to see basic plan..
is now underway. The first job is to seal the outer building.
The building is a typical 2 storey timber barn built with a
4 x 2 frame and a simple timber cladding made from 6" x
1/2" hardwood rough cut with 2" x 1/2" battens
over the joins.
the builders - Greg in green - Mark in blue and me in black
is pretty well impossible to seal this setup without getting
in a foam gun etc so we decided not to bother and to just seal
the inside wall. We did this with 5/8" (16mm) firecheck
plasterboard. We also sealed the ceiling but this time we attached
the firecheck to a furring channel to increase the STC between
the downstairs area and the upstairs flat.

the walls and ceiling were then sealed off with plaster and
we are ready to start with the internal studio walls. The first
walls to be built are the outer walls of the booths. These are
made on the floor, stood into place and squared and braced and
then laid back on the floor and clad with 16mm Plasterboard
and sealed. They are then stood back up into place. The reason
for this is that in this construction we are placing the plaster
on the outside of the wall so that we can use the cavity for
the internal acoustics.
internal frame is 70 x 35mm Pine (3" x 1 1/2") so
this allows us a 70mm (3") airspace internally for further
acoustic treatment. The wall panels were made up to the line
of the ridge beams as one section then joined to the other wall
sections and sealed.
