Shhh...I'm thinking...

"Julie is easily distracted whilst sitting amongst friends."  So my elementary school teachers said on their reports...


I really need to concentrate.


I really need to focus.




But...I'd love to hear your ideas...


Because I'm working on the design plan for my new shop!


Housed in a classic 1919 Craftsman bungalow which my mom and I rescued, moved....and are currently restoring...the new shop will have a main floor, a loft floor (think "Soho Artist's Loft"...not church choir loft), and a full walk-out basement to the garden.  I need to get the design plan done for the drafter asap...and your suggestions are welcome!  (Ooh...I have to go.  "The This Old House Hour" season premiere is just starting!)


: )

ps The house came with all of its pretty red windows. And guess what...10 years or so ago, I was blessed with an entire matching set of windows (in their frames..with their ropes and weights!) from a bungalow near the Arboretum in Seattle. They were being placed by the curb JUST as I passed whilst taking a shortcut home from the university. Hopefully, they will come in handy for the expansion!


pps I'm linking this to post to Julia's Hooked on Fridays Blog Party... because I'm hooked on planning...and decorating. How about you?

WOW Julie it sounds like your new shop is going to be gorgeous! If the floors are wood but in bad shape, I'm all for the painted white floor look...it's pretty and much less expensive than having the hardwood refinished :)

Oh please just redo it as it is meant to be! I would be so happy in a Bungalow! Seems they didn't build them here in NC! No idea why but they are my dream home! I may move west for one! I cannot wait to see what you do. I love the red windows!! Cool you have more to expand with!!
Hugs, Lisa

I think the beauty of the bungalow is flexibility in a human scaled package. It's the flexibility that will keep them standing through changes in styles, tastes, and tasks.
