Home studio & gallery

It’s been on my mind for a while but the ongoing Covid 19 situation has made me think about going ahead with a home studio and gallery. My garage is fairly empty and a conversion would be quite straightforward by splitting it down the middle leaving one half for garden material and the other for an art space. It would involve boarding out with OSB panels which are water resistant, adhesive impregnated boards which have a great rustic appearance. There are lights and electric points already but a sink would be essential. The window is quite small so I would consider putting a large velux in the west facing slopping roof to give extra light. The floor is concrete so that might need a covering as well as it tends to give off quite a bit of dust. Then there is heating so maybe a couple of storage heaters would do the trick but I’m no expect so I’d need to consult with my builder friend.

An initial plan is below. Splitting the space in two would give a messy and clean area. I’d consider putting doors between the two spaces so that they can be separated if necessary. The bottom of the drawing is the front of the garage which currently has 2 wooden doors. So maybe a standard door could be put in there as well to allow easy access.

Given the current situation this is quite an exciting idea for the coming months, particularly as somewhere to put up my final major project of the year 2 fine art degree I’m studying. A bit more head scratching and let’s see how this goes…
