How much £££ to build a studio?

Quick question: Lets just assume i've got an empty shell of a building, approx how much to build a medium sized control room in there?

How do the figures break down people?

Basically i'm LIVING in a rented studio at the moment and its ok, neighbours are a bit gangsta... and noisy, kitchen / bathroom facilities suck, won't last much longer, just tryna get an idea of what my next move will be, will i make do studio-wise in a standard house/flat or will i try and find something a bit more industrial and take it form there?

Any thoughts?

You could spend anything starting at 10,000 thousand to hundreds of thousands, if not millions. It all depends on what you want. Do you have any idea of what you want? Also you may try asking the guy building the studio in Hawaii. I am sure he could help you out. He certainly has first hand experience.

Contract the heavy work commercially, hire "good buddy" craftsman who work for cash, DIY? Design will make a big difference.

Money vs. time/trouble. I'm assuming that you want it done soon? Figure out how much money you have, and hope it's more than £200K . Does this make business sense for you vs. investing the money and finding a better studio to rent as-needed ?

Studio building is usually late, costs more, or is feature-short of anticipated. Sometimes all.

Quiet studio HVAC requires someone with studio-building experience.

Best wishes.
