It was rainy and cooler yesterday when they applied the one-coat epoxy on the floor so a longer drying time was needed. They will return tomorrow and either apply another coat since I had 2 gallons of left over paint or go ahead and move the stuff into the storage room, whichever I decide. But I'm eager to get it up and functioning and not sure if another coat is really needed. There is a storage room that runs the width of the basement behind the wall in this photo and much of what will be kept will go in there. If I was a planner and organizer I would measure the wall and floor space against the items I'll be moving in...but I'm neither a planner or organizer so I'll move it in and then decide.
For basic functioning I'll need an anti-fatigue mat to stand on and some daylight bulbs...I will be scouring the 2nd hand stores and craigslist for a comfortable chair and rugs. All the comments sharing in my excitement for this space to work in are very much appreciated.
