    {insert fanfare music here}

    I started on this last room on August 1 - and here it is October 1. That's not too bad for a project that has to fit into a normal work schedule... Evenings and weekends are where the work was done.

    Here are the photos I have been waiting for!





    The neon came from a local wing bar that closed - picked it all up at auction. The Ravens neon was the real prize - I had wanted that piece ever since I first saw it in the bar 5 years ago or so.

    Putting together the modular desk I made in 1978. No nails or screws - just dowel pins so I can take it apart.





    The new room stuffed to the gills:





    If it is too bright, I can always play by the soft glow of the neon alone...

    Thanks, Mike. The neon is all on one wall switch - I can turn it off for recording.

    Pretty impressive to see from start to finish. Congrats on the new space but by the looks of things you already are in need of an expansion

    Some before and after...

    Here is a view from what will become the hall into the studio, before and after:





    A view through the shop wall into the studio. The near pole is buried in the shop wall and the 2 far poles are in the hallway wall. Before and after:





    The double doors by the new closet. Note the concrete floor, the half insulation, inadequate security and the lack of any ceiling... Before and after:





    Now with upgraded handle lock, deadbolt, iron bar into the concrete, alarm and a couple of other things I won't divulge...

    I have been playing drums since 1964....

    The acoustic set is in their cases. It is a 1971 Ludwig in 'psychedelic red' with Paiste cymbals. A true classic.

    I have only been seriously trying my hand at guitar for about 6 years.

    The room shrank when I started putting stuff in there - fortunately, it has everything in it I want at the moment except a couple of comfy chairs...

    Thanks guys. I can't stop looking at the pics myself. I sit here in my office and look at the pics of the studio at home. I'm sure that that reveals something psychologically unflattering, but I'm not sure what...

    Anyone want a run-down on the tools used? (Tim Allen grunt here...)
