We’ve got the windows in and just waiting for trim work now. See the progression here. I’m so thrilled with them and what a difference the light makes in this basement studio. I had natural light from a door to the greenhouse but this is even better. Check out my glorious view of my pond and lake. Can you imagine my great big smile about now? I can’t wait to finish and get my stuff down there and start painting. Still need to do the floors though. For now they will just be cleaned and sealed. Probably for the best, that way I can be wild and crazy with the paint!


It took a trip to town, lunch at Taco John’s and the cost of a new tool for my hubby (a big hammer drill) but we got them in. Just me and him, I kept telling him you get what you pay for in the help department (me)… haha At least he didn’t make me use the sledge hammer. I probably would’ve, but I’d be paying for it today.

Next window please

it’s dark, but they are in!

next morning, a little outside trim work

need some stain or paint but they are in!!!

All this studio business is coming to a halt for a short time though. We picked beans this evening so that means the ol’ canner is coming out in the morning. Hope I’ve got lids. Oh and I picked my first tomatoes today!! Yippee!
