Nothing wrong with that. This is how I work, and I wouldn't consider anything else.

There's a lot of information in my Acoustics FAQ:

You might also find these articles I wrote for EQ Magazine useful:

20x20 hard rock metal acoustic music as well.

How high are the ceilings? Are you planning on recording drums in there?

If it is actually 20x20, you may consider building racks into a wall thrust out into the room by about 1 1/2 feet (or at least racks and bookcases covering one wall). You don't want a square room.
