I used to live in Omaha when I was stationed there, probably will go be going back next year. When are you guys looking at finishing the studio? Sounds like you'll have a nice console to track on, got some good engineers? I'd like to know more about the planned studio for when it becomes operational.

Drywall Complete

Drywall is finished for now. There a couple walls that will need to be finished later. We also started touching up the front of the building. We start running wires as soon as we receive them. Then finished woodwork should be right around the corner.

Putting walls up

We started progressing development outside of the control room and live room. Putting up separating walls between the front lounge and the kitchen. As well as finishing putting the inside wall in front of the water system and isolated hallway.

Cement Poured

Had to do a little work to the PVC but we figured it out and got our trench and box poured, along with the rest of the dug up floor.

Control Room Fabric

Both the control room and isolation booth have all their fabric attached to the walls. Next we build out boxes around the air ducts and then the finished woodwork starts. As we move forward the live room will begin to be covered in fabric while the finished woodwork is done in the control room. We also start
more demolition on the back rooms of the building. More photos to come

We're Back

After a long hiatus Make Believe Studios' construction is back in full swing. Lots of news, but I'll keep it short for now. Due to parameter issues the live room and it's Hvac had to be reworked, but are now going smoothly. Here's a few photos of the two back rooms (Mix room&writing room) being framed, as well as a couple photos showing the form of the walls coming together in the live room. More photos to be posted throughout the next couple months. We will keep you posted!

More Framing

This week we've had the electrician move and put in a new electrical panel and started running conduit. Framing is pretty much finished out just a few more odds and ends before it's done. Electrical work is the next big task-- finishing running conduit and lines as well as running grids in the ceiling of the lounge and getting lights and power in all rooms next week. More photos soon.

This might be a stupid question (I'm just starting to do some research for my own studio build), but what's the wall AC unit in the picture of the control room? Is it running in conjunction with the HVAC system? My studio is going to be pretty small so I don't think I need to run an HVAC system, I've been researching quieter wall units that run to a larger unit outside the building.

Also, love the space! I was very skeptical about where you were going with the black fabric on the wall, but it looks really great with that darker stained wood!

That's a ductless mini split. They are very quiet and can simplify your build but they do not bring in fresh air so you have factor that in.

You might have some insight on this. I'm about to build out in the middle of nowhere/country and will have one control room and one live room. The control room will be smaller, a total of less than 1500 square feet. Do you have any suggestions on a small system like the one you have, what do you have? The rooms are going to be acoustically treated, but it's so quiet out there that I don't have to worry about noise issues getting in or out. I guess that translates into rooms that are not completely "sealed" like you would normally do in a studio, so I don't think I'll have to worry about circulating air. I just need to heat and cool.

This isn't my build but i am currently building my room and have been posting pictures.

My hvac contractor spec'd a 1.5 ton Fujitsu mini split for my basement studio. It stays pretty cool down there so primarily I need heat and dehumidification. I know enough to get you in trouble so I'd advice you speak with an hvac contractor especially on the fresh air component.

That's good advice, I will get a few opinions from the pros. This is an area that I literally know little about and I hate going into something blind. Right now someone could feed me a bunch of bull and I would be none the wiser!
