Seeing what you've accomplished is definitely encouraging. I will be moving into a basement home in the coming year(offer accepted,.. just have to sell my current home first), with plans on expanding my studio into the basement.
I'm most concerned with my ceiling though. It is a drop ceiling and measures around 7'6". I've been able to look under the existing tiles, and it appears that I'll be able to raise the entire ceiling by about 6", making it 8', if need be.
I am curious though, is your finished ceiling made from standard drop ceiling hardware, with 703 panels wrapped and used in place of the normal ceiling tiles, or was the entire design custom?
I believe I've read on this forum that one could use thick layers of pink fluffy above a low drop ceiling in order to give the acoustical "illusion" of a higher ceiling. I assume you went with the 703 for the same reason, but perhaps better performance?
Would it be OK to PM you to discuss the costs involved in your basement studio conversion? What you've accomplished is exactly what I am hoping/planning to do when I get into my new basement home.
Thanks and congratulations again on your new studio!
