Title: Cork Oak on the walls of a Studio/Rehearsal room
Post by: Joao Antunes on May 11, 2004, 06:32:45 PM
Hello There everyone!

My guitar player is building a small studio/rehearsal room.

It's's sort of a has a garage on top of it... One of the walls has "ground" on the outside... because the terrain is not leveled.


D- Door / W - Window

Well...he's thinking of covering more of it with dirt...making it more of a basement....

On the inside, he's thinking of using pladour... for thermic insulation...and cork oak on the walls... is this a good choice? We've seen it in studios, i think...Here in Portugal it's quite cheap...we are the world's number 1 producer of it, i think...

One other thing, what should he do about ventilation? AC is $$$ out of the question....

How about the solution they present on the end of this page ? final question...for now, he will use an aliminum door...It will be replaced in the future...but...what should he use to cover it? Wood? Cork Oak? Some other stuff?

Thanks a lot
