I bought insulation and began installing it. It wasn't too difficult and it didn't take very long to do as well. I started in the afternoon and after a couple of hours I had most of it done. After the kiddos went to bed I finished the rest of the wall studs.
Now, with the walls insulated, oh, and the rise above the the windows, I just have to wait until my semi-co-worker-helper has some free time to do the ceiling insulation, and start the paneling.
In the meantime, I was thinking about flooring. I can't really afford much and I didn't want to really do alot to it. Then, I remembered seeing painted cement floors on Pinterest. So, I went looking for some. See my sewing room ideas board for a few painted cement floors, as well as other ideas I found for my sewing/craft room. I liked a couple of the ideas I found so I decided on a color scheme and layout.
The topcoat color will be a very light grey (Paint only has the grey color so you'll have to use your imagination a little). I like the bight blue color and I think it will go well with my red pendant lights and white walls and ceiling. I chose white to brighten things up a little, of course, and a darker grey for depth. I think I will go with the top configuration. I like the randomness of it. The bottom one is also an option but I couldn't find a stripe configuration that I liked. So random colored squares it is! Hope I like it.
On Monday I can clean the floor and prep it for paint, then over the weekend I can put on the first and maybe second coat of paint. Then I have to wait about 7 days for the paint to cure. After that I will start buying ceiling insulation and paneling.
Once the inside is absolutely completed I can paint the squares. Well, I guess that all depends on when I can get my co-worker to help me. I might be able to finish the floor then finish the walls and ceiling.
Finally, the most important part---moving in, organizing and decorating!
Waiting is not easy to do.
