is a view from directly in front of the overhead garage door
looking to the back.
the area of the garage where i wanted my live room had such
an un-level floor,I couldnt float it in the traditional way
to solve the problem,
I drilled holes in the floor along the length of where my runners
(on 2 foot centers) I set concrete anchors in the holes, then
srewed 3/8 rods into them. I placed a nut and washer on each
rod and got each nut and washer level.(with each other)I drilled
holes in my runners so the rods could pass thru and used a nut
and washer on top to tighten it down. This gives me about a
4 inch air gap under my floor.
a shot looking from the live area to what will soon be my controll
the over head garage door will be removed and framed in.
the controll room wall framed in and the electrical rough in
a buddy of mine is doing the electric work for free.another
buddy gave me
all of this lumber for free.(sweet)
is a view along the length of what will be the live room.
dimensions are 11x17 feet.
rock(5/8)is up and glass is in.there are two pieces of glass
with a 3.5 inch air gap between them.each piece is 1/4 inch
Igot this glass for free off of a constuction site I was working
on.I have two more pieces of it that I plan to use when I frame
up my room within a room for the live room.
is another view along the length of the live room. The wall
to the front adjoins the house.although I will be using the
room within a room method here, I went for some added isolation
here by using 4 inch thick 8lb density rock wool bats in the
wall. The inner walls will have 2 inch thick 8lb density
rockwool bats in them. I replaced the original water heater
because it was gas
and I didn't like the idea of fire in my studio. The water heater
will be framed around.
a shot of the floor runners with the sub floor laid on it. You
cant buy this sub floor material at home depot ! (lol) I am
using 2 inch thick solid wood doors as my sub floor. I got these
for free off of the same job I got the glass from.(about 15
doors) I plan on covering these with 3/4 toungue and groove
one more shot of my door floor
is where the overhead garage door used to be.i tore it out and
framed it in.eventually the door that you saw on the rear wall
of the live room will be taken out and framed in.i will install
this door on the wall you see here.(the wall you see here is
the rear of my controll room)
