Minimum required space for home studio

How to do this, that and the other. Share, learn, teach. How did X do that? How can I sound like Y?

From what I've read, a square room isn't ideal. Better to have a rectangular space with the monitors pointing down the longer walls ... so 2x4 would be better (imho).
Hm, that's exactly how i did it... without much thought or consideration. :) I had my computer desk in a typical bass trap corner before though, and it absolutely sucked... horrible and inconsistent sound.
cube is the worst. fixed ratios of a cube are 2nd worst ( i.e 4x8x8) would be terrible. Again, folks seem to ignore ceiling height, but is an equal contributor.
If you have to ask, you can't afford the answer

We had a repair here recently, where we had to crawl into a crawl space, right below the roof, with loads of glass wool for isolation. We hardly understood each other. :D It's really wicked when there's no walls at all which reflect sound...
