This is one reason I have not been keeping up with my daily blog posts. I have been working daily for the past two and a half months on this commercial office building I co-own with my mother. Due to a lengthy series of mishaps with property managers - my daughter and I are taking over the management of this 29 suite, 3 level building. My daughter has had an office in the building for six years. I decided I need a workspace in the building, as well. This space was left trashed by the previous tenant. I have taken on the task of creating a working studio / office in this space. So much to do! It has taken over every moment of my life - awake and most nights, as well.
I shopped around for affordable ways to create custom work space and ultimately decided I could build a sturdy work table base out of 2x4's. I am planning to add a 4 x 8 foot sheet of plywood or MDF or maybe melamine coated particle board on the top of this base. It will serve as a work table, as well as a meeting place. It is counter height and I will be adding counter height bar stools (as shown). I am contemplating doing some small group classes out of this space, thus the dual purpose work surface. The work surface I have at home has cabinets underneath all the way around. It is not possible to sit anywhere. Standing all day really does not work for me, as I have chronic foot pain. I am really excited about this new work table. Notice the wheels!
This smaller attached office measures about 12 x 9 - with a good sized dormer type space. I think this will be suitable for a sewing room. I believe I can custom build (out of 2 x 4's) a sewing table and a large ironing table / design surface. I am planning to build the supports right into the walls by screwing the horizontal pieces right into the wall studs. It will make for a very sturdy work surface, I believe. Stay tuned!
