WIP Sewing Room ...

You will know from this post all the tidying and clearing we had to do to empty the loft / sewing room for the arrival of the builders on Monday. Our house is in upheaval but we have brilliant builders and they are really cracking on with it.

This was the room all tidied on Sunday evening:

And yesterday - see the lack of insulation in some areas ...

and no vertical supports ... 

those bolts are new ...

In brief, between the two sets of builders over 15 years who created the original loft room and the extension, they didn't build it properly and worst case scenario - the roof coud have collapsed. Thankfully, this wonderful builder crossed our path at exactly the right time and we've been able to get it fixed. They've worked hard again today:

I cant wait to get to the fun part when we  I get to choose paint colours, furniture placement and rebuilding my sewing space ... can you see a potential design wall here ... I am a lucky girl :)


  1. Great progress builders!

  2. Happy for your sewing room, but even more happy that it will now be safe!

  3. Glad you found a great builder. Bet you can't wait to get to the exciting part of decorating and the wall looks perfect for desgining

    Cheers Pauline

  4. Good thing you got that looked at before it collapsed!! And with all that insulation you will now be as snug as a bug in a rug. :). Very exciting to begin the design process! Have fun!!

  5. What fun! Do you have some colors in mind? I am assuming pink. =)
