Art Studio Progress and Completion

Here is Ted. Ted is the best. Ted spent his entire summer building us an art studio. This is a picture of Ted before he knew what he was getting into.

This hole is where an old tree stump was that we had to remove and fill in with rock.

Step 1: Foundation

Completed insulated foundation.


Raising of the first wall.

Two

three walls

Ok, we'll just skip to 4 walls, some windows, Tyvek and partial siding.

After building the trusses we put them up.

half the trusses and some plywood for the roofing.
Whew! Finally all of the trusses are up.
Primer paint.


We painted the studio Enchanted Forest, Pacific Pine and the trim is Corn Husk.

Come on in, it is time to play.

Going back in time for a second... dry wall....ugh!

The building took Ted all summer to build, he insulated the "beejebers" out of it with plenty of ventalation. His attention to detail was phenominal and the work space is totally functional. Good Job Ted!!!

OMG I'm freakin' impressed!! Do you guys own your home? I thought for some reason you were renting, but why would you build this beautiful studio on rental property?
Ted...you rock!! I'm really, really impressed and very happy for the both of you :)

Hugs and purrs!
