Nearly there...

Well, door is all sanded down and painted now, and all my stuff is moved in. Had to put a door stop in too or my ceiling would get ruined by the door opening. I have positioned the sofa back to its original place, and although the door doesn't fully open now, it is wide enough to comfortably get people in and out. I'll still keep an eye out for a thinner sofa nearby but it's not an urgent requirement now.

I've also installed the Trendnet plugs which mean I now have internet out there. It's pretty quick too! So I think all we have left is to install the acoustic foam in the door to aid sound absorption, and then we'll have to do some acoustic treatment to ensure mixes are done properly.

Doors, Cosmetics & New Stuff

Got the new desk delivered and a new chair from Ikea. Looking pretty good in there I think! The desk seems to be a little too short for me (I am 6'3"), so I've made a couple of wooden blocks that will raise it up a few inches. The desk has got monitor stands but with two 24" monitors on the top, there isn't enough room for my KRK's. So I've got some separate adjustable monitor stands which will be much better to set up too.

The door is nearly finished too - needs some sanding down & painting and then it's good to go. Skirting boards are all down now too - just gone for a bog standard white gloss which has really tidied up the laminate flooring.

Lights are in too. Dimmable set on a rotary switch.

Sofa (as expected) is too big now with the door in place. Might think about getting a smaller one, even better if I can get it in black, would look pretty awesome at the back there. Nearly there, can't wait to get writing again, I think the break has done me some real good...
