Cloth stretching?

I've thought about the cloth & additional frame approach before, and recall someone recommending these be attached with the small headless pins / nails joiners use. No idea what these are called sorry - the skirting boards and door architraves in our house are fitted with these, and they go flus...

IKEA BILLY Bookcases as DEEP Bass Trap Frames?

Nice idea to perforate the side panels and mid shelf. When I'm trying out various combinations of things like that I usually do quick before and after tests with REW to see what the effect is. The air gap behind these traps has a big role to play in their performance, so I'd be inclined to ditch the...

IKEA BILLY Bookcases as DEEP Bass Trap Frames?

Nice one, it would certainly save a load of hassle for sure. I'd be very interested in seeing the results if you make any before and after measurements in REW. Something you apparently have to watch out for if you stuff these with low density fluffy insulation is vertical compression of said insulat...

IKEA BILLY Bookcases as DEEP Bass Trap Frames?

Anything that deep I'd prefer to fit flush into the room walls, which would call for diagonal sides. But if you can live without that, I reckon your main problem will be structural stability. Not from missing middle shelves, but from the missing thinner back panel. From memory, that gets tacked into...

The leaves, the doors, the insulation

I've read about several approaches to this. At one extreme Rod Gervais advocates a continuous through jamb, i.e. no gap at all. His experience indicates that the loss of total isolation is not that much, and the benefit of the resulting sturdier door frame useful for hanging very heavy doors. Howeve...

And so it begins...

Thank you, it has been a lot of work, but so worthwhile. And it's great that you can build your place from the ground up, gives you the opportunity to get it correct in the first place. A significant amount of work in my place has been mending details that are not so important in a standard house se...

1757 Something about your description of the timeline of your project leads me to believe that there must be some sort of "half-life of construction theory"... Sounds like something Cyril Northcote Parkinson may have had thoughts on, were he here today :-) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pa...

Attic Shaped Studio

I forgot to mention that the knee walls will consist of 1 layer of OSB 3 facing the eaves, then green glue, then another layer of plasterboard facing the inside of the room. The OSB is good because the eaves are a potentially damp space, and it will also allow easy attachment of sockets, patch bays,...

Static Pressure Calculation For the whole system, including phase 3; BOM.PNG Total static pressure at 186 m3/h (6 changes per hour) is 147 Pa. The best inline fan I've come across was suggested by (I think!) John Steel on this forum. It's a TD-Silent 500/150, and is one of the few that provide prop...

Phase 3 This part will eventually be integrated into the "as yet to be finished" soffit design that will be something like this; soffits 7.png The idea is to attach larger registers to the existing silencer sleeves to slow air speed and also give another impedance change. Connection will ...

Phase 2 This will be soon after phase 1 is finished and working properly. It's a simple method of getting better air circulation and distribution by extending the supply vent closer to the rear of the room. If ever a mini split is required, around this area would be a good place for it I think. An ...

Interface to the great outdoors Vents to the outside will be though the roof soffit, very useful as it avoids breaching the walls or the actual roof. The latter are serious undertakings with many potential complications and way beyond my capabilities. Soffit fitting is far simpler and cheaper. I go...

Thanks Lester, that table is exactly the one I found, LOL! Agreed about F7 looking ideal.

The design is nearly finished, I'm currently looking for a dust filter for the ventilation intake. Space is pretty tight so an inline box type looks useful. There are various filter grades available, from G3 (for garages & factories) up to H13 for clean rooms etc. Are there any recommended types...
