Wooden sheds, no matter how fancy, are totally unsuitable as studios unless you are happy with virtually no soundproofing. A much better approach would be a block built building on a concrete base. My studio shell cost a little more than the equivalent log cabin but not vastly more. Combine that with a DIY inner layer and you end up with with a very well soundproofed studio which can accommodate a band rehearsing in a quiet neighbourhood.
Well, hmmm, there are tons of people on the various forums that made real niceI studios out of sheds, of all different types. Some have done some soundproofing and others havenot. In my case, I don’t need much isolation because I’m out on a pretty big piece of property, away from neighbors.
I’m interested in the block building approach, though, so maybe you could explain a little more? How much did it cost?.... That type a thing. How big is it?
