Yesterday I had a remodeling company come out to talk to me about adding on to our house. We have been living in limbo for so long- should we add on, should be move. where can I have a studio, should I just get a storefront? This is the 2nd company we have had over to talk about an addition. I don’t want a big house, I prefer character over size. But the reality is we are a family of 5 and my goal is to make this house function better for us. There are things I don’t want to give up, like my screened in porch. I have found that this is my favorite room of the house when the weather is warm. I don’t know how I ever lived without one. Now that the weather has warmed up my friends and I have been hanging out there a lot watching the kiddos play in the backyard. I am looking more at tweeking what we have, and adding a small family room in the back but of course the ideal space for the family room is where my screened porch now sits. So that means a new family room plus a new screend porch…ugh.
Then there is the studio question. We have been tossing around the idea of opening a store in Old Worthington. It would be nice to walk to work. My kids school is within walking distance too. It’s tempting, it would solve some problems and I would have space for people to come in and sew and cut. The best thing is that I could walk away from it at the end of the day instead of having it always there.
But on the flip side, I enjoy working from home. I like to step outside and breathe fresh air every now and then. I like to watch MTV while I sew. I like the freedom.
And then there is this
what better way to spend your breaks than doing this?
And watching the puppies play?
