image gallery - building the music room
the music room building project was undertaken in 2007 from March to November (about 9 months) and was a very complex project overall.
In addition to the actual music room, we needed to construct a multi-level deck area to cover a wide and deep cut-out section between the levels of the house and also shift major sewerage and ducted heating services, including the hot water system, the ducted heating system itself and return air facilities. Building was also complicated by the need to keep as much head space as possible under the kitchen area which meant creating bearers at stump level in some places. The floor system for the room itself was created directly on the ground using highest level in-ground treated timbers. The wall frames were built within the existing house stumps and below the house floor system and carry no load themselves. The room is also heated and cooled.
