Wife, father and myself got a little bored sitting around on boxing day so we decided to head up and throwing up the rest of the quiet clips and rondo channel. Unfortunately we miscounted and wound up 8 lengths short, will have to buy some more tomorrow. Got a good amount done for only a few hours work.





Heading back up tomorrow and will have my cousins in tow. Will have the rest of the channel put up and then if we get cracking will look to get both layers of gib thrown up too. Then she'll be ready for lining and I can start planning the soffit and front stage.

Productive day, very productive. Got BOTH layers of dry wall on, acoustic seal in all the seams plus along the floor and sealing. Got all the putty pads onto the boxes, double layered and every inch covered. Couple of the cut outs were a little big so will have to put some acoustic seal around that. No biggie. Gave the room a test spin. Put some music on and went outside, couldn't hear anything, was pretty cool.

I'll get the soffit measured up for materials, but that could be a couple months away due to funds. But it's progressing well.

Question: Do I need to do the plastering BEFORE I put the soffit on, or do the soffit and then plaster everything after?

Shall post some photos tomorrow, didn't get a chance today.

Photos of the fully lined room (bar one corner that I'm not looking forward to)

The room is finally lined. All sheets are up, no more bloody acoustic adhesive is needed. That stuff is an absolute pig to put up and that room in the middle of summer with no windows or A/C working gets insanely hot and humid. Only thing left to do before the plasterer goes through is to counter sink all the screws, will do that this week.



One question, I am left with quite a few tubes of acoustic seal, any suggestions on what I could do with it? Go over all the seams? Or the corners? Nother layer of acoustic seal on the seams of the top layer wouldn't hurt would it?

Probably won't be much done in the room now until I can tee up a plasterer happy to go a cash job on the weekends. Gives me time to play the soffit.

I'd check with your jib stopper first.. it might be an issue for him when he starts trying to go over it?

Coming from a flooring installers perspective, i'd put some plastic down and masking tape around the edges of the room before he comes in. We Flooring installers hate having to scrape off plaster.. and if your getting a painter in, leave it down too.. paint is even harder to scrape off, especially if they use a spray gun.

I bet it's hot in there! once that AC unit is up and running though, should be beautiful.

THere is quite a bit of adhesive on the floor that we will need to scrape off, but good suggestion for the plasterer, will get on to that.

Will be painting the room myself, just a standard black as I am putting fabric covered acoustic panels around the room.

What type of panels are you installing? You could look into Autex Composition. Comes in many different colours and could save you painting completely. It's installed with a spray adhesive (spray the wall, spray the back of the composition).

It's a product that is commonly installed in classrooms as it doubles as pinboard and acoustic softening. Comes in 1.22m wide rolls (up to 50m per roll, custom lengths also). Various thickenness, but most common is about 12mm.

I'll check it out. I was originally going to go with an acoustic foam that para rubber sell. Has a double sided tape adhesive that you just peal off and stick to the wall. I'd put a fabric over it to pretty it up and go from there.

How much per square meter was the stuff from Para Rubber?

This gives you a rough look at the Autex stuff. https://www.trademe.co.nz/building-r...ce1148ff947996

*Edit*

I think you might be better off with the Para Rubber foam going off their website.. much cheaper lol.

I've installed this stuff before too: https://www.trademe.co.nz/building-r...dd99d6e52e5bf3

One side is like a plastic sheet, then you have the lightweight foam, then another firm sheet of material. Same install method, spray glue.

Man, both those things are insanely expensive. $120 PER PANEL? Yeah, nah.

Yeah you're right actually. I calculate I would need about 21 panels. Works out at around $2500, might be cheeky and ask if they'd do a deal for that many panels.

Would save me a lot of time.

Was going to do a 3d cubed ceiling, feature ceiling and also help with sound reverb.

No progress this week, plastering has started so that should be finished tomorrow. From there it'll go on hold until we move in. Once we are in I'll get started on the false wall and then seating riser. The wife would like a bar leaner attached to the back of the riser so will have to design that too. Then it's on to the soffit. Then paint, then carpet, then fit out. Still a ways away.
