Festival jams octaves as second Harmonyville sesh

This morning under a fresh blanket ...

Meet the Neighbors! (Console Install)

This fine group are my neighbors up the hill (well, except for my father-in-law on the right there). Besides being some of the nicest people on the planet they are great at lifting heavy consoles into place as well! What luck for me seeing as I had a 500lb MCI console for them to help into the newly floored studio space.

Then came Paul. Mr. Hammond slogged through two long days of getting a decrepit beast from the 70s running as if it were just built yesterday (er, or at least running at all). Let's just say there is a long road ahead.

The man in action!

Amy was kind enough to break away from Brian at Minor Street and build some cables for me! Hey what's that tape machine doing in the kitchen?

But wait, there's more!

This stuff is called Quiet Walk. Its a vapor barrier and pad that allows one to "float" a wood floor atop the radiant panels without nailing the flooring down.

A floated floor is glued in place, tongue into groove. The painter's tape is used to ensure the boards don't move while drying (though the fit is quite snug regardless).

In the studio, with time running out ...

The radiant panels are laid out.

The tubing is laid in.

This tubing is far thicker than one would guess (which is good, cuz a leak down the line would be very hard to correct).

And there you go, a hydronic heated floor system is in place.
