Now the building is finally beginning to look like something. I really tried not to have any preconceived notions of what it would look like, or especially what it would be like inside. Planning things on paper is not the same as seeing them in person. The building is 24' x 40', with the clean stuff to be upstairs ( machine quilting, offfice, quilt storage), and the messy stuff will be taught downstairs (painting, dyeing, printing) . That ladder at the front of the building was my only way in or out until a week before the building was completely done. I think that it was just a ploy to keep me out of the way.
