Reader Dale Lockwood sent us some photos of his recently completed studio. “Here are five photos of the woodland studio that I built for my wife. She enjoys working with her granddaughter on fun projects, and this 12 ft. x 16 ft. custom-built studio is just perfect for one-on-one activities.”

“The sturdy structure rests on three 16-ft. 6 x 6 pressure-treated timbers that run the length of the studio. The double-doors in front allow large projects to be built within and then carried outside for display. The siding is T1-11 plywood with two coats of exterior Sherwin-Williams paint. The three screened sliding windows face the nearby lake while the two windows on the opposite side of the building face the woods.”

“The cozy interior features a candelabra for lighting as well as a loft for extra storage. I also added three redwood window boxes, cantilevered entry steps, outside lighting, a sailboat weather vane and a wood-chip pathway. Thank you for allowing me to show you my handiwork.”
