Conversioning the attic, and new things...

So....things on the shop front are going well...This has been a great month for sales, the Lord has really blessed Sweet Home Boutique. I am in the process of finishing up a large order to a friend in WA, making a dress for my friend to where to some of her speaking engagements, and making my first maternity dresses for a friend from high school....fun, fun, fun!!!

Yesterday I constructed this dress for my sister who loves purple...I shipped it out to her today via...you guessed it...click n ship ( I love that thing)

back

I also got new sizing label's in the mail to put on all of my clothing under my clothing tag...next on the list is care tags that I will put on the side...Handmade clothing is supposed to be hand washed, but I throw all of my things in the washer and dryer....What good are clothes if their not easy to care for and durable :-)





Also on the home front we have been busy, busy, busy....Our new cleaning lady came over today, and I love her love her love....She did good work cleaning, but I love that she puts character over all. One thing that I love about living in a rural town in the south, is that people seem to place a high value on good christian values, and community...more than any other place I have ever lived, I love it here.

The builder finished up day 2 of the attic conversion and I poked up there when he went on lunch break to take some pictures. Our builder is way awesome. He is the same person that built our house in 2005, and put our fence up in the backyard. He does great work!!

This is how the builder is getting up there right now, via, pull down ladder. There is going to be an archway added in the front of the house as you walk in that is going to be a stairway leading upstairs.

This is going to be the future home of Sweet Home Boutique. The window is going to be taken out and a larger one added,  and the boards you see coming toward you on the sides are going to be cut out, and more space is going to be put on the entrance going back there.

This is going to be the end of the greatroom/home school/playroom/chill room..He is going to be putting windows on the side of this wall,  and sky lights throughout the roof...I LOVE natural light!


This is going to be the large hall open room...There is going to be windows on both sides..and that big huge heating and AC system is going to be moved, in fact we are adding a whole new unit to accommodate the extra space.



I will update my blog as the conversion moves along. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to here the sound of a saw and things falling above us....That with the combination of the cleaning lady vacuuming was pure and total bliss!!! Ahh!!!


Until we meet again....


Happy Wednesday!!!!!
