Moving Furniture Is Hard Work

I’ve been moving furniture since Monday. (See the December 3 post below)

However, I haven’t been doing any heavy lifting yet. I’m making scale drawings of all the essential items for the sewing room and moving them around on my scale plan drawing. But it does not seem as if I have enough room to fit everything in. I’m thinking of moving all the stuff to a new room, or even expanding to two more rooms. I may have to ask for your help when all the pieces are ready for viewing.
Perhaps I’ll run a contest for the best plan. Do you want to play? Tune in later.

I arrange furniture like I quilt, "IT JUST GOES THERE." If you can have 2 rooms, can we remove any walls?

There is only one short wall we can remove, all the rest are bearing walls. I had not thought about removing a wall. It really opens up possibilities.

I knew someone with fresh eyes would see things I didn't. Great!

Yippee! I hope you are not too tired from all the real hard work you are doing on your new house.

Give me a day or two to put up all the parts and the basic rules.

Duh! What are the two aqua squares?

The two aqua squares are skylights. I forgot to explain that.

I would love to play, but I am not very good at this sort of thing. My daughter is really good at it, but she never gets time for the computer. I will be watching with interest!

You can do most of the arranging on paper. You need a computer printer to print out the floor plan and the little furnishing and fixture pieces. Then you need scissors to cut out the individual furnishing and fixtures so you can move them by hand on the plan. You can stick them down with glue or tape. Then, take a photo or scan of the finished arrangement. After that, send your final plan by e-mail. Almost anyone can play.

I'll be putting up all the parts in a day or so and announce that the contest is open.

I just designed my studio, so I am fresh at it. I took a course at QuiltUniversity that was good. The instructor and all the students gave me lots of food for thought.

This is so cool. Very efficient, very logical.

What a delightful project. What software are you using?

My thought would be to get some big tall cupboards or put up a wall of shelves and simplify the number of pieces of furniture you have. Do you use all the sewing machines? Do they all need to be out on tables? What a big job!

Good point, Jenni.

No, all the machines do not have to be out on display. I do think I will need a new cupboard to store things hidden away.

I plan to sell or loan some of the machines. Or, if I give a quilting class at the local community center I can bring machines for students to use.
