I decided to try something I haven’t done since Tali was born… a good long bike ride! Apparently Studio D is on the summit of a small mountain. Yep, turns out it was pretty much all uphill, or at least that’s how it seemed.
But I made it safe and sound, and felt invigorated by the cardio, which should help me with getting into better shape, which is something I’ve been working on for a while now.
So my whole visit was a day of preparations: scraping, taping and mudding the walls. I got the first coat entirely done… prepped and ready for sanding on Day 21.
I feel like I’m a fairly quick study. I mean, I was much more confident with my mudding today, and much faster too.
It’s really starting to come together and look good!
Check out the Backstage Pass video from Day 20 at Studio D…
I received an email from Robert after I told him the water was still coming in: he visited the studio again after hours to try to track down where the water may be coming from.
He explained some of the things I could do to help prep the area for him to come back and fix the problems, so my daughter Tali and I visited the studio with a couple of wire brushes and compressed air to start cleaning the joints, ready for that “cementitious compound” Andy told us so much about on Day 4 (sorry if that sounds pretentious).
So, while I did what we set out to do, Tali built a habitat for a tiny toad we found outside the fire exit door.
Oh yeah, and we learned that apparently, Studio D mice can chew holes directly through concrete!
