Making of a “Sound Booth”
On the morning of January 14th, David Dybala, Jack Ramsden, Efrain Ochoa and I met around 9am in the ushers’ room at Holy Spirit Catholic church to meet with Joe Langel to finalize our plans to build a “sound booth” for the electronic equipment Joe (and others) use to stream and record daily and Sunday Mass. It seems having that equipment in the church was a distraction; hence the move to the ushers room. In addition to the sound proofed atmosphere the booth can now be locked for security of the valuable equipment.
At any rate this group of 4 Knights commenced to build this “sound booth” by constructing a four foot by five foot insulate room with an insulated ceiling; the inside containing a large shelf to house the equipment monitors. Jack and I did most the wall framing work while David Dybala did the layout work. Efrain concentrated on insulating and paneling the walls as well applying trim where needed. We ran into a few unanticipated difficulties but overcame them to complete the task by 3:30pm. We had expected the job to require two days’ work, but with few breaks and only a few minutes for a pizza lunch (provided by Joe) we got the task completed in about 26 man hours. The church foot the bill for materials which amounted to just short of $600.00. Nice job guys and done quickly as well.
