Spring clean week is over and it feels so GREAT! I am glad to be back and I have lots to update you all on!
Lets start today with the workshop clean-up. I know your like “you just built it, how can it need to be cleaned?”. WELL, it just does. A giant empty space doesn’t take long to fill up and be disorganized. We are still finishing BUILDING the shop, and the interior still doesn’t have shelves or work tables.
Here is what the downstairs looked like a few days ago:
And, WHY YES, those are saw blades on the floor. SUPER safe for children.
We were getting too much furniture in.…too many projects going on …WAY too many tools…and it was never set up properly after the build.
Here it is after the clean up:
The downstairs will remain “rough”. No real finishing except work tables and storage shelves will eventually go up.The downstairs is where all the furniture repair and sanding will take place…not to mention where we will be starting our custom made pieces (wink, wink, nod, nod, woot, woot– our first piece is in the works!).
We even have a little area for Ella (on the right) & a makeshift table for me to use for now (back left)…
Nathan has several LARGE pieces of equipment that are already in there, but his REDICULOUS collection of tools has yet to be transfered from our basement. So, this is pretty much as cleaned out as it gets.
Ok, so that was STEP ONE. Make it usable!! I love working in this space!!!!! We even have the jonny jump up for Lincoln– he loves it!
The upstairs is going to be totally different. There is different flooring and it will store all of the “to be finished” and “completed” pieces of 508 greatness! The upstairs will be fantastical. I am just saying. It too is clean, but still mucho work to go.
