I have been meaning to do this for years. That’s how long I’ve been in this space. When we bought this home 4 years ago, it had a beautiful, concrete shell of a space, destined to be mine. We knew *this* was the house when *I* opened the double doors that led to this unfinished space. It would be mine, all mine!! Jump for joy, forget all those other houses we were considering and even the one we made an offer on (thank goodness it had inspection issues that allowed us to escape unscathed). Remodeling was not something I was excited about, but neither was *he*, thank goodness! So here we go!
We had done this before, so we had ideas, but this space was quite a bit bigger. It is 30′ x 15′. I believe my last space was 24′ x 12′, not too shabby either, similar, but different. Peter had the walk-in closet idea, which I had never had before and which I adore! It is designed and decked out for more storage than you can ever imagine. All those UFOs, leftover scraps, things that have just not been taken care of, yet?! Lots of projects in there. I love to pull the pocket door closed and forget what is in there! The single door at the far end leads up the stairs to the garage, so up and out for trash and easy down and in for supplies, no one else has to know about deliveries! The double-doors lead to the family/game/theater/main downstairs area.
Considering I started out sewing for the public, which allowed me to be a stay at home mom and professional volunteer, all the while sewing at the kitchen table, picking up then putting away, to cook dinner for five, to this space still awes me. I am grateful.
Thank you, Sue, my fabric pusher, for pushing me to get this job done… Now on to the next one.
