Studio construction threads tend to be addictive...I remember Darius thread and how eagerly I was waiting for his posts

Update time.

I was in Helsinki for the rest of the week and left the builders alone. We did not get the concrete for the foundations here yet since we ran out of floor heating cable. No biggie, it's not a rush and I got a chance to take a few photos before the only visible thing is a solid block of concrete.

..The underdrains are now finished and working around the building, and the only thing left to do is some landscaping around the yard. The building looks different now, and I have no doubt that the foundations are now stable as the rainwater is steered away from the building instead of soaking the land under the building, only to expand in the winter and ruin the foundations.

..This is what the entrance looks like now. There's going to be a block of concrete in front of the doors. Those doors are only cosmetic, the real door is going to be the studio door.

..The iron inside the concrete still needs to be lifted some 40mm upwards, and the lifters are in that sack.

..Here you can see the construction under the foundations. First there's a thick layer of crumbled rocks, I think they're about 50-60mm in size, max. Then we have two layers of styrofoam, total of 100mm. The edges of the foundations are insulated with polyurethane - you don't want your floor heating the cold outside air!

..Here's a few good shots from the back. On the left side of the door you can see a roll of thick cable - that's the tomorrow's job for me. The 3-phase cable coming to the building was too thin for the floor heating, so I'm digging in a new cable from the house.

I absolutely LOVE the exterior building for this - can't wait to see where you take the finish of the interior of the studio. Are you going to go for a more rustic look overall or go for the difference of a really modern space?

Thanks Brad, I love the looks myself, too.

The interior is going to be more modern, but still "soft" with natural colors and materials. No need to take the 1800's thing over the top.

I'm probably going to have a special kind of a cork floor, and the colours used are mostly white and oak-ish coloured wood with some red for good effect.

Randy LeRoy's room looks really good to me in this sense.

Good choice - we have light oak and red all through the Barn here: simultaneously stimulating and relaxing. I wish we had your lively water features though: there's a big pond, but it has no ambitions to move at all.

Really interested in the positioning you're trying there: facing the rising roof. I'll be keen to hear how it works out.

Cheers,

Eric

Cool beans Jaakko!

It'll be fun watching you put this together.

Keep a little rustic on the inside too, adds to the charm.
