A/C In Garage
It's very likely that you will think I'm crazy, but I want to ask this question anyway...
I'm looking at renting a house that's got a one-car garage. I'd like to use that space for an audio mixing studio, but this being Texas, air conditioning is an issue.
An idea I had is sort of cribbed from books I've read on soundproofing, which is to build a room within a room. Maybe create a 10x7 space within the garage that would be easier to air condition.
My question is, what wall materials would I use for such an enterprise? Gypsum seems to be cheapest, but not terribly well insulated. I've heard insulation board mentioned, but I haven't found a great deal of information on it online.
The idea is that once the room is built, I can put a portable A/C unit in there, say 8,000 BTUs, thus keeping the equipment at a reasonable temperature.
I'm curious to hear opinions on this (probably insane) project. Thanks!
