This is the sunroom which will become my studio. I'm not particularly good at mentally envisioning space, so I'm not sure just how much of my current studio is going to fit in the space. DH appropriated about 20sf to enlarge the half bath to a 3/4 bath, and I did pitch a minor hissy fit even though I understand having the shower will be a great thing. I'd love to talk him into adding one of those small Kohler Guilford farmhouse sinks, but the price is prohibitive. We've got a re-use, buy used budget, which is great.... If only wishes were horses! I'm finding the most difficult thing for me is paying attention to how much work I can do - this poor body only has so much it can do before I have a crash and spend a couple of days dealing with serious pain. I spent 6 to 7 days per week for a while because I didn't want DH to be there by himself all the time (and I do have to say he's been a real trooper getting things done). But after getting sick for a week, I had to re-think my strategy. Now I'm thinking maybe 4 days a week, but not consecutive, although if the sun shines and the air temperature is moderate I still have a couple of windows to go! I do miss spending time sewing, but Amy has taught me some jewelry making techniques so on nights when we aren't passed out in our recliners I'm making some things I hope to sell on Etsy. Hope you've all been enjoying this amazing fall we've been blessed with!
