I'm the kind of person who tends to be a bit obsessive when I get an interest in something. After studying recording for a few years, I soon started down the same road with studio building and acoustics. I consider myself to be a fairly handy person, and after several summers as my dad's personal construction crew throughout the years, I realized that I actually did enjoy all that manual labor. For me, I found that I had the same kind of satisfaction when I built a shed, or a table, as I did when I built a song from scratch.
When Kat and I moved back down to New Jersey, I knew the house we were moving into would allow me to realize a small dream of mine...to build a space dedicated to music and recording in my home from the ground up. Would it be the most perfect and elaborate studio build in history? Certainly not, but for me, it would be everything that I wanted.
I've been working on this project for almost a year now, and its finally its its finishing stages....and I couldn't be happier about it. Over the next few posts, I'll share some photos from the process beginning to end. It was a lot of work, but absolutely worth it.
