Awesome site! I see no end to my reading. Is this the place to ask for people's advice on building a studio in a small space and small budget?

Brief summary:
We have two possible locations on our property to build a non-income producing studio. We would like to produce spoken word cds and eventually if we are able offer some amateur recording of mainly non-percussion instruments and vocals.

Both available spaces are approximately 4m x 5 m.
Can construct what ever I want, no building codes. But cash is limited and knowledge is even less available.

One space is a seperate wood frame garage with metal siding. Basically empty.
One space is inside of the first floor of a building with 60cm thick solid walls and concrete slab ceiling, BUT the ceiling height available to construct in is no higher to 2m 10cm.

I saw on Sayer's main sight the standard small studio design and it looks good to me, but I am concerned about the ceiling height in one of our locations. Also, I am wondering what types of cost is involved with paying someone like Mr. Sayer for a design.

American, living in Ukraine, doing non-profit work. I threw that last part in for sympathy :)

If this isnt appropriate for here, forgive me.Direct me to where, thanks all.

Hi Matt,
I think if you post this up in the studio design section you'll get a better response.
Also download google sketch up and draw up your space......it will allow people to get a better idea of your space. :thu:
