Spacious new studio built onto Danielle's home

Danielle has a beautiful new studio! Her husband Bob was the general contractor and lead carpenter. Planning began in May 2012, and she moved in early in 2013. It’s a wonderful space, with lots of storage, a 23-foot-long painting shelf for looking at work, north light, and even a mountain view from the window over the sink–very nice when washing brushes at the end of a long day.

Danielle Shelley's new studio is to the left of the garage. The large north windows are visible.

Danielle took about a thousand photos during the construction, which Bob boiled down to 27 for a Flickr slideshow for anyone who's interested.
