The goalMy goal is a one-room, budget-studio. I'll be recording and mixing in same room, with mostly me doing things alone. I'm planning it big enough for a trio with drumset, but no vocal-booth -at least not for now. Budget is tight, so it'll have to be a few compromises and DIY-solutions.
I'll often record vocal, acoustic guitar, some percussion and misc.
What isThe house is a shed, located on the middle of our plot, with trucks passing by at 60-70km/h 150m away, and occasionally some planes passing by. So, this means I have to to my sound-proofing well.
|Shed with planned sound studio in the left part.|
The hight is 1 1/2 floor. And the interior is currently a small garage, an isolated room and a room for firewood and tools.
Floor, walls and roofWalls: The outside walls of the shed are typically built with 2x4" studs, with "barn-clothing" (Norwegian expression, no: låvekledning).
Floor: The floor is one part concrete fundament, another part studs (2x4") on concrete poles with hardwood on top.
Roof: The roof is studs, some hardwood slats and metall-plates on top (yes, those that make most noise if raining)
1st floor: Studs with hardwood

- Please inform me if I'm using wrong words or if you don't understand. I'm not to good at building construction words in Norwegian, and worse in English :)
