ALOT of money and I mean ALOT for a studio. If you want to turn a room into one, basics are soundproofing, wiring, patching, and getting good acoustics which is the main thing, but the gear you can jsut buy, so its not big deal. Get mics, pre-amps, mixers, and a analog to digital audio converter and a comp. some software and some sounds to record.

Don't you DARE cheap out if you're going to do your own studio. You can make a smaller studio to keep costs down.

Eggcrates work well for stopping unwanted reverb, but doesn't do much for stopping outside noise. This site has some common myths about soundproofing.
If you're serious about this, look into manufactured soundproofing. The black foam with the funny patterns in it works wonders.
