Very modern

 I have not done much building, I have been looking at various designs for the build, I now have a clearer idea on how I will build this space.
I do want black shiny internal doors, with white door trims, here is the first coat, once dry I will sand it down and give the door a second final coat.

I still do not know what or who will be inside this project, I have loads of ideas, part of me thinks I have some beautiful stuff and should stick with them, and then I start thinking of ultra modern, is it a home or a shop, library or art gallery. Which will match my creative side.

 I am thinking the back wall in this pink with a sparkly overcoat, this is in the bottom large room. It would be much easier if I have a building to make and then decide on rooms. This is building has started the wrong way around.
I am going with the big studio windows for both floors, with a small walk way on ground floor and use my railings, I still like the idea of a terrace garden on the top floor.

Back to Google, you know me things might change.

Some thing new

 Working with the items I already have, I thought it would be nice to build something, my 1st thoughts was to create a gate house, and use some of the lovely items from my grand house, you know, move mother out to her own space, away from the wife.
I had a good sizes base board with groves set in for my starting point, once sorted I could cut it to correct size, I added a few walls, much bigger than 1st planned, but a really nice space, an apartment came to mind, going off in a totally different direction, but I played.
 Hubby cut the bottom walls to match the angle of the top wall, this is getting very modern, I watch to many Grand Designs. But I liked doing some thing different.
 Inside two levels, with a door at the back to gain entrance, and stairs in the larger space.This smaller side could be an entrance space, office or small kitchen. I can swap the door at this stage and have it going into the larger space and do a different type of stairs, these are just here to gain ideas.
 So my thinking is, two rooms on the lower floor, a bedroom and bathroom on the upper floor, and in the right hand corner an outside garden. I can swap the top sides over so the wall will be bricked, and I have spare bricks for the exposed back wall.
With a flat roof, and a sloping front, which I will have as large glass panels, very much like a loft conversion.
I will not decide who can live here until I have built it, I could have some one with love of antiques and use items from Somerset House, or I could go ultra modern. But I can wait until it is built. I require a couple of longer panels for the upper floor and the roof.

But I need to research and get the look right for the build, but it's a very good start.

My shop and kitchen has been place on the top shelf of bookcase and sits just under here.
