Thank you for taking the time to read my studio diaries detailing the process of converting my garage to a recording studio. With the cleanup operation complete, the last assessment was made on the final plan and work began on the general preparation of the area.
To kick things off, several unwanted items were removed from the walls including a gas meter box and a feed pipe to an external water tap.
Creating the doorway was quite a task. Heating pipes were discovered in the wall cavity. These had to be moved to allow the doorway to be completely clear. In tracing the source of the pipework the builder took the opportunity to replace some squeaky floorboards on the landing in the house so that was a bit of an unexpected bonus! A gas engineer then came in to relocate the gas pipe and the way was clear to finish the entry point into the house. A lintel was placed at the top of the opening and brickwork was applied to tie up the wall. I’m beyond happy with the progress!
