Studio News!

The time has finally come...WSK is moving out of my house and into a dedicated space. I am so excited!

 On the ranch we have a building called 'the Bunkhouse' where originally men that worked on the ranch lived, dorm style. It is a little red and white block style building and super close to my house- I took this picture last  night from my front lawn.

It has been many years since anyone but mice and junk have lived in the building so I asked if I could take it over and make it into a dye studio. My husband was actually pretty happy (he wants the mountains of yarn and fiber OUT of the house) so I started hauling junk out a few weeks ago.

Today he pressure washed it with bleach (this was SO needed) and removed some of the old cabinets. New windows were put in last week and tomorrow the painters come and will paint all of it- walls, ceilings and floors. Stainless steel tables have been ordered, new ovens picked out, new utility sink, electrician plans to be here in the next few weeks to install new lighting and heaters, contractor hired for storage shelving and new is finally coming together. I figured I better get some 'before' pictures so I can document the transformation. The main front room:

Then down the hallway I have emptied one of the small bedrooms to use for storage.

As you can see it needs a lot of TLC (you should have seen it before I started hauling the junk out- yikes!

I hope to be moved in and up and running by the end of August - but promise to show more progress pictures as we go :)
