Just a quick update…the WALL IS DOWN! It is so much better already. The painters primed that dark icky brown, and even with just a few lightbulbs down there it is much improved. Stay tuned for further improvements…
Here’s a view of the colors and the gap at the other end of the studio….
And primed….just covering that dark helps so much! Final color will be a pale warm yellow or pale peach:
Next, the electrician will order the lights (nine 2-bulb fixtures in a 3×3 grid, flanking the beam that holds up the house!–the beam will be painted the color of the walls) and finish the wiring. We added a dedicated outlet for the iron, a phone jack plus another for the fax machine (there wasn’t a single phone jack anywhere in the basement! Needed one to run my office down there!), plus the co-ax for the cable TV (well, DirectTV). Then John will patch up the drywall and Jeff and company will paint. We’re gonna skip drywall on the ceiling (kaCHING $$) for now and just spraypaint it with primer). Then paint the walls. Then I will paint the floor (Sea Turtle green the color is called…think grass green), THEN I can move furniture and unpack….. and oh yeah, John’s going to make me design wall / closet doors all along the long no-window wall…… WOOT!
