A Fast Remodel

We decided that our classroom was way too small for our needs (and for the Quilt Guild), so we set about to remodel it.  Quilts came down and tables, chairs and projects were moved out of the classroom.  The pattern and slat wall was moved and the work began.  On Saturday, March 1, family and friends joined us to clear off the shelves that would be moved.  Fat quarters, bolts of fabric and patterns were all moved in less than 1 hour.

Holding up the wall.
The sheet rock of the classroom wall had been removed previously.  Now it was time for Bob to saw it off the wall and pry it up from the floor.
(Good thing it wasn't permanently glued down.)                                                        

Brian Hermansen and his crew came in to move our shelves for us.     
Time to tip the wall to move to it's new location.

Getting the wall secured in it's new place.          Elliot thinks the hammer gun is too loud!

The new end of our classroom! Another 6 feet.
After a week of hard work from Linda & Bob and all the helping hands (Carolyn & Evan, Amber & Jerry Cox, Rick Fabrizio for the work on the carpet, Michelle Bennett, Randi & Nicholas Weight, Tyler & Janessa Peterson, Nancy & Jim Hutchinson, Lisa & Darren Weight, Brian Hermansen for the work with the cabinets and Angie Hagerman for taking pictures), we were finally able to clean and get everything back in order!
