Foam the home office

In August of 2013 I decided it would be better for the family and for the business if I had an edit place in our home. So I stole out back patio and closed it up.

So without a load bearing wall Grason and I busted away the brick columns and put in 2×6 studs in. Two new windows and a door completed my little 6.5 x 12 foot work cave. I roughed it all in and setup shop before It was completed properly.

After working in it for a year I decided to take it from rough Sheetrock to completed audio/video studio work spot.wpid-20140803_221253.jpg

Years ago when I moved Big Box Pro out of my folks house and into a proper office building I teamed up with Michael Fuentes. We shared 300sf of office space in the Oil Industry building – Downtown Corpus Christi.

Over the years we had accumulated a lot of Auralex Acoustic Foam. This year he upgraded his studio and donated the foam to my new home/studio/office/suite/jam-room.

So the slow process is moving on. I’m really liking the way the room is coming out. The cedar bead board angled ceiling came out really nice. I will try to post new photos when I get all of the Auralex foam on the walls. Its a slow process of cutting and fitting each and every piece for a tight fit.

“I’ve got a long way to get before I get back home” – Bob Schneider just played as I’m writing. Sounds like a great way to start this blog about my life.

Today I’m trying to complete a few video projects and decide what and how to work-over the office edit bay.

I closed in my outdoor patio last summer and have been working in this shell. Its great to be able to crank out projects and be close to the family. My big blowout window faces the backyard. The backyard has a large tree-house and swing-set I watch the kids play on why I edit. This edit bay is very functional but looks like hell. So that is one of my projects this week. I must find a plan and the energy to complete the little studio at the home.

Here is a look at the main studio office I work in.
