There is light, we finally have power back on at home. It was a tough few days, the humidity and sleeping were the worst for me, but all in all we just had a lot of clean up and no major damage. It is funny the things that you miss, the iron. I tried to keep busy and cut out fabric, but it usually needs to be ironed before, so I did a little planning and some new design ideas.
Busy the next few days, getting ready for teaching and all, funny it seems the storm kind of ended summer early.
In doing some research for a new shed in our back yard, I found some unique design ideas. I wanted something interesting that would be functional as well as add to the landscape. There are many local places that do the traditional barn or colonial type sheds. I have always had a modern esthetic, so, as my family knew already, I could not find anything I liked. So I started planning something the boys could build. I came across a company site and I love their little “studio” type sheds.
These prefab sheds are environmentally friendly and can be finished inside.

Since I am designing my own I can customize it for my use and I can use found/reclaimed materials, to keep cost down. It is going to be for storage, but with the right windows and location in the yard, I could totally work on design in these little buildings.
Now I just need few more sales to meet my little studio budget. I will be opening my on line store again in September, with some great handmade gift items for the fall/holiday season.
