I am going to build a new purpose built studio at home. I'm thinking that the building will be 28x32 or maybe 28x36 with a garage on the first floor and studio above. I'll likely do a vaulted ceiling. The studio will support woodworking shoots as well as portrait/fashion and whatever few inanimate objects come my way. I'll likely have exterior stairs as well as interior though not decided yet. I'm planning a small office/storage room both for previewing/editing and for storing photo stuff to keep things out of any woodworking dust. Some things I know I want are a balcony to shoot from (and up to) and some different windows and window seats. I've not yet determined if the long axis will run east-west or north-south and which way the roof line and vault will run. Running the roof line east-west would allow some north facing clearstory windows which could be really nice as well as some taller west facing windows on the gable end. Architect wants the long axis and roof line to run north-south but it's my place so for once I get to overrule someone if I want. Any thoughts or ideas appreciated.
