Day 15.  Most of the work is being done inside right now, fine tuning things like plumbing, ducting, and electrical outlet placement.  Although the changes are smaller and more subtle, it still spells progress!

 Day 10, and all is well!

The framing is done, to define the 3 separate spaces.  This is Kat's studio, looking through the bathroom/mudroom to Bill's workshop

This is going to be where Bill will be spending his time, building and restoring guitars!

Kat enjoys her studio along with Ripley and a little glass of something good on a Friday night!
 No more garage doors!

Day 9, evening:  This is going to be the room in between Bill's shop and my studio.  It will include a handicapped bathroom and a utility room with a sink, counter top, storage and a skylight!  There will be doors to the utility room from both of our spaces.

Framing begins!

Ripley loves to check out the progress every day!

This room sits between our two work spaces

Still looks like a big garage....but not for long!

 Day 8, and the skylights are in, concrete has been poured to cover up the plumbing, and it looks better every day!

Day 6! Windows are cut out and framed, plumbing is in place for inspection tomorrow, and I chose toilets, faucets, etc.  We are very impressed with our architect and contractor, Prescott Renovations.  Tom Reilly and Mike Bevier are a pleasure to work with.  So far, so good!
