My Studio is a nice space that is separate from our main house. I have two work surfaces, and plenty of storage space. The only drawbacks are the lack of good heat, and no running water. I heat with an electric space heater or a kerosene heater, and I run back and forth to the house for water.
It is working for me!
Oh, and yes, the string of lights are bass. My FIL gave them to me for Christmas a couple of years ago.
