Peter,
You are right about the spelling of the Battah family in Joliette, but they had many relatives in the Montreal area also. They did operate clothing stores and I think the Bata shoe stores.

The studio project is advancing, we will be installing drywall and soundproofing later today. It is a long and costly project that will be completed in stages. For now, we won't be soundproofing the ceiling for it is a suspended ceiling and a big obstacle is the way the electricity is done I can't close the ceiling without re-doing much of the previously done wiring.
A few months ago we made a series of triangular bass traps and we will eventually be making sound traps similar to the ones you showed.
The classes are given in my shop and the current semester ends this coming Saturday. I'm not sure when the next class will be for I am having a surgical procedure on the 14th, and I will need some recovery time.
Cheers,
Dan

@Danman1957 . Good morning. Actually we have no connection to the Bata shoe stores. A little snippet I copied from Wikipedia reads:

The T. & A. Baťa Shoe Company was founded on 24 August 1894 in the Moravian town of Zlín, Austria-Hungary (today the Czech Republic) by Tomáš Baťa

I am glad to hear that the project is coming along and do understand how costly an undertaking it can become. I am curious to see what your triangular bass traps look like. If possible, please provide pics at your earliest convenience. Peter

Peter,

I don't have a photo of the finished product, I'll take some soon, but here are a couple during the construction process.
I think we will build new ones or modify these. Bottom is 1/2'' MDF and top is 1/4'' Luan plywood. The top is not solid enough ! I followed a plan on the Internet, and I should have made them with the same top and bottom.

That fabric is a match to the paint on the walls, so you don't really notice the bass traps.
