Last week was filled with more rough electrical, hvac, insulation and network/security wiring. We passed our ‘power to panel’ inspection so we are just a few days away from having power out in the new space and being able to swap the house power over to the new distribution panel.
I spent a fair amount of time this week thinking about and discussing colors and finishes with Wes. I tend to be pretty particular with color and I’m really worried about getting it wrong, especially considering that what you see in the control rooms will be almost entirely wood or fabric, and fabric panels are a lot harder to change than paint. Wes has so much experience designing studios and refining things to make these very odd shaped spaces feel natural and normal and it’s easy to just want to throw colors all over without thinking through just how that will feel when you are in the studio day after day. I think at this point we are pretty close to having things pinned down and with no time to spare, Tony Brett is diving into building our acoustic panels.
Tomorrow Thom Canova will arrive to spend a week doing the rough/pre-wiring for the lines that go in the walls. After that insulation in the walls can begin and then straight into sheetrock.
