We bet the owners of this garden broadcast studio are reaping the rewards of having created a dedicated home studio! Designed and built by Outside In Garden Rooms, it was designed as a space to create and edit broadcast recordings.
With most of our broadcast news being recorded from home, at the moment, and the rest of us conducting virtual meetings using tools like Zoom for work, never has having a dedicated place to broadcast been so desirable!
Creating a dedicated home broadcast studio has many benefits. You can set up your perfect rig with lights, cameras and microphones, and leave them set up, closing the door on the room at the end of the day, in the knowledge that it will all still be in position and ready to use tomorrow.
With a dedicated broadcast studio, you can put a sign on the door (or lock it) saying that you are recording and know that no one is going to pop into shot! We have all cringed at those serious interviews where the kids come running into the room!
As the interior of a garden room is a blank canvas for you to make your mark, you can easily style your backdrop so that it looks professional and reflects your message.
Broadcast studio with acoustic plasterboard
Outside In Garden Rooms customer wanted to replace an old rickety shed that had become a dumping ground with a modern garden studio that could be comfortably worked from, all year round.
They chose a 3m x 3.6m building from Outside in Garden Rooms. This is a good-sized office space with plenty of room for a desk, storage and a sofa. As standard, Outside In Garden Rooms are highly insulated for comfortable year-round working.
In addition to the thermal insulation, sound block plasterboard was used on the walls and ceiling to give the studio an extra layer of acoustic insulation. This will make working inside the studio quieter and reduce any noise leaving the building that could affect the neighbours.
Prefabricated and transported by crane
Outside In Garden Rooms customer is based in rural Perthshire. Rather than put the studio together on-site, it was built in the Outside In Garden Rooms workshop in Glasgow, and then transported to the site by lorry and lifted into position.
A ground screw foundation system was installed prior to delivery day. This meant that the studio could be lifted off the lorry and manoeuvred into position. We know from experience that this can be a very quick process, and you get the full impact of the before and after transformation!
Once the building was in position, all that was left to do was to install the custom step to overcome the uneven ground and to connect the studio to the mains electricity supply. It was then ready for the owners to move into and start using!
