Sewing Rm Construction Day 1

I can't believe we are finally starting! In the picture above, you can see my master bedroom balcony that will soon be my sewing rm. Downstairs, the future excercize rm will meet up with the garage wall (next to gate) & my sewing rm upstairs will be 3 ft short of that due to city restrictions on setbacks! To make up for that, the room will stick out 3 ft going the other way (towards us in the pic) for a finished size of 14' deep by 19' wide~ woo hoo!! My current sewing rm is 10x10, and is actually only used for storing fabric and supplies. I am currently in our dining rm and we can't have anyone over for dinner because I have too much stuff to just move it for a few hours. I hope to move into my new sewing rm by the end of the year!

I am so happy for you!! It will be wonderful to have a larger space just your own to sew in, with all your quilting I bet you require alot of space! Keep us posted this is very exciting.

So exciting for you! I can't wait to see the finished sewing room! My sewing area is just a desk across from my ironing board, so I have to fit all my fabric/supplies underneath or on top of the desk. It's really cluttered, but I guess that's good because it helps me keep my fabric in check. :-)

That is exciting! It's nice to know I'm not the only one whose dining room is full of sewing supplies. I'm wondering how I can clear it out before Thanksgiving.

Thanks for visiting!
