SPL reading for new studio advice...

Hi all,

I’m building a garden studio, I’m currently in a 3 x 4m bedroom upstairs in a house. I would like to take an SPL Reading so I know what kind of isolation I will require when I build my new studio down the bottom of my garden.

I plan to turn my music up to the level I generally work at then take some readings, so -

Where should I take the readings? I read 3ft outside the room, so is the landing ok to take a reading from? any others distances or ideas here?
(When the studio is built, my neighbours fences will be about 2-4m away, there houses will be a good 20m away approx)

I have an SPL reader app on my iPhone, see pic, will that be ok to use?

Thank you for any help and advice
