Today marked the end of an eventful week for New Life’s Sprig Records Studio. After nearly 3 months of quiet, do mostly to other construction projects taking rightful precedence over the studio buildout, the theatre housing the future recording facility was filled with saw dust and the sound of machinery as framing resumed to full speed.

My father returned twice to give the crew more detailed instructions, which allowed them to make great progress.

First the floors of the control room and drum lock needed to be built up, and wire chases constructed. The floors were filled with stone and insulation, then covered.

Next, frame-out of the drum lock continued, along with the control room, including the placement of the mammoth support beam that will hold the majority of control room’s immense vaulted ceiling (an engineering feat in itself).

And finally, construction of the beautiful curved reflection wall on the north side, peaking 14″ at the apex, spanning more than 30′ wide and 18′ tall. Masterfully done.

My hat tips to Chris Emery and his crew of gifted guys. Can’t wait for next week! ch:
