I really want my own studio space now.
It feels very frustrating at times to be crammed on one table with my easel to work and feel creative at. Although I am grateful to have a table and an easel, but I actually want a quaint space where I can escape to at any time of the day or night.
So given that myself and my boys have moved into a double story townhouse (which is real cute) I can only think of using either the little shed in the backyard or a space in the double garage.
The little shed out the back gets very good light albeit could do with one or two more windows, but it needs a good renovation to keep it water tight, better flooring, power, lighting, heating, cooling etc. It could also be a bit bigger if I’m honest.
Or I have our double garage space. At the moment this is fairly full with stuff to throw out and reorganise and my car of course. But I thought can I install a wall to section the studio off from the car space and possibly install a window in the roller door, (I doubt that). I do have power in there for heating, cooling, lighting etc. Ideally I would like to work with the roller door up as the light is good but my pooch is my shadow and he would possibly run off.
Has anyone converted their garage into a space whilst still being able to park the car inside? I’d love to see your photo’s and hear any ideas please.
