work-from-home capable

If you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, don’t ask what seat! Just get on.

Blissful Hiker Alison Young before the home voice recording studio build.

…and just like that, at exactly the moment when working at home became a necessary “thing,” construction of the voice recording booth – the blisstudio – reaches completion and is ready to launch already in flight!

what it took…

  • 45 2×4’s
  • 18 yards of fabric
  • 15 4×8 foot MDF boards
  • 10 saws
  • 8 pounds of screws
  • 6 3×3 foot 3/4 inch neoprene squares
  • 5 1/2 bundles of rockwool insulation
  • 2 mini computer fans
  • 1 big bucket of carpet glue and a door knob
  • and a bunch of other things I can’t remember just now

Most every weekend over the winter, Richard and I measured, cut, sawed, glued, and pieced together my beautiful working space, figuring it all out as we went. And boy, oh, boy, did we create a magical spot for me to play – building my voice over business, making audio narratives and audio program notes and dreaming up new ventures like creating a podcast.

Once we find ourselves on the other side of social distancing/safely-at-home/quarantine/ lockdown, I’ll invite ALL of you over to check it out, sign the wall and even record your voice! In the meantime, come inside and learn how she came to be.
