to my studio in progress. This is the end of a long period of
negotiations between my wife and myself.
It is a one room studio. The room is about 16.5 feet long by
10 feet wide. It has two problem windows in it, which I cannot
get rid of, and need to cover up to reduce sound from a nearby
freeway. The ceiling slopes from 8 feet high to 13.5 feet high.
is the basic studio plan:
is the ceiling plan:
this design I have tried to get smooth balanced absorption across
the low and mid ranges, while having enough high end absorbtion
to keep echos away. I will be using a variant of John's wall
units for the bass absorbers and wall absorbers.
this is in a bedroom attached to the house, the first order
of business is to cut down sound going in and out of the studio.
To do this, I am adding mass to the walls. These pictures show
the caulked 3/4" plywood on the walls and ceiling. This
will be covered with wallboard. This will provide a wall with
a lot of mass, made out of dissimilar materials, that I can
screw into at any point (ala Joe Egan). I'll also end up with
a room that can be converted back to a bedroom if we sell the
house later. I have removed a closet on the tall end of the
room, but it can be put back easily.
is the smaller end:
is the tall end:
is another shot of the problem windows
is an angle shot including the door. I will be replacing this
door with a two door pseudo sound lock.
More to come soon!
