soundproofing a small room without losing loads of space?

is it possible to soundproof a small room without losing a lot of space?
i have a spare room and i m thinking to use it to record drums or electric guitar etc. the problem is that its small : 13ft L, 11W, 10H, and i wouldnt like to lose a lot of space with a thick double wall, all walls are made of bricks and concrete so i guess thats a good starting point. The way i m thinking of doing it is to add a floating floor, 1 layer 2/3 inch of plywood standing on rubber, then build a "box" (room) standing on the floating floor made with plasteboard (1 layer), and fill the gap between the two walls with rockwool, do you think that will work?...well i m not that good describing things, so here s the drawing,
so basicaly that way i will lose around 2,5 inches from each surface, do you think it will worth doing something like that? any other recomendations? thanks

hi, the floor is tiles on concrete and the room is in the ground floor, so underneath is just gound. i guess i could leave the floor as it is, but then wouldnt i have sound leaking in the control room?
