It’s been another insanely busy week chez NuVoid as renovations to my studio continue to take up pretty much all of my spare time. As you can see from the photograph above, the ceiling is now complete. To be honest, I was skeptical of the wood panel idea, but the result is amazing! We painted the old ceiling tiles bright white to match the trim and re-installed them around the edge of the room, creating a sort of crown molding effect, which makes the red oak stained panels “pop.” I have to admit, it looks way nicer than the usual drop ceiling! Combined with track lighting and forest green walls, the room is really starting to take shape.

The rubber flooring will be delivered on Monday, which needs to acclimate to the environment before we put it down later in the week. In the meantime, I’ll be touching up the paint job and generally cleaning up the mess we’ve made. That just leaves the cutting, painting and installation of the baseboards to finish off the room. Hopefully, the area rug will arrive in time to move in next weekend! Hooray!



If you're wondering what sort of thing I intend to do in the newly-renovated studio, check out my CD, Rodger Coleman & Sam Byrd: "Indeterminate (Improvisations for Piano and Drums)":
