I am currently between studio spaces. I was above the Adams County Arts Council. Then I decided to renovate the garage for my embroidery shop. The garage also has a second floor loft in which I decided to renovate that into my new studio. With a few yard sale and craigslist listings and a number of trips to the garbage, I clean out the loft.
I decided instead of putting up dry wall and boxing everything in, I would try to incorporate shelves between the studs to have in the wall shelves to try and utilize space. I started by stapling up rafter vents against the roof and then insulate. Then I will put up the dry wall, which will still box it in, but with the insulation against the roof on that side will provide a warm storage.
Now, I had to deal with the electric. There were 3 outlets on the ceiling rafters which there were shop lights plugged into. I took the shop lights and put them in the shop for additional lighting. I have 5 ceiling lights from the old shop I will use for the studio. But there wasn't any wall outlets. So, I had to install some. There is an old wall fan, the motor was burned out of it for years, I cut the electric cable going to that to use for the wall outlets since it was already there and had plenty of wiring.
Next I will put the insulation up on the walls with the outlets. So stay tuned :)
