Street Light Studio is the home of SL Schildan, a photographer, video editor, writer and occasional artist. There is always a camera, sketch pad, writing tablet and 3x5 index cards in a backpack. You probably have seen her around, she's the one behind the camera. It is here at Street Light Studio she hopes you will enjoy the fruits of her passions.
"Beauty is everywhere. Since beauty IS in the eye of the beholder and there is no accounting for taste; we are all free to choose what we love."
This is our first complete update of our site and we hope you like what is evolving. Shari will be adding to this site as she finds time to fit it in. We all expect you will always see this official banner on this page:
"This site is still under construction."
The reason is simple, things change daily and nothing is ever complete. A single project may be finished, but there is always another project, or photo to take or a story to write.
She is most thankful site building does not include sheetrock dust, sawdust, hammer, nails, drills, paint, paint brushes and endless cleaning of dust and debris!!! Which, as you can see below, was the current status of her house. Check back often. We were so pleased with these result, the MR of this house immediately took hammer, saw and crow bar to the other bathroom on this floor. Yep, it made just as much mess everywhere and we thought it would be done in a few short weeks. Silly us, we should have known better. Three months and counting we are nearly ready for the tile work. Pictures of before and midway progress of bath project number two will be posted soon.
Photos OF BATH PROJECT NUMBER ONE left to right: The only photo of the "before" was taken part way into the demolition. A big part of the remodel included gutting the room down to the studs. New plumbing, wiring and insullation followed. Then the sheet rock went up, was taped, finished and painted. The floors tiles were set, the tiles in the tub area were added. Everything was filled and finished with grout. A double glass top sink and vanity is in place between the two windows; final completion included filling the double Jacuzzi tub for the first time and celebrating the end of a long and successful project. The water spills in a waterfall from the new faucets. The shower is fabulously large and all the new lighting is a wonderful thing.

Yes, the old bathroom definitely needs a face lift. Here's the proof!!!
It's benn taken down to the studs and now has add insulation, reconfigured plumbing to accommodate a new petite tub. The old knotty pine is gone and space for a much needed cabinet was borrowed from the adjoining oversize closet. There will be a place for towels and a laundry hamper!! All important stuff for a functional bathroom. In progress as you can see.
New things are slowly being put into place. Pictures coming soon.
