Musical Doors

Musical Doors

March 4, 2021:  Devotees in our Prabhupada Ashray ashram are asking when the wood work will be finished.  So much music from the sound of the electric tools trimming down the wooden doors!  Our carpenter assured me that only two more days and the doors will be finished.  4 doors.  16 hinges.  Then working on the third and last window.  Work is going on…

 

Work in Progress: Shed, Windows, Doors, Ceiling

March 3, 2021:  Nice pictures here!  Ceiling work continues with a metal framework installed. A two story scaffolding was constructed to build a shed to shield the AC system from the wind and rain. Carpenters are installing the double door and double glass window frames.  Doors are being made.

Butterfly Doors

Window Glass plan

Feb. 22, 2021:  Our three Carpenters, headed up by Bhakta Sujit are hard at work making and installing door and window frames.  We are planning Butterfly Doors, which means two doors on 1 frame.  One door opens outwards and one door opens inwards.  Each door is in excess of 330 pounds!  Heavy!  The window frames are teakwood.  We are planning double glass.  Each window will have a 20 mm glass and a 24 mm glass, with the mercy of Lord Krishna.  Our studio designer, John H. Brandt is always just a whatsapp message away.  I send him photos every day and he guides us.

Doorway is covered in rubber before frame.

AC System Installation in Full Swing

AC System Installation in Full Swing

Fri, Feb. 12, 2021. Raju Prabhu’s team from Solapur brought the metal stands and installed them to support our acoustic baffle boxes.  The baffle boxes are our studio designer John H. Brandt’s special sauce to create an air conditioning system that is so silent that you can record even when the air conditioner is continuously running.  We installed the fan control units (FCU).  Custom steel trunks were made to split the AC sends and returns into 4 ducts per room.  On touring our godown and seeing the Air Conditioner diffusers, H.H. Lokanath Swami was quite impressed with the AC system.  We are planning to put up an Armstrong 24 mm ceiling suspension system in a few days.  After that, we look forward to the final phase of the AC installation.
