Im considering moving my studio space to an old shop/shed behind behind the house. How did this work out for you? Pros/cons? Any advice on how to go about it, and things to watch out for?

It really depends on how much sound isolation you need - how close are the neighbours, how much noise you want to make, how much noise can potentially leak in.

Acoustic treatment is very cheap and easy to do but isolation [what people tend to call 'soundproofing' which is a misleading term] costs money and requires planning.

I don't know how well mine has worked yet because I don't have the doors sealed. I'll let you know.

I would advise you to get to know this site very well:

And once you have worked out your budget - double it for the actual figure it will end up costing you.
