Re: OT: Ideal small studio specs for Loopers?
I am contemplating building a small, detatched studio room/structure
my home here in Oregon. ...
Ted, funny you should mention that... I'm building a studio right
now in my backyard, though
Seattle only allows 120 square feet, not 200. My 18 year old daughter
arrives from South Africa
in December, she'll be here for a year, after which the room becomes my
music studio. I am
getting around the boxiness of the room by cutting off the front corners,
making it more hexagonal
in shape (kinda). Another non-boxy treatment I'm doing is leaving the
ceiling cathedral-shaped as
opposed to flat. I put some photos up on a Flickr site to keep my
daughter posted on the
progression. If you're at all inclined to view them, the site is located
The photos show the first 2 1/2 weeks of work, though I've got
another week or two in since
that time and have just finished the roof, sheathing, and window
installation. If all goes well,
I'll have it done in another month or so. Let me know if you have any
questions, probably best to
do this offlist. The best part is that all this has been quite doable as
a one-man project.
I was considering doing an electrical heating element under the
floor, as I've done for
clients in the past. One of my worries was of creating a massive
electrical noise field for my
audio cables to pick up. Another was the distrust of having so much
electrical current running
underfoot all the time, the same distrust that keeps me from using things
like an electric
blanket. So it will be an oil-filled radiator for this room. Bamboo
floors, drywall for the
walls, and cedar T&G for the sloped ceiling. Should be sweet...
