Vaulted ceilings or angled ceilings vs. flat ceilings.

In my search for a house with the goal of creating 2 large rooms (live and control) with high ceilings, the most common style in my area and price range would be a Ranch and to a lesser degree a Bungalow.

Within the Ranch style houses I can usually get above the 8 foot ceiling, but the ceilings are usually vaulted or angled to the apex. In some cases, I’d have to say, the height can reach 14 or 15 feet. Sometimes with trusses and joists exposed. I really like the Ranch style as the their floor plans will usually allow for creating large rectangular footprints, and I kind of like the trusses and joists as they’re kind of vibey,…

…but that being said…

Generally speaking, am I making things better or worse when compared to a normal 8 (or 9) foot flat ceiling when all else is equal? Am I doing “no harm” with this sort of architecture?

For context, the goal is to have a project studio that can achieve professional quality recordings (live instruments/vocal) and allow a professional mixing artist to work on site.

More room volume can be obtained with a peak roof. Try and get a 11′ peak.

Oh, I like the sound of this! It greatly increases my options. Yes, 11′ at the peak should be obtainable if not more.
