I recently had a studio upgrade. I used to do a lot of work in the house and all the "dirty" work, like soldering, in the garage. But I slowly started taking over the garage and claiming a lot of that territory, while also complaining about any other messes in there that weren't mine. This resulted in the creation of a new space! My partner built me a room within the garage.
With all my stuff removed from the den, that freed up some space for my photo booth. It's a big fat mess right now.
Check out the studio spaces of my friends. You can see I'm a lightweight in the tool department when you see what they all have !
