    am i going about this all wrong???

    to anyone who can help...

    i just moved into an office 10'3"x 15'6" and a ceiling height of 12'6".
    i want to set the room up for recording drums, the floor shakes with every footstep, so i'm considering building a raised floor (something i read about in a magazine) also i will have to divide the room so i can use the rest of it as an actual office (with a desk and bookshelves)

    Question 1: should the drum tracking area be larger than half the room size to get a better sound, and if so, should i use some kind of partition... like an office cubicle?

    Question 2: the ceiling is a typical office ceiling... suspended ceiling i believed shared by another 2 offices... any suggestions on soundproofing???

    the big problem is i don't have much money to spend...

    +1 on that. The people over there are very helpful and patient.
