Studio Build- Central Portugal

#1

Postby Dr Space » Sat, 2019-Oct-26, 15:04

Stuart designed me a studio about 2 years ago. It was never totally completed but enough. It is about 80m2 with a 23m2 control room, 33m2 live room with 4.5m high ceilings, and an entrance room that we will treat so that vocals can be recorded in there.

It has been a long journey as it is a difficult and slow process in Portugal to build in the countryside do to the forests and all the extra regulations but we had the architectural plan approved and the structural plan is submitted and will be approved this week. I expect to get the final building permit by the end of the week.

The materials list for creating the building is done and we have invited 3 builders to give quotes..
At the moment, we are just going to build the brick building and then a professional studio building firm in Portugal, that has built world class studios all around the world, will do the inside. These details have not been totally worked out yet but they have a copy of Stuarts drawings.

I have attached a file with the overview from the top. I can add more files for more feedback but I just wanted to get this started. The stone wall that is shown is not part of the building now though and we have changed the window as well. It will have a lot of isolation this studio as the back wall will have a huge 11mx5mx30cm concrete retaining wall the will wold up the land behind the ruin. We will also have 50cm thick granite stone walls on the sides of the building. Only the front will have less.

The goal is to have a small world class studio to amaze!!!! 8-)

I was really glad to see that you finally got your permits! They sure did mess you around with that. It will be good to see your place finally taking shape!

This is the architectural plans to make the building. Thr roof slants down from 5m in the back to 4.2m in the front. Pay no attention to they way the rooms are laid out inside as we are free to do whatever we want inside and will follow the design as stuart has made it except we are moving the storage room in the live room to another corner.

Good news folks... I finally agreed with a local builder to start construction on my studio. Looks like they will start next week. It was about 10,000€ more expensive than I had planned but this seems the best we can get at this time. All the other builders where 20,000€ more. I will post pictures as we get going on this.

This is the guy who will build the studio after Stuart's design (except the ceiling and ventilation as this was never completed).
