Soundproof Music studio in Armidale

This soundproof music room was recently built in Armidale for an ex-musician Brian ‘Lanky’ Moore. Brian is a drummer and a vocalist, ex-band member of “Constable, Green and Moore”, “Kelsey”, “Shane” and “The Chooks”. Reaching retirement, Brian Moore decided to fulfill a lifetime dream and build a music studio.

Initially, Brian was looking to build an extension to his existing house. “Early quotes on a house extension to do this were prohibitive and I conceded it would never happen”- said Brian.

One lucky day, driving past a display cabin in Armidale, Brian spotted the Corsica exhibition studio. And then his dream suddenly was reignited.

“From quote to completion the process was seamless and professional, reasonably priced (about half original quote) and with no DA required, erected within a week!”- said Brian.

“We were guided and advised by Martin and his crew, and I now have my dream studio, and soundproofed, much to our neighbours’ delight” – Brian Moore.

Soundproofing Brian’s music studio

“Brian’s Corsica studio project was designed around its use as a music room in a suburban setting. Our aim was to achieve a level of soundproofing so that high volume music could be played without attracting complaints from close neighbours.” – said Martin Chaseling, the project manager.

To achieve this, the studio was set very low to the ground to minimise sound transmission through the floor. In addition, builders had to use high-density batts in both the floor and ceiling cavities. “The batts used are similar to normal thermal batts but are of a far higher density” – explains Martin.

Music studio owner Brian chose a good quality carpet with soundproofing underfelt as well as heavyweight curtains. Both of these factors also assist in reducing external sound transmission.

“All of the design features of his Corsica music room contribute to allowing Brian and his mates for a full expression of their music without upsetting the neighbours. Mission accomplished!” – said Martin.

Our [Canberra Outdoor Structures] quote was half the price compared to other granny flat builders and speed of installation was important. Now young family has a comfortable space to accommodate parents coming down from Sydney to look after their child – said Murray Fleming, the builder of this beautiful project.

Young professionals, owners of the building undoubtedly have a taste and talent for home design. They chose two-tone color scheme for both exterior and interior of the studio. This makes the building consistent throughout. White walls contrasting with deep dark toned window trims made their new building fresh, modern and elegant. Inside of the building is light and airy with abundance of natural light and white walls and ceiling. Bathroom floors were tiled with dark tiles and again contrasted with white subway tiles on the walls. Owners chose trendy black shower mixer and vanity taps to complete the stylish new room in their backyard.

What an amazing project!

New Office for Guyra Milling

Corsica cabin has been recently built to locally owned and operated Guyra Milling as their new Office. Guyra Milling is a stock-feed company based in the New England town of Guyra near Armidale. They are a very busy mill all the year round especially at the moment producing high quality cattle feed along with other animal feeds such as poultry. The prolonged drought and high demand for supplementary feed for cattle means the plant is working at near full capacity.

“Their new mill office looks right at home among the silos and elevators. The Corsica model of YZY Kit Homes cabins range is one of our most versatile and popular cabins” – said Project Manager and installer Martin Chaseling at New England Building Recyclers.

Our authorised supplier and builder New England Building Recyclers was commissioned to build their new office to handle incoming grain deliveries and outgoing sales of finished product . It is now completed with fitted out with NBN, internal phone lines, computer monitoring of the mill and air conditioning. The additional two windows that you can see were built by us using spare timber in the YZY kit to match supplied windows – they are fixed and mainly designed to allow better visibility in and around the plant. Very large trucks are coming in and out of the weighbridge area of the plant adjacent to the new office.

“Such a great job. Can’t wait to get some work done inside this little beauty” – commented Guyra Milling on New England Recyclers FB post.
