Thats a damn fine kitchen Tom. Fucking beautiful.
The studio thing is a nice add on too.

I think the main leak into the live room are the three windows shown at the top of the picture. I am planning to stuff these full of acoustic rockwool and cover that with some fabric or maybe plasterboard. Any thoughts on that?

Then, the control room and something room are not well separated from the live room. There are small air gaps at the top of the dividing walls and around the doors. Any suggestions on that?

I'm thinking that for now, while tracking I can have the monitors turned quite low, or just use headphones in the control room. I've seen other studios doing this but do you guys think it'd be unprofessional?

I've ordered one of these acoustic treatment kits with some diffusers and bass traps for the live room, as getting that to sound great is my absolute priority.

any other thoughts?
just bumping in case anyone (jaicen?) can help

Hey Tom, feeling the love
Had no internetz for two weeks, but now I'm back with fibre optic (45MB/s)!
Currently at work, but I will look it over and type something tip when I get home.
Can you show us what the current layout is like before you add any walls?

The walls are in, I'm not adding anything on top of what's in the layout.

I built my desk yesterday. Going back tonight to see if it's still holding up my allen&heath and monitors... nerve wracking as my carpentry is not excellent.

The live room is sounding great now, I have some of those grey acoustic tiles on the walls which have dealt with some nasty reflections in the high frequencies. I could do with a bass trap but I kinda like it boomy for the kick drum so may not both. I still have the air gaps above the dividing walls which I plan to fix with regular coving. I've put some draft excluder tape around the doors which helps a little.

I've still not heard the control room properly but have some diffusers for that if I need them.

It would be worth filling the gaps with an acoustic mastic or foam before coving. Coving alone won't do much/anything to stop sound on its own.

I'd not heard of acoustic mastic before but it looks like just the job, thanks for that. I wonder if I can get some locally. I need to get set up this week really to avoid pissing away any more cash

Look for a firm called Sheffield Insulation (not just in Sheffield). They should stock that kind of thing (and deliver).

Looks very nice and professional!

My only worry would be the radiator making noise or resonating.

the radiators are off and don't seem to rattle at all. I hadn't even thought about it to be honest. I would have noticed it by now right?

shit pic of the control room almost ready
