When we were looking to buy our new home one of the features we most desperately wanted was extra space for friends and family to come stay in when they visit. We found that in what appears to be an old hay loft that was converted to a studio. But to say it needed some work would be an understatement.
While we endearingly referred to the condition as gas-station-bathroom-chic, we could see through the condition to what it could be. Immediately we could picture how we would lay out the studio, the integration of natural textures with the natural light, and how even just a fresh coat of paint was going to help to revitalize the space.
“Vision is not seeing things as they are, but as they will be.”
We sat down and made a list of what needed to be done. When we finished making our list it felt overwhelming, there was an incredible amount of work to be done. We decided there was a number of large items that we would contract out like re-roofing, window replacement and siding, but the interior work would be all us. Our next step would be to demo out interior and find our contractors for the shell of the building.
Here goes nothing…
