Knoed Creative has a new home away from home. Located on Ravenswood, our new studio is full of character and O P E N space. Something we have desperately craved. We had a few big DIY projects to complete before it was ready… like a 10-foot work table, 16-foot shelving unit and lighting. [Check out the before and in-progress shots at the bottom.] We spent too many hours at Home Depot, IKEA and Consumers Plumbing Supply… ordering, returning and reordering. It kept us busy and sweaty, but it was worth it! We’re so happy with how it turned out and feel so inspired in this new space. Notice the 2 empty desks? We hope to fill those… someday.
The photo above is our cozy little rooftop deck. Can’t wait to use it when it’s warm out again. Pictured below are the promised before and in-progress shots. The first one is our first look at the space. You can see me in the bottom right thinking about all the potential it has.
This one was taken after they tore down the wooden loft structure from the last crew.
We had them take up the linoleum flooring in the meeting room to bring the cement look back.
New lighting and a fresh coat of paint on the floor! The first thing we moved into our office was a dog bed.
Picking out the least warped planks for our work table at Home Depot.
Staining all the wood for our shelves and table.
This is about 1/4 the amount of the pipe we used.
Putting together and spray painting the pipes.
It wasn’t as easy as we thought.
