New Home Studio build in Japan

Greetings Keith, And anchor and screw that you speak of are like the ones in the picture below? Yes. I think the saying goes that building a studio will take 2 to 3 times the time and budget you planned for. My build is on target to end up in that range. With the added cost of a property survey (dam...

New Home Studio build in Japan

Greetings Keith, Yes, the surface mount electrical is a good idea since it requires only one (major) wall penetration. You can attach the boxes and raceways directly to the drywall: once the anchor and screw is in place, it plugs the hole you've created. I don't know if Wiremold (brand name from Leg...

New Home Studio build in Japan

Greetings Keith,

While I'm certainly not qualified to give an opinion on Design #1, I can tell you that #2 seems like a lot of extra work. It also would interfere with the (proper) caulking of the outer shell drywall.

All the best,

Paul

Green Glue seems to be expensive everywhere


Indeed. Green Glue seems to be occupying a not-insubstantial part of my building budget.

I believe the word you're looking for is "trowel"...

Small control room design mk2

Greetings Gareth,

Congratulations on moving in!

the only access down the side of the building is 60cm wide


I guess you have to take down sections of fence in order to fix anything, yes?

All the best,

Private studio in Slovakia

Greetings,

Yes, if you've read through enough threads, Rod has always stood by the 1-in-1-out design (provided it's constructed properly, of course). Same with other designers. I know that Stuart and others prefer 2-in-2-out for maximum isolation.

All the best,

Paul

Private studio in Slovakia

Greetings Jag94,

Both of mine will be going directly up against my interior leaf on the inside of the room


Are you only using two boxes (one "in" and one "out")?

All the best,

Greetings Jag94,

Plus 36" is most definitely big enough.


It's also a standard door size, so your budget won't be adversely affected.

All the best,

Studio Build: Garage Conversion in Los Angeles

Greetings Jag94,

Looking good! Thanks for the update.

Very interested to hear what Rod has to say about the HVAC plan.

I think I did a pretty good job of getting the measurements right.


I certainly hope so.

36" for the new doors?

All the best,

Paul

I cut my silencer holes with a jig saw but without a jig, freehand circles.


Hands as steady as a surgeon.

I am truly impressed. I still probably can't color within the lines...

Studio Build: Garage Conversion in Los Angeles

Greetings jag94, When I'm going from the ports to the silencer boxes, I would still want 5" to 8" adapters with 8" ducts going to the silencer, air travels through silencer, and then also 8" ducts from the silencer through the inner wall and to the outside? It's a good idea. When...
