One of the huge selling points when we purchased our home was the studio space that came with it. Tyson is a freelance Illustrator and Designer and we knew he would be working from home. We needed a space that would be functional for him and not in the main part of the house so that he could get work done and the kids could still be… well, kids; noisy and rambunctious. The house that we ended up choosing has a three car garage and the former owners had wisely converted the vaulted ceilings (in the garage?) into a finished space. It was a perfect fit for our family!
However, because it is a space off the main house, it has fallen to the bottom of the list in terms of putting our unique thumb prints on it. That is until, last fall. It was time to create a space that functions well and is inspiring to work out of. The man spends A LOT of time in there.
Since it’s a three car garage, there is a room over each bay. We planned to use the three sections and create three specific work areas:
The Hub: Tyson’s desk and main work area.
The Lounge: a recording space, standing work station and meeting area.
The Workroom: a space to spread out, work on a project and get a little messy.
We are getting close to finishing the studio and I’m thrilled to get to share all the details with you here. To keep you from drowning in an overload of photos and text, I’m going to break it up into a couple of different posts.
It has been a lot of work and a lot of fun to create a space that inspires the whimsical art of Pixelgarden Studio. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
