Yup...............it does look good.

The nice thing about exposed walls is that if I decide to do this, then it won't take much effort.

I gather you are not going to plaster? That would bring up your STC by about 3dB, but might be wasted as I suspect your roof structure won't approach the STC your walls already have.

You're building a double ceiling, but not double walls, right? Did you consider some glass bricks high up? It's a good way to get some natural light without compromising on isolation.

Correct, no plans to plaster and no double walls. I will be adding some wall panels/ ceiling panels and some corner bins, but nothing else.

I was thinking about the glass bricks, but to get any sort of half decent light in there, I'd have to use a few and I stay on a terraced property and my neighbors on that side look down into the room. I don't want to advertise what gear I have in there.

Well they got done with all the brick work yesterday.

The feather in and blend in is pretty damn awesome, once the walls have been cleaned and brushed and painted, I'm sure that you'll hardly notice it.



They slotted the walls in order to get the feather in as neat as possible and also closed up the upper two vent holes that were used to ventelation. I had them close those as the AC lines can be made much smaller and neater.

I found more work to do on the inside as the last of the small sections of paint have to be chipped off and removed. I also have to now wait for my electrician as he won't be able to move my lines next week, so the roof frame is on hold until he's done with that.

Yup, loads of work at the homestead. Had to pull up all the waste water lines, that took a lot of money and a lot of time.

They finally started with bricking up the windows on Monday. They should be done today.

Before.



During.



After.



Outside.



I was fussy about how I wanted this, I want the outside to look neat and clean. I don't mind if the exposed brick is somewhat off, as the exposed look and patched look is kind of what I'm going after.

Before.



After.



Super fired up now as I've organised that the houses main DB board be moved as well as made bigger so that I can put in an AC for the music room as well.

Hopefully in the next week or so I can start with the framing on the second door as well the suspension on the second ceiling.

Hey Adrian

I have a heap load of un-used links left. I've handed out a lot to guys and if you want, drop me a postal address and I'll put 60 odd in a bag for you.

knock him up for R2800 and then settle at R3000/ R3100. The case (hopefully its the moulded one) is worth about R1000 on it's own.

What about Dog Ho?

^^^^MTM2 for me as well. I like the look of the non-branded guitar as well. I played a MTM1 a few times while I was trying to make up my mind about them and just couldn't commit to that kind of coin and I wasn't 100% happy with the EMG's as its safe to say that actives aren't all that to me anymore.

MTM2 with a good pup/ electric upgrade and you can call the job a done one.

Update time.

Finally stripped off the last of the plaster, now it's time to smooth down the walls and steel brush them all. Next is to close the 2 windows as I've decided that they serve no purpose to me.









Already got all the mouldings for the roof and ceiling, just waiting on my electrician to run all the new wires for me as well as new cables for the AC. Then the roof can go on.
