I wish I may, I wish I might...

Have the sewing room I dream of TONIGHT!  Not really.  I wish is right.  Soon enough, though.

If you've read my previous post about painting over tacky wall paper, then you know my husband and I live in a pretty budget friendly house (that's code for--NO ROOM for anything).  So, a little over a year ago, we started building our dream workshop to house our hobbies.  Brady drew up a big metal building and then we planned to frame off 1/4 of it on the interior to make that my sewing/quilting "studio".  My awesome father-in-law got involved and literally has done more than my husband and I combined.  

The shop is basically done, and Brady has been working on my sewing room for the last 6 months.  

 This was the first picture I took of when we 
were prepping the foundation.  


After our huge delivery of fill dirt--I think it 
was something like 9 truck loads full.



After spreading the fill dirt...


I really don't remember what this step was. 
 Something about keeping moisture in with the plastic...



And then, the magical day when the concrete was poured!
I wish I could go back in time and tell myself we were no
where near close to being done, like I thought we were...


My father-in-law, brother-in-law, and husband worked 
on putting the beams up for the building.

Next week, I'll share pictures of the next step progress.  I will say that from the start of these pictures, through the one above took roughly 6 months.  It would have taken probably days, had we hired a crew of people to come out and do everything for us, but that isn't the route we took.  Even though it's much more time consuming, it really saved us a lot of money.
