Sub-Level 2 progress report
I have been remodeling our basement (sub-level 2) to be my new studio. Sub-level 1 (my current studio) is just too small. I ripped out all of the flashy 70's paneling and hip red carpet out of SL2 over a year ago -- maybe even longer and framed it all in. Then I ran into two problems: time and money. I never seemed to pocess both of them at the same time. Progress of SL2 kinda died. During the past holidays the remodeling gods smiled upon us. Time and money collided and work started again. I was able to get all of the electrical work finished and the drywall hung. Now I'm waiting to get the walls textured. I'm hoping to get everything painted, or at least primed by the end of this week. Then I'll do the floors. It may take longer than I want because the deadlines are back and the "time" part of the equation is gone again (so is the "money"). My wife might end up doing all of the work herself. I think it is because she wants me out of SL1 so she can make it her new sewing room. I'll keep you posted.
The first photo is SL2 during framing.
Second is from last week.
Third is what it might look like if I ever get it done.
