My new dyeing area is now finished in our basement/crawl space. The only way to get into our basement is by this little door on the outside of our house. It’s less than 5’ tall and you have to duck to go though as a beam runs right across the opening. We have a big piece of foam stapled to the beam because I can’t count how many times we or friends have hit their heads on that beam! Once inside we have a small area where people 5’5”, like me, can stand so this area works well for my new dyeing space. Can’t believe this kitchen sink and counter that I was so excited to throw in the dump now makes me so happy.
I have hot and cold water and Tim installed a pump to get the water back up to the septic tank. I found an old white board the kids don’t use anymore so used it to cover all the drain pipes to the septic tank and can use to make notes when I’m dye fabric. During our kitchen reno our hot water tank died so I have a nice shiny new tank by my sink. I have lots of storage for my big containers and Tim added a drawer for all my dye powders.
If your wondering where the crawl space area is it’s through this small opening and is all on rock so the ground if very uneven. I didn’t turn that light on as you don’t need to see the mess of boxes back there! Note the foam pad stapled to that beam too :)
Thank you Tim for building this space for me and supporting me with all my crazy hobbies! It was the best birthday present!
