Thank you :-) I'm looking forward to hearing how you get on with the angled ceilings. While they can make acoustic calculations, predictions and modelling difficult, I've found them useful as long as I work to their advantages. They are incredibly useful for recording, for example. Even with minimal treatment the rooms can give recordings that somehow seem more spacious than the room they were recorded in, and in a very pleasant way.

Cheers!
Jennifer

Yes! I'm pretty excited about getting there as well. It's coming soon! I've got a bit more insulation to put up against the ceiling before I start framing the control room. I've got it all planned out. I'm trying my best to work on my Sketchup model so I can show what I'm going to do. I'm starting with the Control Room and I decided I will be doing inside/out ceilings and walls. I look forward in doing some readings once it's all framed and done. :)

Hey Everyone, happy Friday. Here's a bit more progress I've done on re-installing the structural box and HVAC main trunk.

I'm using a 3" ABS conduit to run/fish any additional wires back to the live room once I'm done.

Here's some more progress made on hanging some more insulation around the silencer boxes. Coming along nicely, and hope to start framing the control room soon. :D

I see the inspector is on-site: tail wagging means you are doing a good job; barking means you made a mistake.

I am working with my baffle boxes and knowing how small they are compared to yours and yet how heavy they are I am really impressed at your work to raise and secure yours. If you can hear me I am applauding!

Thank You!! Much appreciated! I tried to come up with a few other ways but always kept going back to that hehe. Hope your baffle boxes come out good :). I didn't feel like build multiple ones and figured I could use some of that extra space at the top. I hope it all works out in the end.

And yes!! of course the inspector is always nearby watching closely haha.

Cheers!

Francis,

Thanks for the kind words! It sure is a fair amount of work! Considering I've started this project over 4 years ago and have done lots of mistakes in the process, it is very motivating to finally be able to see it progress every week and being able to show for it.

Things are progressing well but I've had to take some time away to prep for the winter coming and make some fire wood :). Great to be spending some time outdoors and enjoy nature. I've been meaning to post another update with a series of pictures, so stay tuned on that. Once I complete a bit more work I'll make sure to post but in short, I've started framing the support walls for the ceiling, and am currently building custom ceiling trusses to support my inside-out modules configuration. It's certainly interesting having to dealing with slopped walls/ceilings. Custom custom custom custom. lol

Cheers!

I don't know if you mentioned this earlier, but it appears that on the gable wall, you have rockwool insulation, but in the rafter bays you're using fiberglass. Is that correct or am I missing something? If so, what was the reasoning for this?

hey Jag, sorry for the late reply.

I did not mention it in any of my other posts, during the construction of the house, we had hired someone to install insulation only in certain areas and that included the rafter bays. Unfortunately, we had planned to use Rockwool through the entire house, but long story short, the company made a mistake and installed fiberglass instead. I did all the walls with rockwool so half of the house is mineral and the other is fiberglass.

So for the studio build, I'm keeping the originally installed fiberglass but I'm using Rockwool/Mineral for the rest of the build. I'll be using mostly Rockwool for the entire build mainly for its properties. I loved working with that stuff during the construction of our home.

I'm going to post an update soon with lots of pictures so stay tuned :)

Hope this helps! Cheers!
