I am going to convert my barn into my studio to get out of my basement.
It has a 14 foot ceiling up to the loft.
My plan is to clean and stain the joists and leave the loft floor flshowing. It is 1-inch Pine lumber. The ceiling will be a vaulted shape as it slowly tapers from 14' in the middle where it's flat to 8 foot where it meets the walls.
Will it be a good idea to leave the wood ceiling at that height and hang clouds or would it be better to cover the ceiling with drywall?
My thinking is leave the wood ceiling and the joists exposed. Would t the joists help "diffuse" the sound?
By the way.....it'll be used used to record acoustic instruments, vocals, and drums.
I'm fortunate to have such high ceilings but I want to treat the ceiling correctly. (Flooring will be vinyl planks).
