I am about to embark on a journey of building my own home. I am using a single lot of land and building an upstairs and downstairs and want to put the studio downstairs.
Of course, there are other things to go downstairs like the garage, laundry etc, but I wanted to know what the ideal size within those limits would be. I shoot weddings, and portraits (families included) if that helps. I was thinking since I normally use a 70-200, I would need considerable length to shoot full length.
I haven't done any plans as yet, but I am thinking 16ft wide, 30ft long and 12ft high would be adequate (once the wife lets me)? There would be no room for change when this is done as I will be using concrete so I really need it to be done right the first time.
What would be the minimum dimensions I could comfortably get away with, as well as the ideal dimensions for the studio?
