I have a 12 x 24 out building on our property which I want to convert to a sewing /craft/guest room. Any suggestions

I want to use it for when our granddaughters come to visit [we have a rustic log cabin for the guys] so want it to be feminine... maybe french country or cottage. A sleeper or daybed, futon, etc and tv with cabinetry for conceling my sewing supplies, ironing board and work/cutting table

    I loved this project, which might offer some inspiration:

    Put bedroom at the front of this building and the workroom at the back. Figure 12x14 for bedroom and 12x10 for work area. Two small hand made platform beds could be made to form an L-shaped bed/sofa/room divider. The corner of which could be a table

    This a little bit bigger than our cabin:

    What a fun space this will be Kate. I'd suggest searching CL for a used TV armoire to use for your sewing machine. I've seen one converted to a sewing center by adding a fold down table to put out your sewing machine. It's similar to a Murphy bed the way

    I should also mention my building has the entry on the 24 foot wall and there are 2 windows . 1 on each side of the door, midway on that wall. The opposite 24' wall is adjustable shelves ceiling to floor. The lower shelves have doors the uppers are open.
