This is probably overkill but I made a 3D model, so i could take my iPad 1:1 scale and walk around in augmented reality to see if it would work in the space.
Here is a video example of the AR:

Remove the old shed, concrete, washing pole and make a flat foundation. Grow some more grass.

Still need to run the cables in the walls, and do a little touch up paint, but its getting close to being finished.

Looks great, did you build the garden studio yourself from scratch, or was it in kit form and then assembled?

that looks really good -we recently got a garden room built professionally and for the foreseeable future it will be used as a garden room, there may come a time when it could be used as a cinema room. what steps did you take, if any, to reduce sound/noise outside the build?

There is a lot of timber - have you considered any sound treatments ?

The cabin is all insulated, and double glazed. when standing out side you can hardly hear anything, even when turned up really loud.

Had my electrician run outdoor sealed Cat6 cable from my router straight to the garden studio, and hooked up the power with a fuse box in the studio.
