But you'd still need a fresh air supply, and that, though small, could cause problems when its cold outside if it wasn't at least heated. You could have used a packaged heat exchanger unit complete with fans to minimise any temperature impact , but you'd still need somewhere to put it out of the way and you'd need attenuators (though smaller).

Control room being boarded with it’s OSB layer. This was followed with 3 layers of plasterboard and has now been plastered and painted. Every layer caulked etc.

The following link should lead to images of the room in it’s current state and the final dimensions. I just need to make the bass traps and put in the glass which is due Monday 4th Mar. On the ticket the total glass weight was well over 1/2 tonne for the 4 openings. That will be a combination of 12.8,10.8 and 8.8mm acoustic laminate.

Once the bass traps are done I will cover with fabric and the same goes for the ceiling.

I ended up outsourcing the acoustic panels as I needed quite a few. They should be with me 11 March.

The live room is also nearly done so will update on that soon.

Attached are images of the live room. It is set up for a film screening in these photos. Just a couple of cupboard doors and acoustic panels to add and it is finally done. Subjectively the room sounds great and with a film playing full blast there is minimal low frequency noticeable outside which exceeded my expectations as I still need to seal the loft hatch access which is effectively a 900mmx600mm opening in the outer shell at the moment

The control room is finished but I am still not decided on the final equipment selection at the moment. Again the room sounds fine in the sweet spot. I need to add the final door seals and I can report on the room to room isolation.

Take my advice, I'm not using it.

Love this.
Just joined today as the new home I'm constructing for me and the wife is going to have a live play/recording living room in it.

Welcome to the forum.

Why not create your own construction diary here? We'd all be interested.

Best of luck with the design / build me old mucker.

After many years of engineering/producing with and without daylight,

can't remember any sessions that were better or worse, with or without windows.

I do remember loving every second.

There are no rules. Design for comfort , practicality and creativity.

Design a place that works and where you want to be.

You could do worse than buy from these people https://gikacoustics.co.uk. Other brands are also available

But, there are loads of threads in these forums with detailed info on how to DIY, or what to buy, as well as regular "Studio SOS" articles in the magazine which frequently have to deal with room acoustics.

I was thinking of this acoustic panel:

You will need some broadband absorbers too, and the claims they make of absorption down to 40Hz will most likely only apply to the 110mm thick panels spaced 100mm off the wall which takes up a fair amount of space in a small room. Detailed info is a bit sketchy on their website though.

Wowzer, that's a build to envy. I wish I had the space and budget to build something like this.

I know the thread is old, it's a shame the pics were deleted. I wanted to see what the final build looked like,

Also how was the sound insulation?

My dream would be to build an underground studio, sort of like how colin furze made his underground bunker (although he has stupid amounts of Youtube money to do whatever he wants).

I reckon you could have a drummer in his bunker and you wouldn't hear a thing.

Acoustically, I agree. Also it's undeniably extremely cool :-)

If I recall correctly, it wasn't youtube money that paid for his extraordinary underground bunker but Sky sponsership. More power to his elbow, his content is brilliant!

In my case I use studio space not only for engineering but for inspiration, so being underground in a room without a window that has a nice view would feel a bit weird. not that my current space has such a view but I've always considered that a massive compromise and I'm hatching plans to mitigate that.

If that wasn't a consideration though...
