My biggest advice to anyone building a studio space is if there's anyway to do it, include a window. Even if you have to plug it up when you're making loud sounds, give yourself a window to look out of. It will restore your sanity. It will make long editing sessions more bearable. It will inspire you when the lyrics just aren't coming out right. Windows are wonderful. Here's some windows at Hallowed Halls recording studio (where Astro Audio PDX is hiding)
