only 2??

Yes Keith - I'm trying to keep it simple and affordable. I see so much overbuilding around here - look at Left Bank - it is only two single layers of 16mm (3/4") drywall yet no one has complained about it not being soundproof. People around here seem to be confusing the number of layers of drywall with the size of their dicks :D

You only need excessive drywall layers if you are setting up in the middle of an office block and you have other tenants above and below you and on the same floor. Moemedi doesn't have any of those problems.

To keep it affordable I'm suggesting Moemedi continue the existing roof and have a double layer of chipboard on top and a double layer of drywall on battens underneath with insulation in between. see the skp file.

cheers
john

Unfortunately I can't install the Sketchup viewer... :( (Employer's laptop, not allowed to install it.)

As far as the multiple layers of drywall, I'm just keeping in mind that Moemedi wrote in his initial post...

I have built the studio in my fathers land and extended to his existing building that operates a bar and has a loud jukebox. There are some houses near by the site where I am building the Studio.


So, it's not just outbound noise that I was looking out for him on... It's inbound noise from the bar and jukebox.

I know that I tend to err on the side of overkill at times... I just didn't think this was one of them.

Yeah - fair enough - he could disconnect that roof from the other roof by adding support at the rear for a new wall and only join the iron to continue the roof line. 2 layers should be enough for the adjacent houses.

It's really up to Moemedi as to how much he can achieve.

Hi John, Keith and THe Johnlsayers.com Massive

I think that I understand what needs to be done.

I will have to take some days organising some more cash for this project. I was wondering it at the same time we could push for the Design and measurements for the control room so that When I get some money and go for the materials, I can try and organise a discount. SO that When I go for materials order all things once and try and get a very huge discount.

We are just finishing the wall that was demolished to the end, I will bring some picture for veiwing on Monday.

I hope to start working real real real soon. Every Night I dream about the Studio, When I am driving, I think I am about to Go totally Mad.

Thanks FOr your support

Keith, I will get you some stills from the Sketch Up for you to see what John was talking about.

Hi

Keith here are the stills of the roof that John had suggested.

John due to the amount of things that I will have put ontop of the rafters, THe ceiling will be under 3100 as there will not be enough space for all the things to be on there. SO I think we will have to remove some bricks , about three courses so that it my increase the angle of the Ceiling.

We are building a parate wall to devide the roof of the bar where the juke box is and between the booth and control room. See pictures.

I hope to start working soon.

Moemedi

I wouldn't bother Moemedi for the moment. Those walls will all be covered by the internal treatment so you won't see them.

Looking good mate.

cheers

hi everyone,

i am busy trying to organise some cash for the roof and talking to the hardwares to give mi a deal so that I can manage to finish every thing.

So I have asked Andrew (the Builder) to try and finish the flooring for the seat of the building, while we wait for some money.

and I have included some picures of what is happening around the rest of the building.

Thanks

MOemedi

Wow, great pictures! Thanks for keeping us up to date. 8)

That's an interesting "courtyard" brick pattern...

Hi every one

I am have been quite looking for Money to try and get the roof and everything, equipment and finish off the studio.

I have been talking to the banks and we must submit a proposal to them real soon and in a month from submission they may have the cash at hand for the studio and from all the materials but soon after that they will want some repayments. I was wondering John, Is it possible to have the plan for the control room and the Booth so that if they do agree we dont pause and work right and fast ? I may need to give you all the final dimensions of the room so that we are on the right track.

Just let mi know if its possible.

Thanks

Hi John

Here are the final measurements for the studio.

The height of the sliding door area ( the space into the booth from the control room) is 2050mm

The width of the sliding door area is 2000mm

The height of the booth wall is 2450mm

The height of the couch wall is 3120mm

If you need any more measurements please do let mi know and I will get them as soon as possible.

Thank you John, I am also trying to get funding from a competition to set up the studio, I will refer them to the site to see the development of the website.

Thanks Moemedi
