Nice job, Randy! I like the outcome and I really enjoyed 'the making of...' photos & commentary. When I saw the photo of the commercial conference desk (for $15!!!) I knew that luck was on your side - it's perfect.

So how does the room sound? Is it bright and lively? I'm guessing it has a nice natural reverb. Tone report, lol...

Thanks guys!

It was a lot of fun creating the space. Now I have absolutely NO EXCUSE for not practicing :laughhard:

The existence of the state surplus store was completely off my radar, until my wife who recently started a state job suggested I check it out. The amount and variety of stuff that the store carries was surprising! There's even a short video of the place filmed by a local news station:

And who knows-- maybe someone will read this thread a year from now and discover that their state has a similar surplus store :D

:mrgreen: Haha! It sounds great!

The best part is that it has very good sound proofing. Originally, the owners who converted this portion of the attic to a room did so for their young daughter to have a place to play where she could have all her toys tossed about and not bother her mom (the parallel between the two uses is noted LOL!).

The room actually fits within the attic and is positioned above the garage. In other words, it is a room within a room; there is insulation on the backs of the walls and above the celling, with a walk space that surrounds the music room walls. All of that creates a fantastic sound barrier, which might not be studio quality, but is sufficient enough for me to make a bunch of noise without disturbing my wife when downstairs watching TV or reading.

A few photos to help illustrate:

While I've given thought to finishing the remainder of the attic, it's far down on my priority list... however, the garage is in the top-5 for projects this year :D
