Hi everyone

We have been working on the studio and things really taking shape. We have managed to mount the soffits and have insulated the whole control room and hopefully shall be putting the ceiling boards soon.

Hi every one

Hope every one is alive and kicking :D

Sluntbutt thanks for the veiwing adn the well wishes, i have also enjoyed working on this studio. I am having fun and learning alot for all this. I was afraid to even start, but i am glad i did.

We have been busy working, last night when i wanted to upload some pictures the power went out in my village.

We have covered the control room with the black cloth and we are have also managed to block mount the stage (couch area) with block board. WE have also put ceramic floor tiling on the floor, unfortunatley wood flooring is very expensive in Botswana, so ceramic flooring is a cheaper option for me.

i think tomorrow we shall be putting up the ceiling boards in the control room.

Sorry for the poor quality images, will try and clean the lense for tomorrow.

I am looking for a desk, does any one have a ready design to share?

Thanks

Moemedi

Looking good moemedi, here is a desk that i designed and plan on building for my studio. you are welcome to use the concept. just resize it according to how you see fit (my sizes shown are not completely correct so i dont recommend following the dimensions.). your lense looks like mine aswell, haha, wonder if the fibre glass has anything to do with it?

Hi every one.

Long time, we too a short break, been working too hard.

We where working on the ceiling boards and have now covered the control room. so both the rooms are now covered. In covering both rooms even though we are dont fully done, there is alot of reflections. I spoke to DJO (the brother in Mozambique) and he said he had put up some clouds to solve the refections, so I will look into it too to see if i can put up the clouds to reduce the reflections. I shall be having some people coming to put carpeting on the stage (couch area) in the control room, so that i am sure will reduce reflections too, but i think clouds will help or solve the problem.

Hey Prelude2June, thanks for the desk, i think really nice. is it possible to send me some images or the skt up document to look closely at. I am still looking for desks, if any of the massive have designs to share, not that i dont like yours Prelude :D, just what to see what out there.

Thanks to you all and keep well :D
