Ah, sorry, my links will be no good to you then. Likewise my comments on planning permission. :)audion wrote:Oh, I just realized you are in the U.K. I am in the U.S. [Florida}.
Does anyone know of a source in the U.S. ?
There's no reason why you can't build a decent sound-proofed studio that looks like a shed - but the shed bit will only ever be a skin. Soundproofing requires mass and air-tightness. I know that's not a real word!
If you're starting in a quiet location, and you don't have to worry about the neighbours, and you're not looking for completely perfect isolation, then you have a lot more options. But the same fundamentals still carry. Your best bet would be either to buy a shed and then build a room-within-a-room inside it. Or to build a decent concrete/brick room and then put a wooden skin on it.
Have a gander through this thread (if you haven't already): https://www.soundonsound.com/forum/view ... 24&t=43047
It's a really good example of the challenges of building a properly sound-proofed room - it's also just a really interesting thread. :)
