I have another barn-shaped-roof shed that has different dimensions than the one I had planned to build my studio into. This one is 16 ft. long X 14 ft. wide X 12 ft. tall. It’s still not a 14 ft. ceiling but everything is further apart. Would this room be better than my previous one to build out as my studio?
I am reluctant to use this one because it’s about 20 feet closer to my neighbor’s house. It also has a small window in it. I suppose I could always remove that if I had to.

Hi Kenny, Size and volume are the two most important variables we must consider in any audio room application. Noise transmission issues can be dealt with in the structure itself. Glass is the worst surface you can have in any audio room. It is a necessary evil in most professional applications and great care and design must be used to minimize the impact of its surface area.
