I wonder what the true asking price really is? With the bids we've been getting on building our music room a house with an organ installed already looks *very* tempting.   Speaking of the music room, long time subscribers may remember my query about a year ago asking for advice on designing a music room for an organ. Among the suggestions was 2x6 framing on 12" centers covered with two layers of 1/2 or 5/8 sheetrock. So that's what the architect spec'ed on the plans. The first bid came in right around $170/sqaure foot! Ouch! That does include a small deck outside... but really! I may need to build it/contract it myself if I am to actually have a room for the organ.   The county wants about $3k in 'fees' before I can pick up the permit. I had to rename all the rooms in the house and call the music room a 'family room' or they would have labelled it a 'bedroom' and charged even more. If it was a bedroom I'd also have to have the septic system re-engineered. Got to love California...   The architect and engineer (yes, this is earthquake country) got about 4k between them. So it'll be around 7k before we even break ground.   That place in texas is looking better and better all the time...   ---john.   On Sun, 30 Sep 2001, Dick Beery wrote:   > Check out this listing on ebay... > > http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3D1637519279 > > -- > Dick Beery > > DIYAPASON-L: a Discussion list for owners and builders of their own > Residence Pipe Organs. > HOMEPAGE : http://www.diyapason.pipechat.org > List: mailto:DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:owner-DIYAPASON@pipechat.org >

I have even been through two pieces of = property and not a nail has been driven yet. As soon as the county saw = clear span trusses exceeding a standard 12x14 room, they get suspicious = and called for a public hearing on the issuance of the permit. Right now, = my permit has been on hold for almost a year because the neighborhood = association has deemed that a pipe organ would be a public nuisance and = they are opposing it.
