First Fix Wiring and Electrics

Today is first fix electrics, and I went through the specifications with John and Phil the electricians to make sure everything was installed correctly. We need plenty of power when we turn the amps up to eleven!

The bears helped me install some network cabling to make sure we can get a good broadband connection to upload our music and video tracks. Fritz measured and cut the lengths of cable, Angus coiled the tails up in the roof space to keep things tidy, while I pulled through to the wall locations.

Just before the end of work we took delivery of the soundboard for the walls and ceilings.  Those sheets are much heavier than standard plasterboard, in order to absorb the sound as the band rocks on.  My people worked very hard with Barry the builder to move it all in good time.

Fitting Out the Studio

The fitting out of the building shell continues getting ready for first fix electrics.  Lots of wood and screws for me to organize and make sure that my people keep the workforce supplied with refreshments. During one of the tea breaks I managed to get my zen head on and think about making some music in this new space.

Looking forward to a nice weekend off and relaxing in the sunshine.  I hope my people manage to get the garden tidied up a bit so the bears and I can get out and about!
