    For my bass gig we've got a 14x14 room in a dedicated practice space building. Vaughn, I think you were in that building one of the times you were up back in the day.

    For the guitar gig it's a much bigger room (like 25x25) with it's own control room for recording. Great space in downtown St. Paul... I actually used to rent the very same room about a decade ago in another band.

    Nice. We remodeled our house about a year and a half ago and that was one idea I had. We knocked down two walls and made what was a strangely shaped living room/family room/dining room layout into one big great room. My idea was to take what had been the family room part of it, and double wall it with a double sliding glass door and turn it into a 12x15 soundproof practice space. Whenever we sell the house we could market the space as a soundproof home theater. Sadly, there just wasn't room in the budget for it. Instead now it's just the computer desk and a play area for the kids with a bunch of empty space, enough for a baby grand piano.

    Thanks for the responses guys! Looks like it's all over the map in terms of who does what.

    Having a dedicated space that isn't used for anything else has been pretty convenient for us. The drummer just leaves some stinky practice kit (which sounds as good as any other drum kit to me...but what do I know about drums...) and just brings his symbols back and forth. Obviously we're not hurting for amps, so we've usually got those set up and ready to go. The bass player usually leaves a cab unless he has gig with his jazz band going on. So setup consists of plugging in, turning on the PA and amps, and we're good to go.

    When I built the our new house, I built a 16x25 Bonus Room that is know as "The Music Room".

    It's my man cave!
    If I thought I was going to live this long I'd have taken better care of myself!

    Yup, I remember the small room.

    Here's what ours looks like (plus a little photoshop work by our drummer). It's the warehouse for our singer's business.
