Well, all I have left to do is install the master bathroom shower, vanity and floor. I have done all of this by myself except for the carpet and the shingles for the back porch roof, working mostly on the weekends. It has been a fun ride! I enjoy work like this and it has saved us over $30,000 in labor. The video below shows some of the work I have done on my track room. Remember gentleman, a Happy Wife = a Happy Life!
The room dimensions are 10' 6" wide by 12' 6" long, 8' high. The walls are common 2 x 4 framed with 1/2 drywall. There is one 10' 6" exterior wall that has fiberglass insulation and there is two layers of R-30 fiberglass insulation. I built 12, 2' x 4' absorption panels using Roxul Rockboard 60 Mineral Wool Board 2" thick. The frames are constructed out of 1 x 6 white pine. With all the material I used, this worked out to $25.00 per panel. 10 will be on the wall (for now) and 2 will be hung from the ceiling over my listening area.
I built a 22" x 48" air silencer and installed it between my floor joist. (I have a 3' craw space). I removed the ceiling fan and carpet and installed hardwood flooring, (click track) and a standard room light. I bought the flooring on sell for $90.00. I used two 1/2" panes of safety glass 2' x 4' for my see through. I bought them from a local glass dealer for $78.00. I installed 2 XLR plates that have 6 XLR and 6 I/O 1/4" connections. The bookshelf in the rear of the room was here when we bought the house and all I did was wrap it in 1 x 10 white pine to give it a more finished look.
I have been working on this house on the weekends as I reside 12 miles south of Washington D.C. It is a 2.5 hr trip one way. At this time, my total cost is $587.00 including where I will be sitting in my massive 2' x 6' control room, (aka, the second bedroom closet). The top is made using 3/4" maple plywood. I will do a room test using the REW system in a month or two after I can get some spare gear moved down. I will post some pics in about 20 mins as well as a before and after audio sample.
