In 2008, ready for the start of a new year and new things, my attic studio was finished! I had recently decided to have an attic studio built...working in the kitchen and then having to clean it up to cook just wasn’t cutting it anymore! That was far too inconvenient and not a way to encourage painting. At first, I was going to use the “maid’s” room in the attic which already had walls and closet, but that really was too small. Instead, I used the front half of the attic, giving me a much larger space with windows facing south and west. There's also a small exercise space, with room for doing yoga or whatever routine I'm interested in at the moment! The studio is nice and warm in the winter (I usually only need one of the heating units I installed) and comfortable in the summer. Plus, I get a bird’s eye view of my neighborhood!
The studio looks a little narrow because of the photography, but it's 14' wide and 20' long.
