Please send a private message ("PM") to the moderators or administrators if you have a build diary or completed studio here on the forum, and we will add you to the list. CLICKING HERE will send a private message to one of the moderators. Just surf to your thread here on the forum and send us that link. We do our best to to look through as many threads as possible and add them here, but we can't always keep up with all the new "in progress" and "finished" threads.

Why do this? So those people just joining the forum and starting their own projects can easily find these threads to see how a lot of the common problems have already been solved by the pros that use this forum. Hopefully it will be useful to some of you just starting your projects.

Wow, I'm included in the list :shock:

At this point I feel like my thread and actual pre-construction work has turned into more of a house renovation & landscaping conversation. Some of my co-workers have nicknamed me "Domino" as I talk about working on my studio... everything I touch/move turns into something else to move and/or fix.

Looks like it's for completed studios as well as unfinished studios hence the title of the thread "Build diary AND completed studios thread." Nice pics sandlefoot. I love looking at progress on everyones studios.

Andy, your contributions to this site have been invaluable in many ways - I'm very sorry to hear about your personal woes, and hope it eventually works out for you. The pain slowly fades with ANY life-bending event, although at the time it doesn't seem like it ever will.

Whether you want commiseration or a "like minds fix" or just want to share, you're always welcome here; I hope you know that. Any other comments/suggestions are just gonna seem trite at this time, so as much as I'd like to keep rattling, I won't; just hang in there, and we'll help if there's anything we can do... Steve

Just wanted to post up a link, as I'm not sure if Knightfly will have time to add me to his list (understandable)

Welcome all to share comments and watch our progress. We're remodeling an existing studio space that needs a bunch of work and also adding a second Control Room for preproduction & midi stuff.

Join us!!!
John has moved my thread to the construction forum:
http://www.johnlsayers.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=9474
Thanks everyone
:D

This was a very old thread, but I think it's a great idea, so I've been trying to updated it as much as possible, but I need help!

If you want your "in progress" studio build listed here, then please PM me with the link, and I'll add it to the list.

If your studio is complete, or if you know of a completed studio that is not on the list, then please PM me about that too, with the link.

I'd really like to keep this updated regularly, so newcomers can find plenty of examples of both finished studios and ones that are currently under construction.
