New Sewing Center Part 1 :)

Hello sewing friends. I'm tickled pink to announce I'm getting a new sewing room constructed in my basement. About 5 yrs ago or so, I sewed in this space in it's unfinished state for about 20 years. I moved to the upstairs bedroom and have now outgrown it! My DH declared in Dec that he was tired of my sewing things being scattered everywhere and thus his new project----my new sewing center!!!! My brother-in-law James, is the contractor and Shawn, my cuz, is the electrician.
I have been researching flooring, shelving, storage and playing around with computerized floor plans. I googled sewing room ideas (images) and OMG I found pages and pages of pics. We decided to go with a cork floor and I'm going to design a custom cutting and storage table that will be on wheels. I really want it to have drop leaf sides. My fabric is wrapped on cardboard that a get from Hancocks & Joan's. So I need shelves for vertical storage. Still working that issue out: custom built or purchased shelving? Here's a few pics of the rooms now. Also pics of the storage units, lights, & heater we purchased from Home Depot. More to come...
