Sneak peak

I have a new toy. But....I'm only going to show you this much of her at the moment. A proper introduction will be made soon.
She's actually been here for a little while but her new space wasn't ready. You see...her frame is longer than Penelope's and it wouldn't fit in my studio so she needed a new room of her own.

On the day of delivery the only thing visible that gave a hint of the future space was the 2 partial walls of 2 x 4 studs. Hubs has spent countless hours running the electrical, putting up the walls and installing the trim.  He actually rewired most of the basement so that this room would be on it's own separate circuit and so the three way switches would work correctly when entering from the connecting areas. He recently finished all the construction so all that was left was painting and moving in.  This is one wall that backs to the stairs.
He decided to not put up the wide bead board (much easier and prettier than drywall) on the 2 outside walls since the required studs would have made the already snug space that much tighter.  I'll hang pretty quilts over those areas later.
On the other side of this wall is his model train area.
The painting is done and I've moved all the longarm related items from the upstairs studio to here.  We still need to re-level the frame (it got moved around a bit during construction) and then I can take some pictures of the final room result and introduce my new baby. 

Stay tuned.
