My band recently commandeered a garage, shown here:

We're looking to do it up a bit, as much that we can nearly live there, or just have a place good enough to rival the bat cave.
Any suggestions? We already have a kettle with tea cups stole from cafe nero, a star wars poster, and a small trampoline (that was already there)

Edit: We found a painting in a skip today +1 classy point

you probably wanna clean it out a bit, soundproof it, and install a minifridge.

Sound proofing would be a good idea, as we can be heard from the corner shop. But erm.. how?

TS doesnt say anything about needing sound proofing lol.

My suggestion is extend the drummers kit using anything you can find. Thats always a creative laugh. Use lamps and hang stuff from the roof above him.

A large industrial fan too for that windswept look and general cooling when jamming.

Disco lighting!

soundproof your garage my hanging stuff on the walls.. thick thick blankets, carpet scraps, bubble wrap, old clothes, the neighbor's dog... anything! just make sure there are no spaces in the soundproofing or it defeats the whole purpose.. my band has moving blankets hung from the ceiling over the garage door so that it doesn't act like a giant drum head.. lol.. you can see it in this video http://youtube.com/watch?v=XVITf1FMYmo it's the big blue thing in the back left...

you should also get a lava lamp, box fan, drink fountain, girls, and a hamster

Glue egg cartons over every inch of wall, and on top of the egg cartons, put some cheap, but think material like drapes or something. Also, some foam (sponges also work quite well) on the door would be a good idea.

I think most bases are covered by this epic feature:

1. Clear out all the crap you've got around the place, totally strip the place bare.

2. Go down to your local carpet place(s) and ask for as many offcuts as they can spare (make sure you tell them its to soundproof a jam room for drums, else they'll think you're selling the bits on or something silly) You shouldnt have to pay alot, if anything, i got all mine for free.

3. Sort out your electric points, amps need juice, so do your radiators (for winter) and fans (for summer).

4. Lay carpet over EVERTHING, soundproofing is fairly straightforward, but easy to do wrong (working in the building trade i know this firsthand).

5. Everything else you'll figure out, i put a bunch of shelves, a fridge, tv and uPVC doubleglazing as well as rockwalling all the cavities. My jamroom is awesome
God and Country are an unbeatable team; they break all records for oppression and bloodshed.

It already has a few, we already practice in there. But soundproofing, do you pretty much just stick as much insulating material as you can to the walls?
