    Yep, not too shabby! They're doing all the internal acoustic stuff tomorrow. Vinyl layer, ply, green glue and acoustic plasterboard.

    Ya gotta love pre-fab! That's looking great.

    Is the glass double glazed? I'll be interested to hear what level of sound reduction you get when finished.

    When are you moving in???

    Double-glazed, laminated acoustic glass. Will be doing some measurements when it's done.
    First stage of the build completes in the next couple of days but it'll be another couple of weeks before the plastering, painting, electrics etc.

    End of day two and they're done with this bit of the build. Back in a fortnight for caulking and plastering (once everything's had time to settle.

    Sweet. You going with carpet wall-to-wall, or area rugs?

    Also, when the time comes, some good quality blockout curtains hung to cover the glass doors work great for deflecting sound off the glass. You can spend a motza on proper acoustic curtains (weigh a tonne) but probably overkill for your purposes.

    floor will be laminate with rugs if I need to tame the reflections. I'm going to be building a moveable structure that will hold nine 1.2m x 0.6m x0.01m rockwool absorbers. This will mostly sit at the mixing position but where I need to tame the recording space it will be rolled across the room to control reflections.
    That's the theory at any rate. I also have a couple of duvets to hang where and when required.

    Looks sweet so far, Drew ... and looks to be the perfect size for a one-man operation; big enough so everything can have it's place, yet small enough to easily reach everything. I like it.

    That's the plan, obviously a bigger room to fit the whole band in would have been nice, but then i'd be moving house. And as soon as you start talking about real drums then you're into real sound-proofing, which means real money...
    So all in all, i think it will work for me when it's all done.
