      i’ve got a building that’s 24 x 36, 12 feet high on the sides and rising to 16 feet in the center. it’s made of metal, and it’s been sprayed with high density foam, and it’s got a wooden floor. no leaks, and a dehumidifier keeps everything nice and dry, so humidity isn’t a problem.

      my problem is soundproofing. i can double drywall the whole inside of the building and use green glue between the drywall. then of course, i’d have to deal with the echo, which would again be expensive.

      the question is whether i’d be better off building a soundproof room in the building vs soundproofing the entire building. most of what i’m doing is teaching from a classroom environment, and also making medical training videos with 3 people (patient in a bed, nurse, instructor). how much space do i really need for this?

      Divide the inside into office, break room, restroom, reception/waiting area, Production Room, Medical Room Set (larger than real hospital room due to camera and light setup), Classroom (allow room for video and light equipment here, too).

      Walls can be made of 2×4 studs on 2×6 top/bottom plate (stagger/alternate studs to make a baffle space for insulation.  Quality acoustical ceiling tiles.  Good lighting in ceiling and properly positioned for video.

      There are several good articles on this site as well as a Home Studio magazine available at your magazine retailer on how to build a home studio.

      i think my only option would be to use one corner of the building and put up a couple of walls. would 10 feet ceilings be appropriate? let’s just talk about the size of one room for shooting medical video with three people. is 20 x 20 sufficient?

      i’d like to find a way without using high end materials, which drives the cost up astronomically.
