Yes, at my current pace, the studio is scheduled for completion December 30th, 2030. I know I'm slow -- you can quit e-mailing me to remind me.
Since January, I've added a 3.5 ton, through the wall air conditioning unit, removed the old siding and resided the south exterior wall (the patchwork of my addition and the previous owner's original siding was not pleasing to the eye), installed a louvered vent for the exhaust system which will handle electric kiln venting, a spray booth and whatever other crazy ideas I come up with, framed the wall seperating the garage and studio, added about 300 square feet of overhead storage, dropped the ceiling to the bottom of the beams, insulated the ceiling, added 1080 watts of recessed, halogen lighting on three-way switches in four banks of three, ran wall base power and rehung the outside door with a real threshold. Fun.
The studio is an unusable disaster, but I took pictures anyway. As is typical of my laziness, the smaller images link to unprocessed, full size (read -- pretty big) versions. You have been warned.
