Construction Update-Day 4

4 days into construction and we have 2 walls up!  I actually got to stand in my new quilt room last night after work.  What a feeling!!  I found my mind going every which way planning where things were going to go in there.  Here's a view of my new room.  May not look like much to you, but looks like heaven to me!!
Now everything has not gone as planned.  If you have ever lived through any construction on your home, I know you can relate.  Day 3 we had a "little" mishap and part of our old basement wall collapsed.  It was going to come down eventually, but not quite yet.  Thankfully no one was hurt, including our house.  The workers got everything shored up before they left and assured us that the house was still sound.  But talk about sleeping with one eye open that night!!  WOW!!
Here's a picture of the mess!!

Yikes, right???

Can't wait to come home tonight and see what progress has been made!  I'll keep you all updated!!


  1. You're so lucky to be getting your own real quilt room! I'm still a quilting nomad! I have a pretty good sized house but I just don't have a dedicated area just for me and my quilts. I'm hoping that one of these days I'll be able to rearrange stuff and finally get my own space!

  2. Wow -- a wall collapsed? Yikes... no fun. Oh but your room will be wonderful. I love the cutting table with the bookshelves incorporated into it. Neat idea. Keep posting pictures of your ideas... I may want to steal some!
