Riverbend Studio – another year of work

At the end of 2013 the rough construction was competed for my studio space on 5 acres of woodland in central Michigan.  See the November & December 2013 achieve for Riverbend – rustic beginnings  and  Riverbend – building the studio [part 1] [part 2] [part 3] [part 4]

2014 has been a year filled with continued work.  

In May steps were built….
steps 1  steps 2

and a contraption for maintaining the lane.

The metal roof was put on…

and a small folding table and a sideboard were added to the living space.

With the addition of vinyl flooring, curtains and rugs…. the inside space was coming together nicely.

Later in the summer came the building of a Murphy bed

and the picture that hung over the fireplace in my parent’s house for 55 years has a new home.

In the spring and fall the overnight temperatures inside the studio can easily drop into the 40’s F…

so one thing was left on the list for comfort = getting a propane heater that would vent to the outside.
