My mates got a wooden shed in his garden....hes a tit so thought it would be a laugh to put an "extension" on it with bricks....hahaha makes me laugh hard to this day. Anyway he built all the breeze blocks and bricks with insulation in the middle and put a window in. Thats as far as it got, the roof was hard to do and it looked shit anyway, really damp in there.

That hasnt really helped at all, just thought Id share a story. It wont be an easy job thats all I can say.

You thinking about doing it yourself? If your not a builder, or at least have some skills in that sort of area, dont try and make anything out of blocks/bricks, it'll end in tears.

Good starting point would be a just decent sized shed (metal or timber), and then like you say, you can frame out the inside with studwork, insulate the cavity between frame and shed, double board both sides (with yet more insulation in the actual studwork). Pricey job whichever way you go about it though.

The key to sound isolation is a lot of mass, usualy with changes in density (easiest way to think of it is an obstacle course for the sound to travel through, the more steps there are, the more energy the sound will need to take away from itself to travel through, resulting in less sound at the other side)

Windows are another problem (if you were planning on having any) as keeping the sound in requires very thick glass, and usualy more than one layer of it, which again, is expensive.

Yes, I have a brick shed in my back garden with all of my music equipment. Unfortunately I can't help you with how to build it as it was already there when I moved in.

what type of roof is on it and does it hold the sound well the shed? when i build it it doesn't need to be ultra quiet just at a level where the neighboors wont wine like little bitches when im rinsing the finest of dillinjas sub low basslines

Its a slate roof. The sound proofing is none existent as I got a letter from the Environmental Health about noise pollution after a late Thursday night party I had a month or so ago.

your probably the most qualified person here to know what to do mate....people here are only qualified to waffle.

If you want my advice I think you should...get some bricks and make 4 walls thus making the structure. Then get a roof and put it on top, you will find the top by standing in the middle of the said 4 brick walls. Whack it on there somehow, you know, that no more nails stuff really works wonders cant recomend it enough. get some carpet in there and maybe a rug. Use maddie as she will come in as a perfect little rug to wipe ya tootsies on when they a little dirty. staple loads of pillows to the walls and roof from the inside, and then what ya wanna do is fry up 2 large eggs and whisk in the flour SLOWLY!! if you do it quickly you will get more than what you want. Add fresh beetroot, preferably from a old relative who loves beetroot. i cant get enough of it myself, its like that time I went to Spain and found that girls braclett on the beach. The three holes at the back are what you are looking for, once you have correctly inserted the wire through two of the holes, put your old boy in the middle one and you have reached total acomplishment and satisfaction.

Now sit back look at your shed and spark a dooby (optional)

Definately go for making it all from timber then, shed inside a shed FTW. Done well it will isolate the sound more than enough for what you want, and still be more pocket friendly than building it from blocks/bricks.

im going to tell you one thing, before you put all your valuable shit in their make sure you got some good security or a loud alarm to stop people breaking in. i learned the hard way when all my tools, a bike, parts for the bike and a motorbike got taken. i was wounded.

but on the other hand we got the insurance company to pay out a bike and many many tools.
