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.
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.

Turtle, you could purchase an oxygen determinator as allows you to test your oxygen level frequently. They clip on a finger and will read your O2 level within a minute. I have one, and carry it in my pocket! Durn things are expensive, nearly $75. Your O2 level should read higher than 95(%). Of course you could buy or lease an oxygen concentrator (much more $$$) and put it in your father's house and pipeline it into your shed. Mine is pipelined 45' from the dining room into our bedroom in 1/8 ID delivering 2 liters of O2 per minute to the cannula (in my nose) that I sleep with. In fact, I could actually play an instrument with the cannula in my nose, but it wouldn't do much good if I wasn't breathing through my nose, so I abandoned that.
Irene crashed crepe myrtle tree branches on top of our old shed (my quasi shop). No structural damage, but that shed is slated for demo and replacement when cash is available that is not needed for more pressing priorities.
Wow Turtle. Versailles probaly doesn't have as good a trumpet practice area as you're going to have when it's fuinally finished. It will finally be finished won't it??
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.
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?"

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.
