With all the changes in my personal situation, the pandemic thing, I'm going to endup moving out of Paris to work in peasant territory in a smaller city to follow a new job.

Since I got comfortable earnings saved from my last job, I'm buying either a flat in said smaller city (Le Mans, that's where there's the 24 hours racing track) or I'll go the literal extra mile(s) and buy a house in the countryside somewhere 30 minutes of car commute from the office, if I can bash into my boss's skull that working from home is the way, heretic.

Which means, land and the possibility of building a shed to use as a home studio. It will still be used for recreational purposes and not in any professional way. So as a recreation I'm looking for sources on what materials to pick (Wooden wall coverings ? I see that everywhere), size arrangements etc. I won't build anything myself - I'll hire people for that - but just looking for what to do is fun in itself.
And as a side note for our imperial friends, sites and recommendations using metric are welcome. :p

One thing to note. Due to covid building materials are pretty scarce right now and it will takeyou longer to get construction materials. Lumber producers are not releasing a lot of products. And lots of people are wanting to do home projects since you cant go anywhere.

Please post up photos of your build. I love seeing that stuff!

Make sure no dimension fits evenly into another - a cube would be the worst - but 2 x 4 x 6 is still not great for example. I think theoretically the best dimensions would be ones that are hard to find any factors at all - such as 2 x 4.3 x 3.7 or something like that
Makes things a little trickier but avoiding 90 degree angles entirely too is the 'ideal' .
