Jim Ittenbach's Adventures in Soundproofing
Its mid October already and the joists are being put into place. There are four areas in
the studio that require joists to be installed.
This is another section of joists.
It is a little difficult to see bu there are many joist pieces cut out and slid into
place. These joists are about 11 feet long so I had to cut them all out and slide them up in the ceiling
before proceeding to mounting them in place. This is because I needed all the space available to get the right
angle to get the joists in place. The next step is to move them into position and mount them.
I used some of the extra pieces of sheet rock to begin finishing the last office wall.
The next shipment of sheet rock will be here Tuesday. This wall will be among the first to be completed
In this picture you can see the whisper clips mounted in place. The hat
channel will arrive Tuesday as well.
I am running a new circuit for the lighting in the studio. Here you see a
double switch box. One of the switches will be for the main lights and the other will be for a lighted sign
outside the studio that will indicate when recording is occuring.
This is simply some wiring for the some of the outlets in the studio.
You can see that I have put the insulation in the smaller areas, incluing the corner which is actually
adjacent to the office (on the other side of the wall).
