More snow here in Utah, and definitely cold, most days hover in the low 30’s. Everyone keeps working hard and we are looking forward to our first visit from Tony Brett and Brett Acoustics in early January. Here’s what has happened since the last update:

Trusses showed up and the guys got to work setting them.

Once all the trusses were set over studio 1, Jared, our superintendent, realized that the framers had set nearly half of them upside down. A few hours later everything was fixed and by the end of the next day all the trusses were in place over the studio spaces.

All the studio space trusses in place and ready for sheeting. (Lobby trusses were built incorrectly so those will go up a little later.)

Setting the OSB sheeting over the trusses.

With all the sheeting set the roofers showed up with materials and an eye toward getting the place “dried in.”

Rolling out the membrane over the foam, the seams are heat welded with a torch to keep things waterproof.

Setting trusses in the lobby. The plan is to paint the trusses and have everything exposed but I’m second guessing that at the moment because a simple sheetrock ceiling would hide a lot of the unusual transitions between the house / lobby / studio spaces.

Landscape work continues out front. This will be a step down fire pit with a bench all the way around. Hoping it will give clients and engineers a place to hang out when they need some fresh air.

Our landscape designers,    Planted Studio   , spec’d a lot of these grasses for the edges of the property. These will grow to 6-7 feet tall and form a hedge that, along with a perimeter fence, will hopefully give us a fairly private outdoor space.

Looking down Studio 1 from the booths into the future control room. Still waiting for that snow sitting where the console will be to melt.

Looking down Studio 2 toward the booth. The doorway the guys are framing will be french doors into the iso booth.

Looking down the hallway between studios toward the back door. OSB sheeting going up on the walls.

Finally moved the time-lapse cameras so we could keep capturing the work going on within the walls. The video below is updated to show the work through November 30. I was really hoping to capture the trusses being set but due to the cold weather the batteries died quickly and the cameras were out the day before the trusses were delivered! New batteries are in now and the cameras are back on the job, just need to remember to change them more often.
