I came across a website that allows you to design your own floor plan for buildings, it got quite adictive and I found myself designing my ideal band room. It was actually quite difficult to get a balance of storage space, at least 6 tuition rooms for the Academy, kitchen, bar and pool table! My finished design can be found here - bandroom
Ok, so I've used a radiator for a glock, a piano for the xylophone, an easel for the concert bass drum, a mirror for the tam tam and trampolines for the timps but it gives an idea.
The car parked in the garage at the rear of the building actually represents the bands trailer for carrying kit around, it can be loaded through the double doors without going outside!
What I couldn't get on the plan was some form of movable partitioning between the practice room and the 'relaxation area'. Ideally, this could be moved and the area can be cleared back for concerts with the pool table pushed into the room adjacent again through bi-fold doors.
Although this was done just for fun it is based on a plot of land that the band owns and is something that has been talked about for years.
I'd be very interested in what you would do, have I missed anything? Measurements have been guessed as far as how much room the band needs but I think it's about right.
Will apologise now for all the time you will waste over the weekend designing your own bandroom
