    I've been in a few of them & recorded drums in one before. They're best as a small control room kind of deal.

    Cool. Seems like a perfect little setup for an electronic/laptop iPad producer.

    Perfect for a Podcast Studio 🤔🤪

    Indeed, they're usually kitted out well as far as the acoustics go.

    Here is a local drummer in one of them:

    yeah,, only have to save up the other 88.000 dollars! you can buy a small terraced house here for that much... or 2 even ... in the rougher areas! :)

  • A friend of mine has his own studio in a shipping container. Cost him about $4k for the container, and another $16k to make it useable for music. That doesn't include gear, just climate control, windows, and finishing the inside to look nicer, etc.

    Acoustics and heat/cooling are still the biggest issues he still struggles with though. Even with a nice A/C unit, it gets crazy hot at times and all the metal and acoustic treatment hold in the heat for many hours after it's cooled off inside.

    Neat idea, but for $88k you could build something much better suited and more comfortable for recording.

  • This is why i love this forum. Wisdom and knowledge abound. 🙏🏼💕

    A custom shed might be cheaper and won't have as many heating or insulation issues. You can also probably get one built with windows.

    I can’t see Apple fanboys going for that...
