first snow equals stalled studio construction
After 8 months of proofing architectural drawings and enduring endless county paperwork requirements and delays,
we’ve happily (finally) started actual construction of my new painting studio.
So far we’ve accomplished de-construction, removing the attics and roof above the garage and family room,
and then started construction with laying the 40+foot-long support beams, the 20+foot long floor joists,
and the pressure-treated supports for the back balcony.
It may not sound like much progress, but it’s very exciting to have finally started.
I’m hoping to show you photos as building progresses, although initially they won’t be very glamorous.
The construction is expected to take 3 months, but of course, having to start this late in the year,
we’ve already been stalled by our first snow this season.
I hope you’ll stay tuned as my small studio becomes a big reality,
maybe by this spring.
With large windows and plenty of space, I’ll have room again to make my large-scale paintings
and also for holding classes here in northern Virginia..
But first, we have to get through this icy standstill in northern Virginia.
