Happy Thanksgiving! This was a good week (week and a half) for studio building, it was cold but no rain or snow - next week’s forecast doesn’t look so good.

First of all we have a floor!

  Working the fresh concrete in the future lobby. The plan, although it could always change, is to have concrete floors in the lobby, instrument gallery and hallways, and then wood floors in the two studios.

  This is looking from the back door at most of Studio 1. We ordered some pvc boxes to make up the troughs that will sit beneath the floor under the consoles. The boxes will give us a nice clean tie in to the 4’ pipes that carry the audio lines into/out of the control rooms. Unfortunately the boxes didn’t show up in time for the main slab pour, so we boxed out the area around to give us some play in the pipes and that will be poured in the next few weeks.

  Due to the temperature the slab had blankets over it every night for a week, removed during the day to allow for work. Here they are cutting the expansion joints and control joints between the studio spaces.

  The boxes arrived and the electricians set to work getting them in the ground.

  The boxes and gravel ready for the final slab pour. Not sure if they will do that soon or wait for a roof to be on the building so they can keep the concrete a bit warmer.

  Meanwhile out back there was work going on to install our oil separator and line for water drainage from the roof of the new building. It’s so exciting to get to spend thousands of dollars on concrete things that get buried in the ground. Actually its a total drag, but the city requires it so it is what it is.

  This was a short work week due to the holiday but a small amount of framing has begun. Next week I expect there will be a lot more framing and maybe some landscaping work out front.
