This week we will finish building our large sound isolating window to the front room, acquiring sound isolating doors, finishing sheetrock on the ceilings of the two smaller recording studios and finalizing heat/AC design and installation. Then comes sheetrock finishing, electrical and lighting, sound absorbing materiaal for ceilings and walls, paint and carpet. A lot to do yet, but things are falling into place. We are looking forward to great progress this weekend.
