Flame & Stone Needs a Studio

Hello all! My name is Hilary OQ Nelson. I am the owner and solo operator of my custom jewelry business, Flame & Stone Studio. My family and I are relocating (our first home that we will own!) to Washburn WI with our closing date set for February 20, 2015. The house we are moving into has a fabulously huge garage that can perfectly house my workspace; however, it is an uninsulated and raw space. I am asking for help with covering the cost of materials to build the space (lumber, drywall, electrical wiring and elements, plumbing elements, a heat source) and maybe even cover some labor to help us get it finished quickly so I can get back to work asap. I currently have a seasonal summer job, but beyond that my jewelry is my primary income,so having a space to work and produce in is crucial to supporting my family! My home garage studio now is fantastic but it took the last 3 years to get it to the point where it is comfortable to work in during all seasons, and I just don't have another 3 years to build a new space! We are working with a local carpenter to help us on this mission, and his estimate is $6500 to get the 12 x 24' space workable and comfortable for year round work in Northern Wisco. This amount  doesn't include any new tools for my business or any materials I use in my work, this is strictly materials and labor costs for building a studio room. I will be eternally grateful and gracefully humbled by any donations received. Thank you for your support now and always.  If you have any questions about this project or my work in general please contact me through this website, Facebook (search flame & stone studio) or my personal email. I will post project updates here, on my facebook page and on my Instagram account as the work unfolds. Thank you again!

Hilary
