Thank you for the compliments, good people!
I don't have pictures for today - it got dark before I had the time to do that, but I'll be uploading more pictures on weekend, if not before. It was also raining pretty heavily.
The underdrains are pretty much done and working, and we put a thick layer of big, crumbled rocks to the bottom of the upcoming concrete slab. Tomorrow we'll know if we'll get the concrete truck here by friday or not, but I believe I'll have a thick slab here by the weekend. A floor heating system will also be installed to the slab.

My new build will be a broadly similar volume, although the apex runs the opposite way to yours and it's ground-up, no existing structure. The thing about not needing soundproofing (same here) is very liberating
Congratulations for the build! I was considering building from the ground up myself, but I ended up using this space because the basic shape was actually pretty good. I also value history in buildings, so I decided I wanted to renovate the farming house. Agreed about the soundproofing part.

Sweden-Finland road trip could be ahead next summer
You're most welcome! It's actually very easy to get here even by public transport if you're via from Helsinki.

how close will you be to the front wall?
To the internal, acoustic wall, I will be at about 2,35 metres in the plan.

Truly amazing! I have a similar dream.
I hope you consider the major importance and potential injection of additional spirit/peace to your mind by having a boat in that big lake you are neighboring.
You can make your dream work, don't you ever give it up.
The big lake is indeed beautiful, and while we might not get a boat, I really enjoy paddling and might need to invest in that.

One question - what's the maximum room width you're working with?
The internal walls without acoustics will be 4,95 metres maximum, and the length is 6,05 metres. At the listening spot, those doors (the entrance and the machine room) will be about 1,95 metres away to the either side. The narrowest part in the sloped front wall is about 2,1 metres.
