Building a studio

I have a idea of making a isolated sound room with panels around my studio, for recording and mixing. The idea is to have 30-40 cm thick panels. 160 (high) x60(wide) panels which I will make myself!

Total size of studio is 2x 2 meters

Construction of pannels in order from outer to inner walls

wood 2cm thick
plastic rubber 5mm
3 layers of car isolation each 3cm thick
10cm thick foam bed
Studio foam(black) with spikes

Pannels surrounding the small studio as walls and roof

I don`t own my home so I need to make this portable

Should work great, but would you hear a noticable effect on the record considering drums,horns(15 tracks),strings(10 tracks) are recorded remote. Would be 30 tracks or so recorded in the studio.

I would love to hear ideas and thoughts from people!
Would it be worth it!??Just for the record

2x2x1.6m?! Thats reeeeeeally small! How tall are you friend?
Without knowing what noise reduction you are trying to achieve its a little hard to comment on the wall construction materials & whether they will work for you....I hope you don't get claustrophobia!
