Studio Construction: Five Days in Five Minutes


Finally having a new studio built on my property. I’m moving out of the small loft above the garage that I’ve worked in for eight years and into a 20×30 foot space so I can create larger paintings, have a designated spot for videos and add a printmaking work station…and maybe teach a few classes.

This video is a time lapse of the construction to date. Its’ a five minute video showing the first five days of construction. There’ll be a cathedral ceiling with skylights; horizontal windows to allow for more usable wall space; in-floor heatting for toasty toes and a garage door with roll-down screen at the front to allow north light in during spring, summer and fall.

I’ve worked in damp basements, tiny lofts, extra bedrooms, industrial rental units but this is the first time I’ve owned a studio designed to fit my needs. Getting excited to move in.

Video is courtesy Quinte Home Solutions the design/build contractors.

    Hi Bob, wondering if you still are travel teaching. I’m Jan Richie from Minnesota. I’m the one who changed your hotel in Minneapolis the last night so you could get to the airport easier. You can write to me at Look forward to hearing from you.

      Hi Jan
      I DO remember you. I remember the changed hotel and how convenient that made my trip to the airport the next day. And I was also impressed with the hotel!! Not the level of hotel I usually stay in when I teach
      Unfortunately, although I still teach throughout Canada, I no longer travel into the work. The cost of a work visa for the U.S. started becoming unreasonably high at around the same time as the requests for teaching were becoming increasingly fewer!LOL So I haven’t renewed my visa in the past few years. Glad to see you’re still painting and thanks for thinking of me. Bob
