Alright so I'm building a small studio in my garage, It's a day-by-day thing, once I start a project, I really can't take any days off without finishing them. Today it was just completely emptied, tommorow I will be scrubbing it so that I build over a clean surface. The area I'm working in is 10X11X8'4".
Here it is emptied out:
I'm just hoping I can get a nice sounding room that I can enjoy recording in without worrying about picking up unwanted noises in my takes.
hey doing the garage thing too... keep up the thread cause I need to see someone else do if first. Oh are you running it through the city or just keepn' on the down low. I just found out in my city one HAS to have a garage :-(
Three of the four walls I'm constructing are up! Building this has been really tiring. Tommorow I plan to finish up the fourth wall. Tuesday maybe
I'll get the insulation, then I have some time off till next weekend to wait for the electrical lines to be dropped.
Did you double up sheetrock on existing walls? Are you putting sheetrock on both sides of walls that you are constructing (would this cause triple leaf) I am getting ready to start my garage studio also. Thinking about hanging sound curtains between existing walls and walls being constructed. Any help would be appreciated.
Looking pretty cool! According to Alton Everest, you'll probably need some bass traps, as your space is about 900 cubic feet, a little smaller than the ideal 1500 cubic feet minimum. Probably nothing a few corner traps won't solve, but something to be aware of. You also might want to take get some nice diffusors, they may help with flutters, etc.
It's a big undertaking, I'm sure you'll have lots of fun!
