Guess what is happening today in the new studio…….carpet!!
Yesterday we picked up the carpeting. It was supposed to take between 7 and 10 days to get here from the warehouse but it only took 3 days! You are looking at 624 square feet of carpet. The width is 12 feet and we decided to have it installed professionally as there will be 2 seams. It is jute backed and will be glued down. We moved out everything but the cutting table as it won’t fit through the door…..Builder Bob still has his computer and TV in OUR room.
Then the floor had to be scrubbed which meant cleaning a section, letting it dry and then moving the table and carpet to the other side. The reason the carpet is in here is to keep it at room temperature so it is ready to be installed. I don’t remember if I have said anything….the new furnace is doing a great job of keeping my room nice and comfy. The wheels on the cutting table were filthy and I don’t think they had ever been cleaned….I mean ever! The other night we rolled the table over the carpet sample and yuck….there was dirt all over it. Builder Bob placed a wood box under the end of the table so 2 wheels were off the floor and I put a pan under them, sprayed with de-greaser and then scrubbed them with hot water until clean. Then we repeated this for the other 2 wheels.
I have had so much fun moving my cutting table around the room and trying to decide where it will go. Last night I put it in front of the windows turned the other way and I may try that. As I said before, it will be a while before Builder Bob builds me a permanent table for my sewing machine as I want to make sure where I want it. Right now I will have fun moving it around. I am also bringing down my big desk and TV and I think it will go in the left corner by that pole. There is a possibility (pretty good) that the table will have to be cut down a little. Thank goodness I have Builder Bob!! See the towel on the bottom of the cutting table? That is to keep Builder Bob’s foot prints off of the table.
So sometime this morning I’ll have new carpet, I guess it will only take a couple hours to install but…..Builder Bob said I won’t be able to haul stuff in for 24 hours. Darn.I can’t wait to fill this beautiful room up with all of my sewing machines, fabric and other goodies!
