Hello my friends, I decided to post here the evolution of this big project for my small studio in Brasil.
I hope you enjoy this jorney with me.
Cheers!!!

In 2008, we built our home studio, that lead to a tiny Control Room and a Small Control Room:

It was so unconfortable...

Image

The mixes were so bad, and also the monitoring, because modal problems of small rooms.
We had good treatment, but that was not sufficient.

Well, the guy next door sold us his room, so we decided that was time to get a real good designer this time. We contact John Sayers himself, but he was so scheduled that he couldn't start our project until june. (we contacted him september, last year.)
John Sayers indicated Glenn Staton to make our project. His schedules were better, so we contracted his services. More info:

As the initial parts of the project were done:

and

we started to put the old walls down:

And cleaned all the mess:

Then the design was done, and it resulted in some (small) studio porn 3D models:

Control Room:

Image

Live Room:

Vocal Booth:

It still will be a small studio, but not that tiny anymore. I'm so happy that more than 3 people will be confortable in the Control Room at the same time (though, it was good to have an excuse to kick other band's members from guitar/bass/vocal tracking :p).

This week we started the building itself. First HVAC and then wall insulation. I'll add more pics later.

Cheers :rock:

Hi fenixdoido, and welcome to the forum! :)

This looks like it will be a very interesting build, but I just wanted to ask you if Glenn agreed that you could post the plans for the studio here. That's his proprietary work there, and he might not be happy with the actual plans being posted, so please check with him to make sure that it is OK.

Maybe he's OK with that, but it's good to check.

The renderings look great! Can't wait to see the progress on this build!

no issues with posting the plans. they've actually changed a bit to accommodate the use of block walls instead of framing because of the costs and we're working periodically on adjustments as this progresses.
