Art Studio Rebuilding

The story begins after the flooding receded. The moldy walls and semi-rotted plywood remained.

Demolition began with the low-hanging areas. That way it's easier to fool yourself into thinking this is going to be a piece of cake.

Now that's what I'm talking about! Away with all the sheetrock, plywood, and the joists too! The studio is actually two rooms turned into one; the back part is an addition, which was (of course) not at the same level as the other room.

New joists and blocking installed. The miter saw got a workout, and I had some help from the International Team.

New plywood subfloor, what a remarkable improvement over no floor! The glass block windows were installed over the prior few months.

The hardwood flooring begins...

...and is completed, in early 2007. Hooray!

All insulated. Notice all that new wood on the walls? Corrective framing had to be added; the walls were all out of plumb. A new door, exhaust fan, and trim have also been added for further amusement.

New 3/4" plywood walls in place, filled, jointed, and painted. (This way I can attach things to the wall anywhere, without hunting for a stud.) Two finished walls and a floor: I call it the Corner of Normalcy as I now move on to other post-flood areas.
