    Progress has slowed as I am in (financial) recovery.

    I'm concerned that, when it's all finished and completely sealed and in its "Stealth Mode" (soundproof), there will be no air circulation and, with all the trumpet breathing, I'll be getting deprived of oxygen.:shock:

    So, I ordered a kit from Dawbox.com to build a 12volt soundproofed ventilation system on wheels. That should be interesting .... I'll post pics when it's done.

    Btw, Peter .... Love the recycled shipping container! Let's hear it for recycling!! Whoop wooop.

    On the outside, to the casual observer ........ A tool shed.

    But inside, high tech stealth machine. Maxwell Smart would be jealous. YES, it will get finished. I ordered another small window and I'm building a patio in front of it.

    The ONLY reason I'm getting away with this ......... No wife. In fact, I'm in--between relationships and TAKING FULL ADVANTAGE OF IT.:lol:ROFL

    Next relationship? Someone carefully trained by Entrancing 1 to be the PERFECT TRUMPET FRIENDLY girlfriend. If she starts buying vintage trumpets for me to play, I'll probably marry her.

    Just a note: I wouldn't put all this into just a place to practice. It's also for a private and quiet office space that I've been needing for a while. I was even going to rent something (small office space) but the rates are pretty high and this will pay for itself (against renting) pretty quickly. When I thought about building my own office right here on the property, I thought ..... "Well, what if I soundproofed it?"

    Find the woman that also plays a trumpet ... or at least another brass horn ... for a duet ... in all ways.

    But then she might spend all your money on vintage horns for herself. Then most women I've met can find something to spend money on viz, shoes, purses, cosmetics, lingerie, etc., etc.

    Aren't Turtles aquatic? Perhaps an oxygen pump from Dick's Aquarium may work out best for you? Is the shed water tight?

    Now there's a great idea Turtle, when the shed inevitably gets too small, just crank up the oxy pressure and expand the little sucker - I might suggest rubberised paint too - you won't have to re-coat.
