Re: New (imperfect) Garden Studio Build

Fingers crossed. One thing that I've discovered is the value of just having a dedicated space to create. Acoustically treated/sound-proofed or not. :) Oh, absolutely! As soon as we’d decided to do a build, little pieces of domestic normality started creeping in to my hitherto dedicated music room i...

Re: New (imperfect) Garden Studio Build

Oh, man - this is basically what I’m doing, only I’ve been plagued by setbacks! My foundation has been in for over 12 months. Hopefully starting on the walls soon... What is your roof construction? Any extra layers of mass loaded vinyl? Do the blocks of the wall go up around the joists? That’s a wea...

Re: A Long List of Compromises - new music space

Nice to see it’s all come together! I think some pot plants will really set the white off nicely.

Looking nice and fresh!

What is your ceiling height internally?

Re: The Randolph Rooms!

I’m on hold til October now - the car started making bad bad noises on holiday, resulting in the need for a replacement car when we got back.

Never mind, gives me the chance to triple check with the council!

Re: A Long List of Compromises - new music space

That’s a satisfying amount of progress! Has the manufacturer provided any figures for expected noise reduction?

Re: The Randolph Rooms!

I will go see the council again, just to double check (you lot are making me paranoid).

On security and insurance issues, my day job involves both, so I’m well aware of the requirements!

Re: The Randolph Rooms!

Sorry about the images - I’d like to embed them but I cannot presently figure it out. Re building control; I will check, but they only specified size and whether anyone would be sleeping there. The building is within permitted development rules. I had a meeting with Planning, spoke to building contr...

Re: The Randolph Rooms!

Progress! The foundations have been dug, concrete poured, hardcore put in the middle bits, and blocks ordered for the walls! I would love to show you pictures, but I can’t figure it out on my mobile as I’m currently in France. We had a spot of luck with the proceedings- as well as being within permi...

Re: A Long List of Compromises - new music space

Excellent news! I’m hoping to start soon, too. As you’ve alluded to, it’s all about the compromises. I’d started with huge ambitions and been beaten down to a reasonably treated garden build. Still, feel quite lucky to be able to do it. Are you getting a company in to do it, or have you drawn up pla...
