The current status of the studio

I shared final week about how I must fully redo a few of the electrical wiring within the studio and the way it could require eradicating a few of the drywall to entry {the electrical} wires. If you happen to missed it, you’ll be able to examine it right here.

Nicely, the wiring is completed. It does not look fairly, but it surely does not must be fairly to work correctly. I needed to take away plenty of drywall on two separate partitions to maneuver the retailers which ended up within the improper locations once I modified my plans from doing my cupboards to utilizing IKEA cupboards. And after eradicating the drywall, I needed to reduce by a few of the spray foam insulation to take away the previous containers, put the brand new containers in, and run the brand new wires between the brand new containers.

But it surely’s achieved, and about half of the areas the place I needed to dig out the froth insulation at the moment are stuffed in with new canned spray foam insulation. Nevertheless, I did not purchase sufficient of the canned spray foam insulation. I assumed it could go additional than it did, so I want to purchase a number of extra cans to complete it off.

Like I mentioned, it does not look fairly, however that will not make a distinction as soon as the surplus spray foam insulation is reduce away to be flush with the entrance edges of the studs and the brand new drywall is put in.

To protect as a lot of the unique foam insulation as potential, I ran the brand new wires by the channels I had reduce to take away the unique wires. It sounds ridiculous, and if that wall is opened by another person sooner or later they usually see this mess, they will most likely surprise if the one that ran these wires was drunk at work. 😀

If I have been placing the containers and working electrical wires by naked partitions earlier than the froth insulation was sprayed, every part would look good and tidy like this…

However since I did not need to reduce extra channels by the insulation and likewise did not need to drill extra new holes within the studs, my wiring ended up trying extra like this. 😀

It is not fairly, and it took a bit of extra electrical wire to try this, however no less than I managed to protect as a lot of my unique foam insulation as potential.

The wall within the “workplace” space of ​​the room behind my desk additionally appears to be like like a large number and hasn’t but been stuffed in with the spray foam.

This wall now has 4 exits that line up with one another horizontally. If I might do that wiring on empty partitions of pre-foam insulation, it could be good and neat like this…

However you’ll be able to see this loopy, nonsensical path I made with the brand new wires by the unique channels and thru the unique holes within the pins. 😀

However no less than I managed to protect many of the unique insulation and did not must drill new holes within the joists. And it is achieved.

Now the problem is discovering somebody to put in drywall. I shared my frustration with discovering a handyman to do small jobs a number of weeks in the past, and issues have not improved. I’ve tried three extra individuals since then. One appeared to be actually up to the mark and able to tackle the job. The explanation it did not work out was my fault, as a result of I could not determine precisely how I needed to deal with {the electrical} outlet scenario. When he got here to see the challenge and provides me a quote, I used to be nonetheless planning on shifting all these pictures up on the partitions. That concept did not appear proper to me, so I instructed him to attend till I might decide and never depart the day open for me. So once I lastly made up my thoughts, he scheduled another person for the day he deliberate to try this job. (And, to be clear, I supplied to pay him for the time he took to come back to my home, take a look at the work, and provides me an estimate. He declined.)

So I contacted one other whose spouse handles his schedule. I spoke to her on the cellphone and she or he mentioned she would communicate to her husband and name me again in 5 minutes. That was three days in the past and I by no means heard from him once more.

After which a 3rd particular person got here and regarded on the work. He appeared very nice and instructed me he would textual content me with an estimate. I by no means heard of him. I texted him asking if he had a worth for me, and my cellphone exhibits he learn my message about 4 minutes after I despatched it, however he by no means responded.

So I don’t know when this shall be accomplished. I nearly gave up on ending this room on our 10 12 months anniversary at our home (which is August seventeenth I feel). I am simply not going to do the drywall myself. I swore to myself a number of years in the past that I’d by no means drywall once more, and I’ve no plans to alter my thoughts about it. I am going to wait two months for another person earlier than I take into consideration doing it myself. So issues are on maintain till I discover a dependable drywall particular person.

In different happier information, my Spoonflower cloth arrived, and I adore it! (If you happen to missed how I’ll use this cloth, you’ll be able to see it right here.)

I used to be so curious to see the way it in comparison with the wallpaper so I took a roll of the wallpaper and laid it over the material. The wallpaper is on the left and the material on the best. That is a great mixture!

You would possibly say the wallpaper colours are just a bit extra vibrant, however I feel they will work completely collectively.

The distinction is most seen in these purple flowers. The wallpaper on the left is extra vibrant than the material on the best. However seeing because the wallpaper and cloth are going to be on reverse sides of the room, I feel they will work completely collectively.
