This week I am into the final stages of negotiations re selecting a builder for the renovations...the process has taken sometime but has been very thorough and I am very thankful that I decided to go with Stoð to help with the process....their professionalism has made the whole procedure pretty painless.
Hopefully by next week the renovations will be underway, so expect plenty of pics documenting the process during the next few months.
Of course the procrastinator in me has left a few things to the last minute and I have been busy over the weekend emptying the middle floor of a few remaining items such as bookcases, shelving and desks left by the Post Office and have had to shuffle the storage space around in the basement...my studio looks like a whirlwind has gone through it and I need to get this sorted so it is once again a pleasant usable space.
So here are some before pics of what the middle floor currently looks like.
My main concern at the moment is my 150 year old plan drawer that is stuck on the middle floor as it is too wide to get through the doorways down stairs to the studio.
So I am back to pulling it apart...I can almost hear it groaning in pain...noooo!
A view of the back room where I have managed to remove the top off the plan drawers...yay, just need to remove the back...gently gently and then hopefully we can maneuver it to the studio!
