Wow. Can't believe the man is back!!

Without this thread, I'm not exactly sure how my own build would have turned out. Kinda scary, actually.

Because of this thread I managed to start and finish my (permitted/legal) soundproofed garage/studio and it is 100% awesome. I'd rate it up there with one of the best accomplishments of my life, in fact.

Took me a good 5 years (HAHAHAHAHAHAH! Seriously!) but I did it and it totally works.

I have practiced with a very loud band at 2am in a very residential area and it is virtually silent 10 feet from my walls.

Welcome back, Master of Soundproofing/King of Documentation!

You were missed.

I can relate. I was planning on starting up again myself this summer until I got laid off a month ago. I'm also still trying to pay off those thousands of dollars I already invested to date.

Speaking of politics, I've been somewhat involved there too the last few months trying to help save our constitutional rights. I keep getting this burning urge to run for President. LOL

Just a BUMP to see where things are...

Well I see it and think about it on a daily basis. I am so incredibly busy right now with work, plus I am very involved in a mayoral campaign. I really hope to get going on this again later this year.

Hey,

I think that's a wonderful idea! I love playing the drums. I imagine you have already created your studio. If so, how did it turn out?

Well, believe it or not, it is not done, and the latest photos are pretty indicative of where things have been left. I definitely was consumed with a lot of other activities that got in the way of this intense project. However, I am pleased to report that over the last several months I have been very motivated to pick it up again and finish the darned thing. The space had been used as storage for my wife's business for over a year, and after much effort on both of our parts, the space has been cleared and I no longer have a physical barrier to progress. We just returned from a week-long vacation in Austin Texas and I resolved to resume work upon our return. I intend to make an appointment with the city's Building Department within the next few days to reapply for my permit that had expired years ago. I am especially interested and a bit nervous about some changes in building codes that could possibly affect my build. I am hoping that I can be exempt from them on the basis that this is expressly not a sleeping room. I will be posting updates again here soon. Thanks for your interest.

Woohoo! This is gonna be GREAT! It was actually this very thread that induced (seduced?) me to sign up on the forum, all those years ago. I was severely disappointed after reading through nearly a hundred pages of posts, only to find a non-conclusion :( But now, there finally WILL be a conclusion.

This is also one of the most-viewed threads on the entire forum: believe it of not, there have been over HALF A MILLION views, so far! :shock: To be more precise, the view counter stands at 516,325 at present... and I'm betting it will soon climb again, rapidly. Deservedly!

Welcome back, Keith! I'm REALLY looking forward to see your place completed. I hope your meeting with the authorities goes well, and it's a simple, painless task to reactivate the paperwork.

Thanks! So much has happened since I started. It's hard to start up "the machine" when it's been idle for so long, but it needs to move forward.

Been reading this thread for a while, often thinking about a reply only to remind myself the thing is over a decade old! Glad to see you may be back on track. As inspirational as this thread has been it's also manifested my own fear of going full bore on a project only to have it fizzle as life gets in the way -- and it always gets in the way. To be honest the only thing worse would be to finish 100% and then forget how to do all the things you were going to do in there. I haven't played much guitar or done a serious mix in about 3 years but I'm becoming a pretty decent general contractor in the meantime. :?
