So many of the houses coming on the market at the moment have these studio thgs at the end of the garden - which otherwise would have been a decent size. EG house and house 2
Why?! Do enough people now work from home that it's worth blocking off 1/3 of your garden for one of these? I saw one house where the studio was a home office with shower, presumably so they could say the house had 2 bathrooms because of course everyone likes to walk to the end of the garden in their dressing gown...
We are about to move and dp is going to have one built for his music studio which is currently housed on our landing and all the stuff drives me mad! Plus he can sing and 'jam' with his mates til his hearts content
We are about to move and the house we are moving to has one. Strangely, I would say at least 50% of the houses we looked at had them! I agree it is weird. And most of them were used as glorified garden sheds with loads of random junk in them.
But anyway, since we are inheriting one I am hoping that MrP will do what noddy's DP is planning on and put all his music gear in there. We are yet to have this conversation. When I brought up the possibility about one of the previous houses he said 'Oh no - the atmospheric conditions aren't suitable and it would damage the instruments.'
I think it might be worth spendinig a bit on insulation and windows just to get these damn instruments out of the house. Or we'll end up doing what the current owners do and use it for storing garden toys and the tumble drier.
Fanny we are going to have to spend £ on insulation and locks in order to make this work. Dp wants the studio to 'play' in but I know he would like to bring all the tat in and not leave it out there which to me defeats the object. It is all or nothing for me otherwise I want it to paint in! He also maintains his guitars are works of art and should be on teh bloody walls
We've looked into the glorified garden shed thing too. I saves the expense of having to go up a bedroom when what you really want is a home office. (Haven't got a house or garden to put it in yet though).
kansas - that's an entirely legitimate reason, given that your DH work's from home. It's the ones that people seem to have stuck on to make themselves a guest suite or some such that make very little sense to me. Thromdibulator you have a good point about not losing a bedroom as well.
Maybe IABU then thinking that they're a frivolous unnecessary thing!
