A dream that I’m sure many of us have is to one day design and build our very own soundproof recording studio. I was fortunate enough to realise this dream for myself back in 2017 when me and my family moved house. Our move forced us to also relocate my recording studio business. Sadly the property we moved into didn’t have any extra space for me to move my studio gear into which meant the only option we had for our new studio was to convert a large shed at the end of our garden.
A lot of research, time and money went into getting this build right. My goal was to have a soundproof room within a room studio built within the empty garden cabin. I wanted a space that could keep sound from within the studio from transmitting through to the outside world and vice versa. Getting the soundproofing approach right was critical as if I got it wrong I would have wasted a lot of money.
This article includes all the research I put into my studio build along with a walkthrough video that shows you how we built the studio step-by-step from start to finish.
