Studio and Control Rooms:
Dead Aunt Thelma’s is a Russ Berger Design Group facility. The Control Room with adjoining machine room is 400 square feet and was designed with angled front walls to establish a reflection free zone. The approximate 300 square-foot main studio is joined by 104 and 48 square-foot isolation areas. We also have a lounge and private backyard area for your comfort. Thelma’s is, by far, one of the most comfortable, user-friendly rooms in the Northwest.
