Well well well, I do not know where to begin.
I took another leap, this time- into building out my first small little production studio. It took me a month to build it out (after thinking it would take 2 weekends tops) and well, it took everything out of me. I did record some of the process, but have been so overwhelmed with the amount of shit I shot that I have been avoiding editing it. So I will guide you through the journey with photos...
Uhhmm..is that a Dungeon?
Certainly not uh.. the sexiest of spaces... but somewhere in those god-awful floors and the overall dungeony feel and vibe.. I saw potential?
So my plan was to split the space in half- soundproof all the walls with a Denim insulation- and put up a new wall and entrance door in the middle. Front space to be used for a comfortable meeting/talking area/ I really have no clue- and the back half my production studio of my dreams... sounds simple right?
First step- Demo.. the side walls and ceiling have to come down in order to insulate them with a "soundproof denim"
3000 pounds of drywall...
Denim insulation going in... ALREADY taking way longer than I thought..(not good)
New drywall going up
Let the face speak for itself
draw cartoons to save sanity
and my dad's name because I love him
New wall FINALLY going up... at a snails pace
Inside the studio
Bringing some color into the space
Okay- this random-ass divider wall thing has got to go..
Floors!? Could the end be near?
That took forever- time to start bringing in some stuff
Most important.. a Tea Station
Sexy Blue Wall, and a foam puzzle piece floor for the studio side
Quick Intermission Selfies
A comfy couch, some rugs, and acoustic treatment.. and we have arrived at a functional space
Sexy Mic Shots to promote podcasting services
No heater... and it sometimes gets cold
And finally... a space to myself... to create.
If you're still reading this then.. WOW..uhhh.. thank you for taking your valuable time and supporting me through this mess. I am still anxious as hell because, well.. now the pressure is on to generate enough income to be able to keep the space. But let's take this one day at a time, appreciate the journey, count my blessings, and manifest my success.
I'm back my fellow Steemians..
I love you all
