The first layer of floor consolidation is done. This was a layer of 12.5mm plasterboard over the entire floor area, all joints caulked. The second is started which is a layer of 22mm flooring chip glued and screwed to the floor below.

A whole load of screws. I use Torx head screws (star shaped) as I seem to find them less likely to round off and the driver bits last. In any case I get a new bit in every box so there is no temptation to over use them anyway.

I assumed it was an obedience course for hamsters?

No hamsters have been harmed in the construction of my space.

Here is the finished floor and sole plate laid out. I tweaked the design a little to put the line of symmetry bang in the middle of the window. This meant making the room a little smaller and the void between the live room a little larger. But I have plans for that. I couldn't have sat looking the window slightly off centre! I'll post the floor layout in due course. Just waiting for the structural engineer to do the calcs for the ceiling support.

Framing the control room at last.

The structural engineer provided the calcs for the ceiling beam., The Building control officer checked and confirmed, so I got the go ahead.

The framing is 45mmx95mm. The beams are 3 no.45mmx195mm bolted together. (I used 45mmx220mm for the lower beam as I had it on site.)
I used 45mmx195mm around the window reveals to support the glass in due course.

Due to the position of the external window and beam depths the final ceiling shape was slightly different. A quick e-mail to HT confirmed my adjustments were acceptable and he will recalculate the bass traps when I have the final finished dims.

I am building the attenuators as part of the ceiling structure. More to follow.

More images of the framing, you can get an idea of the ceiling shape. Just the rear section to do which has some compound angles due to the angle of the ceiling and the angle of the rear wall.

Thank you, It is almost a shame to cover it up!

So this is the exact profile.

The hard surface is offset so it is underneath and reflective at the front. The rear 2/3rds, the hard surface is on top meaning the ceiling becomes part of the acoustic treatment.
Care has to be taken with the first beam as the bolt holes could present an air path so they will be well caulked. Nothing touches the outer shell. This differs from the original plan due to beam sizes, so I ran it passed the studio designer(HT), who will recalculate the bass treatment in due course.

Framing is finished.

Next on the job list is making the attenuators for the HVAC. I'll be building them into the ceiling. I'll need 6 for this room. Two fresh air at the front, Two at the rear and one each for the inlet and outlet to the outside. I'll then fill the voids with light Rockwool, the frames will be filled with 100mm RW45 and I can start boarding.

Looking good. That's some serious amount of effort you've put into it. I don't think I could have managed a fraction of that - took me 16 years to replace a garden gate :lol:
