you begin to daydream about being inside these spaces in a day-to-day manner.
Not sure when this project will be done, but looking at these photos of the 2 ends of my new office/studio-to-be, I can tell that we're well past the tipping point now.
- My ceiling exists, although a little tape/mud/texture will certainly help before I cut in canned lights and paint.
- My walls will actually allow A/C and heat to stay inside.
- It's almost time to begin shifting into set-up-the-baby's-room-in-the-house mode, which makes Karla understandably happy!
- And while there is still much to do in the next 7-10 days, it feels like we're on the final few laps with the checkered flag beginning to be taken out of its sacred holster.
So, Karla, if you're managing to get some Internet access up there on Swan Lake, hopefully this quick post will bring a smile to your face. Almost time to get the house back into shape!
