|The dry spot on the gravel is where my car was a moment before. That's the kitchen window you can see and the shed, aka 'man-cave', on the left.|
The door you can see on the right wall of the above photo is our back door at the moment, it leads into our kitchen. It will end up being an internal door.
You can see that same door to the right in the picture above. And you can see into the laundry on the left. The wall between the freezer and laundry will be partially demolished so the laundry facilities will end up being in my studio - but to compensate I'll get an extra long bench that I can dye and paint on. There will be a door put in the laundry to the back of the house and our clothes line will be out back instead of on our deck like it is now. It'll be great to be able to utilise the area behind the house too - it's difficult to access so sorely neglected at present.
The photo above is taken as I stood in the doorway leading into the kitchen. That wall in the right will stay there to divide the bathroom off from my studio and there will be another wall at the same angle that open door is now. That corner where there is a lonesome cupboard door leaning is where my fabric cupboard is going to go. So excited!
Above you can see where our floor steps down to a platform. This is where our front door will be - on the step between the two kiddies. At the right, the floor will be extended out to the front of the platform. The outside wall will then run along the side of the platform, basically making our front door in a bit of an alcove.
So the floor you can see in this picture above will extend out to the pole, gaining about another metre and a half of floor. There will be glass french doors here and a window above them to maximise natural light. And because I can't have any windows in the wall between my studio and Hubby's shed, we're going to put in some solar tubes, which are essentially skylights but insulated so they don't lose heat. Where the picture is hanging is where my design wall will be.
Sorry if you find my descriptions a bit confusing, but hopefully you get the picture. And if all goes to plan, soon I'll be able to update you with 'progress' shots!
