Well, I mentioned to my hyperactive husband that I would like to renovate my studio. I returned home to find my studio empty, all my supplies crammed into the unfinished part of our basement and some sheetrock removed from the wall near my stairwell.
I do not have many before photos because I did not expect such rapid destruction. The studio space had a low (7 foot ) drop ceiling. The space was a bit cut up with a half wall on one side of the stairwell. The light fixtures were florescent with a combination of 4000 and 5000 kelvin tubes.
The plan is to make the space clean and industrial looking. The goal is a contemporary workspace minus any unnecessary distractions.
The demolition began. The drop ceiling, the carpet, the lighting fixtures, one sidewall of the stairwell and some of the two by fours that held the sheetrock are gone. We had a professional look at the project to help determine what is structural support and what is not.
