Studs and Noggins


Do I have your attention? Yes?

A little update on my studio, which is progressing nicely. Yesterday MONT put in extra noggins just in case I wanted to put shelves up on the walls. He also put extra timber around the windows so there's plenty of support for curtain brackets and rods.


It may not look too good as it is...but once all the plaster and weatherboards go on, you won't see it of course.


But apart from giving the walls extra support...


...it's a great way to put some timber, we had lying around, to good use


Here's the other end of the room. This is where there'll be a full wall of cupboards. On the other side, MONT's lined the walls with chip board so he can install a lot of shelves for all of his work things

That's what I like... a win-win

  2. Good thinking with the extra noggins! (love that word) It must be exciting seeing it coming to life. Decorating will be the best part :)

    1. Sarah, it's a great word isn't it? It's really fun watching it coming together and thinking and planning about how the interior will look

  3. Such a great idea to add the extra noggins at this time. I'll be doing that around the windows and certain spots for the new place as well. Saves so much pain at a later date :) xx

    1. Anna I can't stand it when you go to put up curtain rails or a picture and you can't find a stud where you want it! I like things to be "solid"!
