At the moment, pretty horrible :)
Acoustic treatment is the next job, just waiting for the rockwool to arrive.

Digging the white chair. I bet it makes the colours of a Hawaiian shirt really pop!

I see you've got your silver accordion already installed to the left of the chair. ;)

the chair is from Ikea and actually took a bit of time to find. I wanted a properly adjustable one, at a reasonable price, without arms.
Fits the bill nicely. :)

The silver accordion is a practice one, strictly for warming up... ;)

I've yet to find a decent one :(
The one I had at work was positively ancient, yet solid and held it's position perfectly. All the modern ones seem to have a weak back, that can't cope when you lean against it. Then after a few months the gas strut develops a leak and you find yourself slowly sinking - Oh, and before anyone says anything I'm below average weight for my height.

Well, I've only had this a week, so too short a time to comment on gas containment issues (hurhurhur), but comfort and solidity are good. So far I would recommend it.

I know this isn't really the interesting bit, but the outside is now done:

Further progress on the inside is currently on hold whilst I wait for the quality manager to visit next week.
Vexingly the sound meter i bought appears to be faulty. :(

Well that's one bass trap done, just three more of those and some broadband absorption and i'll have the perfect excuse never to do anything in there again... ;)

Don’t laugh! My buddy was building a bass trap behind him and he was told not to bother unpacking the Rockwool. Just ram it into the cavity under the stairs.
