Studio/Cabin Project. Part 2

The weather has taken a turn for the worse this week! but before the mist and rain descended, the extra space was dug out and the decking panels were uprooted, the next steps are to completely take up the decking and then extend the base out into the soil.

The space underneath was filled with the excess soil, which apart from being mostly clay and solid stone unearthed the usual British garden finds, a few clay bricks, a few pieces of old pottery and china, oh and a solid lead pipe! of course.

Studio/Cabin Project. Part 1

Over the next few months I'm going to try and keep everyone up to date with a new small studio cabin that i'm building, you can follow my progress on here. 

The original idea was to have a small outdoor area which I could use as a creative space for painting/art based ideas, however this soon developed into creating a larger and more solid space which would be big enough to work from fully.

The space that is being upheaved for the project is an unused decking outside, which once the top boards are taken up will make a good base. 

I've chosen a cabin built by a local timber merchants who will come and construct the space, all the wood is locally grown from their 500+ hectare estate and sourced here in West Yorkshire.

I'm hoping the space will allow me to focus on areas of my work which I haven't had the space to work on including painting, sculpture and various print projects.

I'll be updating as frequently as I can! The digging has commenced so it won't be long before the next update...
