My current home studio is set up within one of the rooms (office) in my house. I had put in reasonable soundproofing and acoustic treatment to manage the sound coming in and going out.
It serves me well for the purpose I had it for.
The time is now to grow and upgrade my home studio into building a Professional Home Studio from the ground up, literally.
I have been contemplating on the idea of moving out of the house into a more suitable arrangement. A place big enough to allow a full drum set to be played and recorded, or a small band to come in and be creative and record songs and albums. A design that will allow me to have a live room, as well as a control room, not forgetting toilets. Hot Espresso and cup-of-tea over some song mixing session chats sounds nice too. All this, without annoying the neighbours with any loud noise of course!
Such a major (well, for a home studio setup) project requires lots of planning, research and finance to pull it off. But one must start somewhere, somehow. No option within the house, so I look at my backyard…
Away from the house, yet close to it. Outside, so other members of my family are not disturbed by the loud music and noise.
I can setup the studio however I wish, and it will have no effect on the house we live in. Plus, I get back an office or a computer room in the house.
That’s the solution!
On to research and planning.
