studio50 design HAUS update The new year has already been an intriguing one with weather from frigid temps of -35 to beach weather temps reaching +10, all within a few days!  Through it all the studio has been steadily moving forward.  Taking advantage of this warmer weather, we will be charging ahead with a first floor pour on Tuesday.  Then, Steve will lay the silver board and the radiant floor heating.  Late in the week, we will finish with one last pour of concrete!  We will have some pretty darn amazing level concrete floor pics to share by next Monday! The studio ground levels have all been graphed out from the low spots to the high and everything in between. Yes, Steve constructed this diagram, and no, he doesn't mess around!

Also an exciting plus, we have received our steel roller door and our 2 highly anticipated glass garage doors! Can't wait to put up these beauties...   IMG_00000880_edit   Behind the scenes of all this action, we have been designing some amazing pieces to build and showcase in the design HAUS.  We can hardly stand the wait!   IMG_00000891   In other exciting news... We have opened our online store!
