Topic: Remodeling and looking for recording space ideas.
As some of you may have seen in other posts, I'm doing a "bit" of remodeling at the moment. It started off small Just open up one wall a little to open the floor plan between the dining and family room. Then it was expanding the doorway from the kitchen to dining to allow better flow there... Okay a few more walls could be moved and we don't use this hall closet so we can open that up as well...Oh look, Now this would be perfect for a stairway since it's already tore out and we have some room upstairs that could be tapped into. Oh man, I need to rewire all this old wiring before I cover it up with the 2nd story flooring. This old house is being run off of an old 75amp lead and buss panel so I might as well run a larger lead from the drop and upgrade to a 200amp Square D box before I add more to it. Hate to run old wire to a new panel so might as well rewire the lower section while I'm going.... That's where I stand at the moment, I should be through with the wiring this week. The stairs are done and all walls have been rebuilt and drywalled. I've been doing all this after work and on weekends and it's getting pretty old!! Been at it for almost 5 weeks now and am doing all the work myself... Well the wife is helping when she can and has proven to be an excellent gofor
I'm adding a bed, bath, and "my room" upstairs. My room is going to be 16 x 12. Just a general music room for my guits, percussion stuff, pc and recording equipment and a place for friends to come over and jam... Anyway, I'm wanting to close in a small corner of the room for just recording. I plan on soundproofing it so I can eliminate any outside noise (Ac/Heat, the Pc, and other little things that tend to creep in. So does anyone have any input on the proper size, angles, materials, etc...? I was thinking along the lines of a 5x6 or 6x6... Opinions? -Pix
