We are aiming to largely be out of my current studio by the end of this weekend, so I'm afraid both the blog and the easel mayÂ be neglected for the next week or so. I do have a few pictures to post of the progress on my studio though. The builders had a bit of a rough start in the beginning slogging around in the mud due to theÂ pretty heavy rain we had just prior to their arrival. ButÂ once theÂ ground started to firm up, things moved much quicker. Â Here's the way it came along over the weekend:
By Monday I was able to take a peek inside. Here is the framing for the high windows on the wall of my painting area:
One of the builders, Gene, after a hard day's work. Gene felt my picture needed a center of interest, so he kindly obliged:
This is the portico side as it looked this morning. This side faces the back porch. This area will be my future office area. There is some loft space for storageÂ in the portico above the door.
When I looked outside this A.M. they had pulled out the siding, roofing, doors and windows. Not sure how far they'll get with all of that, but based on the progress so far,Â I imagine things will look very different by evening's end.
