The recording studio is detatched. It is completely self-contained with a bathroom with shower and pedestal hand basin plumbed for instant on hot water (just add the tank-less heater).
The studio control room features 200 sq. feet, plenty of work space plus a refrigerator, futon and a wet bar.
There is plenty of wall space for shelving / storage and accent lighting that helps provide exactly the right ambience.
The studio bathroom, in addition to the door that opens into the control room, has an outside door making it easily accessible from the outside when holding parties in the front yard.
The sub-floor in the studio is dri-core flooring, a Canadian innovation, over concrete slab. The Dri-Core flooring provides a warm, soft, dry sub-floor.
The studio control room and bathroom flooring is a robust washed oak vinyl plank over an underlay which is a pleasure to walk on. The playing room sub-floor is also dri-core flooring with removable carpet tile. The acoustics are awesome !
Gigabit ethernet access to the Internet is provided through underground Cat6 cabling providing an excellent opportunity for podcasting and live streaming video presentations onto the internet or just browsing, uploading and downloading.
Here is a live recording made of Right Side Up rehearsing in the studio recently:
The studio is all energy efficient with extensive use of thermal and radiant heat insulation, a heat pump and LED lighting. The building is not permitted for use as a residence.
