Garage into a studio.. soundproofing help?

Hi everyone,

I'm going to be converting a single garage into a recording studio and need help and tips for soundproofing it up. The garage is concrete built and has a single wood door which i will be using as the entrance into the studio and obviously a garage door at the other end. I will be changing the entrance door to a fire door as i know they are quite sound proof and build a partition wall directly against the garage door to help reduce sound from leaking out via that.

Any ideas on what i can do sound proof the walls and ceiling in the garage and even both doors themselves? I was thinking to just build a whole new room within the garage but it may cost too much.

I have attached pictures of the garage and a design.

The vocal booth is 4ft by 4ft and 7ft high and the desk is approximately 160cm long and 80cm deep.

Happy new year too!

Regards
Alex

okay if u r going to build a studio build one not trying to be rude
building a room inside a room is the only practiable thing to do using fiberglass insulation maybe even putting up rubber vinyl stuff over that then drywall then u have to acoutic treat your room think about lighting,electric stuff
I to going to do a STUDIO BUILD in a two stall garage

check the pic diary section great garage builds I plan on having a pro design it and me& a buddy will diy the actual construction I'm thinking at least 5k

Thanks for that, yeah ive been told to do that which is what i think is basically the best option. Need to wait on my friend whos going to get the insulation for me. I will keep you all updated with it.

Thanks
