So we just had a baby and I can't continue recording loud bands in the basement. But I have an opportunity to get my own recording space in a large commercial building.The guy is building practice spaces and storage in the lower level. My control and live room would be on top of the existing office and bathroom with the possibility of recording in the big area.
So tell me? With this floor plan work well? Framing will go right up to the existing ceiling, which is heavy insulation (thick and like 50+ R value) between the attic trusses and covered with plastic. The rooms would be 7 feet high but there are no hard surfaces, just up through insulation into the attic. So the true height is much greater. We wouldn't be going for great isolation, as the building is pretty remote, I wouldn't record when other bands practice, and the main factor: budget. I know this is less than ideal, but it's this or probably nothing. Is this floor plan okay or is there something better with a not many angles (no coffin shapes)? Should I make the small room my control room or use the big one as a combo room and make the small one a booth?
