Many of you know that we’re consulting into the Epic Creative Co-op Shipping Container Studio build, just outside Houston, TX.
I’m happy to inform you that our project has recently been picked up by DWELL magazine and I’m hearing that it may get picked up by even more publications as it nears completion.
I just talked to Vic Cherubini, the Mastermind behind the metal monster…
The project is coming along nicely. Today we got a good jump on getting the R-panel on the roof. It will be finished up by Wednesday of next week and then we begin working on the exterior walls.
I had the guys take a break today and did a panoramic photo of them in the big video production room. This is the kind of photography we specialize in.
Vic and I have provided the readers of RR with an exclusive look at the project, before we release the images to the rest of the media. Sometimes it pays to be involved directly, huh? 🙂
Just click on the links below to view the pano. These are large files and make take a few seconds to fully resolve. When the panoramic photo loads, you will see a double rectangle in the lower right side of the screen. Click on it and the pano will go full screen. Use your mouse to click and drag around the room, and your scroll wheel to zoom in and out.
Seriously… I urge you to click through to look at the panoramic photographs. I can’t do them justice here on the RR system. Drag your mouse around on the image to change the view. Amazing stuff… Almost… EPIC.
(Oh, stop groaning… you were thinking it, too…) 🙂
This is a pano showing the guys involved in our project. In the pano you can get a good feel for the size of the video production studio. We will be insulating the walls with cellulose that should keep us cool and keep the sound under control.
This pano show the interior of rental 2, which is comprised of three containers.
Vic notes that it will give you a good understanding of what two containers look like that have the common walls removed. I’ve seen this at least a hundred times and it never ceases to amaze me that you can take a few metal boxes and create spaces like this, with ease.
This rental unit also has a balcony off it which is shown in the next pano.
Our second rental unit in the epic Creative Co-Op will include a 40’ wrap around deck. Last week we installed the safety railing and wire rope. We will use spray foam to insulate the container under it, and the decking will be plywood with an anti-skid coating applied to it.
It’s coming right along. Soon, instead of working day and night, 7 days a week to get the building finished… Vic’ll be working 7 days a week inside… trying to pay for it! 🙂
And, I’ll be trying to talk him into taking a few days off… We’re not getting any younger… 😉
