Studio Update

Posted on: April 8th, 2014 by jmbroekman 5 Comments

It’s been a long cold winter

And I realize I haven’t added anything to this so-called blog in a few months. Being studio-less has been, shall we say, a bit challenging. So, I thought I’d post some photos of what’s been going on in and to my humble little studio.

First we had to make a mess, and I mean REALLY BIG MESS.

It is almost an entirely new studio: new rafters, siding, insulation, sheetrock, windows – and 8 more feet of space in the back! It isn’t quite done yet, but now getting really close and exciting. It has been a long haul, but I know when the winds blow next winter I will be toasty warm, and forever grateful to Curtis and Andre for their hard good work, Jenny Scheu for encouraging me to make this big mess, and my mom, who unbeknown to her helped finance it.
