Thanks for looking it over Alex.
On the HVAC, I plan to do the duct work, and then have the system (compressor, blower, dryer, etc.) installed. As such, the $3000 estimate and 15% contingency should be OK. (I hope!)
For the roofing, I'm going to have the trusses pre-made, and have a sub do the roof. (Typical composite shingle.)
I am planning on using this roof truss system:
A "Scissor" truss, just to aid in ceiling height.
I have a separate "fund" I'll draw from for new equip, cabeling, wall plates, basically anything studio related as opposed to "building" related.
I may have to draw on it too for some of the acoustic treatments.
Geez, it adds up fast!
