One of my requirements when we started house hunting in Virginia in 2007 was to find a house that would have a space that I could claim as my studio to make my dichroic glass jewelry. We found a Georgian style house with two outbuildings.
One of them was referred to as a guest house on the listing. The space was never finished and one simple word on the listing would have made the state of this building more clear – potential.
We turned a third of this building into my studio and started to call it the Corgi Cottage in honor of our two corgis Nigel and Pippen.
The space is great. After working for two years in the basement in our old house in Grafton, WI, I’m really enjoying working above ground!
