it's roughly 30 feet long, 20 feet wide with about 18'6" usable floor space, ceiling is maybe 14' at the apex.
on the other side of the wall in the first pic is a 2 car garage (which will no doubt become the drum room eventually, but first things first). on the other side of the wall in the second pic is this:
the house is probably 50' away. the closest neighbor is at least 70' away, probably more like 100'. from inside the house you can't hear the traffic at all. i'm just mastering, i'm almost never over 85db, so i feel like my isolation/soundproofing needs are relatively minimal.
this all just happened, so i don't have a plan yet, but my basic idea is to keep the room as big as possible and have tons of bass trapping as needed. i'd like to keep the ceiling joists visible, so i'm thinking a couple layers of drywall between the joists, then rockwool/703/fabric. similarly, layers of drywall between the wall studs, insulation, then interior walls. i'd really rather not have an interior ceiling, which i know defeats the purpose of having interior walls, but i'd really like to keep the ceiling height i have, and again, i don't think i need to build a fortress to keep from bothering anyone.
so before i go on any longer, what do you think? what would you do? is my thinking here reasonable?
also, there's a wood stove in the space. i'm not sure if i'd be insane to have a wood stove in a mastering room, or if i'd be crazy not to if it was already there. we're in new england, i've spent the last decade and a half in a huge freezing loft space. a toasty studio is pretty appealing.
thanks for reading this far. appreciate any and all help!
