I use my unfinished basement as a studio for drawing and relief printmaking, a passion to which I have recently returned. The space is large, with high ceilings, but poor lighting. I have added some lighting, some work tables, and a shelving unit for storage. I want to add more lighting, flat files for storing my papers (some of which are large), walls to partition the space and display pieces as I finish them, drying racks for my prints, and more surface work space to accommodate messy projects. I would also like to add some cabinets for storage and a large sink for cleaning up so that I don't have to run upstairs every time I need to wash my hands (which is often when I'm working with pastels). There is a rough-in for a bathroom, which is in the middle of one side of the basement and would help with installing a work sink, but there are no walls partitioning the space. The good news is that it's a blank slate for doing whatever I want; the bad news is that I really don't know where to begin. Any advice would be welcome.
