    It will not be very high. Only about 2,40m in the highest spots. It will have some acoustic panels on the ceiling that will be lower.

    First of all congrats for the project. Tá ficando muito bom, quem sabe passo aí qualquer dia!

    But, seriously, are you crazy? How the fuck you start building a studio without a budget??? Don´t you fear bankrupcy? I know I do.

    BTW you have my dream gear!

    Thanks for the compliments!!
    I do have a budget that I hope not reach it :Smug:
    This is a personal studio and I'm using all my savings :)
    Everything I earn is to pay the studio :heh:

    Thanks. :headbang:
    This shows how many metal oriented studios exist in Portugal :lol:

    Yes it's in the Algarve :)



    Was just trying to show that if this would be the best metal oriented studio in Portugal there can't exist many others that are good :lol:

    The wall framing is done.

    I'm waiting for the HVAC to be installed and the ceiling isolators to arrive to start the ceiling framing.

    Still choosing doors and windows (This things are very expensive :erk: )

    Here it is :)

    Right now the HVAC is being installed.
    It took some hard work to define exactly where would the ducts be installed, choose the most silent and slimmer machines that could fit on the ceiling, and even choose the type of ducts and the interior of it

    The HVAC is done.

    It took a lot of time to get it right, it had to have some parts redone that were not well thought in the paper.

    Studio looks pretty good so far. I hope that floating floor works for you, most pro studio builders recommend against them nowadays as they tend to create resonant frequencies within the room unless done properly (as in a concrete slab rather than a wooden deck).

    We had wanted to move our studio into dedicated premises this year but we wanted to do it right, and the budget we'd need was just way more than we could ever get our hands on. So we're starting a bit smaller and opening our own rehearsal rooms soon instead. And we've budgeted about £6500 just for the initial two rooms....
