We have a hellish week behind us with different teams of technical workers finishing the technical installations in our new studio. Having workers in the house in never easy, but in our case this is aggravated by the fact that we have to keep fifteen dogs at bay that don't take kindly to unknown men drilling and moving things around.
When the electricians left, the airco guys arrived. We had two strong units installed, since this glass encased room will easily reach 60C in summer.
We had the ugly tubes connecting the inside units with the motors brough up through the wooden ceiling, across the room under the eaves and down again through the ceiling outside the house where the motors are hidden by the bamboo. It took a team of three men ten hours to achieve this, by they did an outstanding job.
And now is our turn to move tons of stuff from the small studio to the new one. It will take us a while...
The lamps we used have been waiting in the attic several years to start their second life. They were old street lamps in the city of Kütahya. City workers were changing them for ugly new ones. We asked and got eight of them for free!
We stripped them of layers of paint and grime. Painted white and with new shades, they give the room a lovely fin-de-siecle winter garden atmosphere.
As we said, it will take some time to get all this organized, but eventually we will and show you the results.
To be continued...
