Studio Reaches Next Level of “One Day It Will Be Ready”

Today Sergio and I worked all day (again) on getting things in their places. My Indian woodblocks are now hanging on their appointed wooden shipping palettes, fabrics are hanging on their hangers in the corner, and the kitchen has its first countertop over the washing machine and dishwasher; the butcher block-topped island has all its dishes/pots/cutlery stowed in the garage cabinets that it tops. And the new faucet is in. Actually two faucets. And I unwrapped almost all the plates/glasses etc that weren't unwrapped and put them in a huge chrome shelf unit that we bought at a kitchen equipment store. I have stored all the china and crystal that my Southern upbringing requires and my mother is happy in heaven. I've vacuumed and mopped,with my yellow janitorial bucket on wheels which works great. And Sergio and I put our heads together and came up with a way to store all the artwork by building a whole storage "closet" around the hoist. It solves a lot of problems because it shields the hoist, using basically unusable space around it and gives another wall behind the sitting area in the studio. And space for all these works I'm going to create when all this renovation is over. Keep your fingers crossed that there's something still cooking under the hood after two months of non stop on -the -rock- pile moving
And I begin to have joy that all this relentless steady work will yield light at the end of its tunnel.
And once again,hooray for Sergio and his many skills and personal stamina and cheerfulness It is needless to say again,but I will anyway, how grateful I am to have had him on this adventure. He is a remarkable companion in creativity and outlook.
Here are some pictures of the more organized sections of the studio and the hoist area all cleared up of the mountain of cardboard boxes (the stacks shown are each 5' tall) and mopped and ready for its new function. And one of our work tables as we still soldier on!
