Summers End

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.

Living/Working Spaces

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.
