Studio Construction Advice

    I am researching building a studio within an existing structure. The structure is an office park and the unit is on the corner. There will be one shared firewall in which I will not have to use for the studio space. I will be floating the floors. Although I would enjoy thoughts on the construction of the floors, walls and ceilings, I am really looking at diffusion/reflection solutions. The ceilings will probably be 13/14" in the live room and I'm not sure in the control room. I have purchased the book "Sound Studio Construction on a Budget" and am learning quite a bit.

    I wonder if anyone could point me to other really good books or links that goes in depth on this subject. Although I plan on consultation for the project, I will not have the funds for someone else to design and build, so I am content to try myself this go 'round.

    Also, any tips from experience would really be helpful.

    Thanks, Thomas

    Just keep surfing and you can find things that others have done and some with detailed pictures of what they have done and how they did it.

    good luck

    Thanks for your input so far. I've noticed that any links having to do with Malcolm Chisholm are broken. It seems as though I remember reading something from him that was really informative (about a year ago). Does anybody have a correct link?
