Future Home of the Maple Corners Fiber Arts Studio

I bought this building today.

The price includes delivery

I still have to prepare the site for it, but I have to figure out exactly what I need to do for that first.



This is the inside, looking to the right from the door.


This is looking to the left. Those cross beams are only about 5 feet off the floor. They were used to prevent the sides from bowing out from the weight of the grain. Did I mention this was a granary? The cross beams will provide stability for the move, then I should be able to remove them once the building is in place.

I am already plotting out a dyeing station over here, a felting station over there, maybe a loft area over part of it for storage. Any other ideas? If you had a 15 x 20 building, what would you do with it?

What a rare treat to design your working environment from the blank slate that you have now in your hot little hands, looking forward to the process of it's becoming.

Oh, good! So glad you got it...

Check with the local government. They may have something to say about where you put it and whether or not you need a permit. =( Sad, but true...

So cool! Congratulations.

How exciting, congratulations! I'd add more windows for natural light and make room for a comfortable chair and maybe an electric tea kettle in one corner for when I want to take a break.

Looking forward to seeing it develop.

Those low cross beams could be mighty handy as drying racks. Maybe you should leave them!

I'm excited TOO to see what you'll do with it! I just love old buildings! Especially those that had some real bygone purpose (like this one) which can be incorporated into your theme.

Oh! How exciting!!! The only suggestion I'd add to Diane's list is a dog bed for your sweetie! (;

Oh what great news, what a lovely find. It will work out wonderfully, I'm sure. You've needed a studio and this little building needs new life - great partnership!
