My new Sewing Room

After being on a caravan holiday in Carterton for the last couple of weeks, we towed our caravan back to our temporary lodgings in Otaki, stopping off in Levin to check out our new home.  Things are really moving forward quickly, with the walls and roof trusses now erected.  There was no sign of the builders on our property while we were there, and we found them busily working on another villa.  Stepping onto the concrete floor, we wandered through each room, trying to see how it would look when completed.  Here I am contemplating the spare bedroom, which will eventually become my new sewing room.  No doubt an office as well, as we will need somewhere to put the filing cabinet, printers and all those sorts of things.

I’ll have to wait till all the walls are up and check on the position of the power points before I decide exactly where I will be placing my sewing cabinet, and the best wall for the shelving.  And as we have sold off the beds and furniture from our former house, I rather like the idea of purchasing a bed settee (sofa).  Then we will have a bed for the  occasional visitor and I will be able to curl up on the sofa with a quilty magazine.  Just hope we can fit all these things in – plus my fabrics, books and a whole heap of UFOs!

Jenny, I now have my machine, and laptop, and now also Hugh's laptop in one room, and there are 3 double plugs on 3 walls, and 2 double on 4th. I use a Belkin power surge with 8 plug points, but the best thing is I can plug in anywhere.windows on 3 walls, so I have very good lighting, hope you can plan for power points and windows that will be what is best for your quilting!!!. Exciting days, watching each stage of the building. Cheers from Jean

How exciting to see the progress. I'll bet you can't wait to start putting your stamp on the place. :-)

Wow it's getting exciting, won't be long now till you are in! Get more power points than you think you'll need, I don't think you can ever have too many.

We talked about putting a bed in the sewing room of our new house too. But I kept thinking about all the things I'd toss and pile onto it, and how I'd be walking around it all the time. So, we opted for a dedicated sewing room (with a laptop computer on a small desk) and when company comes, we inflate a double mattress for the room. I am really happy I made this choice.
