Studio Fortification, Post #1

Here it is! Our forever home. We love it a lot.

In the basement, we have the studio! The place where all the magic happens. It is under construction currently. 

 Roxul + 703 Owens Corning panels = a very nice, quiet space.

Back wall gets another wall. Next to it will go another wall. Behind those walls will be this damn water pipe that makes noise every time water runs in the house. 

 This used to be a doorway. Now it is not.

I'm kicking around the idea of adding a second layer of drywall once everything's boxed in, attaching it with green glue. Some plywood may be making its way into some of the new walls. I don't currently need to record drums down here, but who knows what the future holds?

The wall in front of me has shoulder to shoulder 703 OC panels in the walls, and a bass trap that will likely be relegated to the back wall once it's done.

The window is getting a ClimateSeal Acoustic Series insert, just need to find my errant tin snips. They've been missing for, oh, about three months now, so I guess I'm actually gonna have to go buy another pair. After that though, hoo boy, there will be a much quieter window with actual sunlight coming through it in my workspace for the first time. Can't wait to soak up that badly-needed vitamin D.

It's been weird having this space in a pretty much constant state of flux since I moved in. I look forward to finishing all of this up in the next month or so. I'll be back with fresh pics of the newest studio, Mk. I-Totally-Gave-Up-Numbering-Studio-Mks-In-2017, AKA FINAL MK. Stay tuned.
