One of my favorite quotes by Churchill:

"When you are going through hell.....keep going!"

Looks like we are almost finished.

All of the outside work has been completed. New walls, windows re-installed and insulated, new door, etc.

The inside is almost complete.

The carpet pad has been replaced and the carpet has been repaired.

The team did an amazing job on the walls and ceiling. The windows look great with all new framing and are finally sealed in place.
The patch work is excellent. I'm very happy with the painting crew.

Tomorrow morning, the UV 2-Way blinds get re-installed on the windows and the carpet gets a double-check and a deep clean.

I've still got to locate the door for that stair entry. I'm looking for a nice glass surround French inspired piece ... just haven't found it yet.

All in all ... it's turning out pretty sweet.

I will allow the carpet to dry all day tomorrow and then ... the weekend! I will begin building my studio. I cannot wait!!!

Desk assembly Saturday ... and DAWS equipment install. If there's still time ... I will setup my Noble & Cooley kit and get it mic'd.

Seems like a dream.

Really cool man. I think the best part is how far you seem to be from neighbors. A drummer's dream.

Sorry. I've received some emails and such concerning the "UV 2-Way Blinds". I wanted to clear up the topic on here for any others that might have questions about them.

They are a custom window covering that allows you to see out but others cannot see in.

Here's perhaps a couple of pictures that might help illustrate this.



No Blinds installed.
Note the ladder in the sunroom showing through in the window in the first picture ... and the person standing in the sunroom in the next picture.

This is with UV 2-Way Blinds installed.
There are quite a few items set up in the sunroom by the windows for the first picture. The window becomes a mirror of sorts for the outside. Even if you put your head against the pane, you cannot see into the room. It works the same in the daylight as it does at night.
The second picture was taken today while I await the carpet crew. It should give an overall idea of the window coverings in question.

I sincerely hope that assists in understanding. It's a very cool product for those of us that enjoy privacy and security. The carpet workmen will be here in about an hour. Looking forward to finally getting this piece of the puzzle completed.

Wow....excellent progress man! Must feel like Christmas is coming waiting to get your gear set up.

I don't envy your struggle-but I do envy your view...

I've been playing in the basement so long I can't imagine what it would be like to jam in a space like that!

Came close when my daughters found their husbands and moved out.... Two spare rooms!!!

......one.....two....GRAND KIDS and wife babysitting five days a week....

Back to the "bunker"....*sigh*

Congrats to you on hitting the finish line!
