The initial glimpse of a new room

Part 5: Vintage ES Theater II is beginning to take form for the very first time

The construction crew arrived on March 7th, and within days, walls began to emerge rapidly, much like mushrooms sprouting after rainfall. By the tenth day, ceiling insulation below the roof had been installed, with an extra layer of rockwool squeezed in. The total depth of the ceiling absorption now measures 50-60 cm, hopefully ensuring effective acoustic performance (and, of course, thermal insulation as well).

When I first entered the room, there was a palpable sense of spaciousness, looking remarkably improved at this stage. Compared to the old room, it offers a 40% increase in area, representing a substantial improvement in both size and functionality.

Let’s wire it up

After completing the roof and mounting the slats for the suspended ceiling, the installation of electrical wiring began. The crew started by laying out the power, network and ceiling speaker cables, then proceeded with the installation of conduits and outlet boxes. Once the electrical wiring is finished, the HVAC team arrives to ensure optimal climate control, guaranteeing a comfortable environment all year round. Air conditioning was among the features I missed most in my old room, particularly during the summer when the accumulated heat from all the equipment made the space uncomfortably warm.
