Minimalist set up with docked kitties.

Getting equipment from work, Mrs P's cast-off desk and a new house means my WFH arrangement now looks like this:

Excellent cat action.

Your work has some IT kit salvaged from the smoking ruins to hand out?

Yup, just about everyone has been issued a lapdog and a monitor. They're not really from the smoking ruins, though, they've all been acquired since The Event.

I’m finally about to move out to the shed. Spent a few days and nzulating floor and ceiling and fitting power and underfloor heating. Hope to move in at the weekend - given the piles of insulation and plywood that have obscured the bike in the sitting room, Mrs S may not let me move back out once I’m in!

I might even do a picture when it’s done.

For those who were interested in the first installment of my home office (see post 647), here is the next bit.

The big thing, called a cloud because it hangs below the ceiling for acoustic purposes, was completed ...



... and hung in place with two grid things, called space couplers, underneath. My woodworking skills have had to improve to a level beyond what I thought I was capable of.



Along the way we finished the kitchenette ...



... and the toilet.



Two acoustic steel doors, weighing 160kg each, were installed. We got these from Spain at half the price I had been quoted in the UK and without the post-Brexit delivery headaches.



Compression closers mean each door shuts so tight that it is air-tight, sound-tight and well on the way to being water-tight.



Then the lino floor was laid in the corridor ...



... and right through the kitchen and toilet areas.



From there I have been left to my own devices to lay the studio sub-floor ...



... and the ash wood floor.



I still have all the acoustics to prepare and install on all 4 walls but in the meantime I have set up the drums and can start working from home. The timing was perfect as I finished setting up the drums on Tuesday and then on Wednesday at midnight Slovakia started another Covid lockdown.



I am enjoying a break from construction activities until the new year.

That's really interesting to see how the studio is taking shape. Thank you for sharing. It's shaping up to both look the part, and given your attention to detail, function exactly as intended.

Flippin' heck r-r  :o  That is very impressive indeed. 

I picked up on the comment about how your woodworking skills have had to improve beyond the level you previously thought possible.  I noticed the same thing.  Its amazing what giving a job a "good coat of looking at" as my dear old dad used to say, then giving it a bit of thought, maybe having a mooch around YouTube and adding in the proper tools can achieve.

I think we're all looking forward to the next update  :thumbsup:

Loving reading about this and seeing the photos and thought put into this space. It's going to be amazing when done.
