Carriage House Workshop Construction - Day Three

Pin It
I am still amazed at the speed in which this project is progressing. They finished sanding all of the woodwork and filling the holes (which actually is quite labor intensive). There was quite a bit of prep but surprisingly they were able to start spraying and rolling the primer. The studio will be painted sage green and the trim and woodwork is swiss coffee (white) ...  You can see from the photo to the right the carriage door has been removed. They also took down all of the hardware for painting and the new carriage door (which will be the exact same one as the original one but without holes and rotted wood) construction begins tomorrow. The door will let in a lot of "north light" as will the windows. The windows have never opened, but as of today they have been taken out, sanded and hardware (including hinges and locks) will be added soon.
They haven't yet painted the beams in the ceiling - but when it is done, everything will be painted.
I have spent hours looking for lighting. I have ordered six hanging lights which will hang between the beams in the ceiling and they are pictured here. I also have track lighting which will shine on all of the walls to show off the art.
 I am hoping you have had a chance to listen to the "Artists Helping Artists" show today. It was title"Secrets to Creating a Great Art Studio" and I do have to admit, a lot of the research for this show was based on MY interest! The lighting information is really interesting and there are tips on the show for every art studio out there! To listen to the show, click here.
