Ethan... that is a cool design.
It would fit into my space if I use only part of the garage, too.
I have been thinking about the one room idea all along, but if I build a decent control room I can always add a room into the un-used part of the garage later.
I am wondering two things:
NUMBER ONE: My console is 8'3" long and just a hair under 4' deep. The 10' short end of the room in your plan would make my console have to sit further back in the room. This would cause more un-used, dead space in the front of the room. Yes, I'd put power supplies and power amps up there, but it is still useless space.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO WIDEN THAT END OF THE ROOM TO 12' WITHOUT RUINING THE OVER-ALL SCHEME?The 15' longer end is perfect.
I guess I could scale those two walls longer w/o lengthening the side walls....?
NUMBER TWO: I would definitely want to cap the cieling to create a true room within a room. Since I would loose to much ceiling height if I tried to span the 15' with ceiling joists would you suggest hangers? Joists would have to be AT LEAST 2" x 6" s to span that distance and I can't loose the height I have. With treatment it could take away as much as 10" from the existing floor to cieling height.
I CAN'T DOWNLOAD THE ELEVATION PIC, SO COULD YOU ELABORATE ON THE CIELING A BIT? I understand the cloud.
WAIT!!!! The sheet rock can be on top of the joists, right? A bit of a hassle to build but why not? Fill the space between the joists with insulation and cover with cloth!
Hmmmmm.... not a bad plan.
I need the room to be isolated because although our neighborhood is out in the country where it is quiet, the whiney-ass neighbor's bedroom is about 75' from the space I'd use.
I don't really worry about sound leaking in... OUT is the problem.
Thanks for the ideas.
