Lora and I had such a good time! If you're not already familiar with her work, click here to go check out her website. As you can see, she is an amazing photographer!
I hope you enjoyed this little visual tour of the studio and the making of a 100% local, seasonal arrangement.
AND....... just to keep it real, below are a few process shots of what it took to create this beautiful studio, starting with what the building looked like when we we bought our house, BEFORE we did a massive renovation. It has been a lot of work, but here is the living proof that hard work really pays off.
BEFORE: No windows, tilting sideways, and filled with all manner of totally nasty junk.
My dad came all the way out from Massachusetts to help us renovate the studio! What can I say, he's a great dad. Below, you can see him and Eli (my husband) putting on the new roof:
All framed out, and proud dad on ladder after putting on the exterior trim:
Drywall, windows, doors and paint, yippee!
Well, ok, I guess we had a little fun while working too....
Awesome light fixtures, sink and cabinet all found at Second Use (go there!)
And then came the shelving, organizing, etc! Suffice to say, it was a lot of work, but well worth it. And then there's the garden, which is a whole other story, and will have to be saved for another day!
