I Need Some Acoustics Advice For My Attic Recording Studio

I have a recording studio in my home, up in a building that is disconnected from my house (basically like an attic). The room is fairly long, it has a pretty good width to it, the ceiling height isn't very tall, and the shape of the room is that classic A-frame shape. As far as the sound treatment goes, I have some panels up on the walls and soon I plan on placing some bass traps and cloud panels for the ceiling. My dilemma right now is, my desk is in an awkward position right now and I've been trying to decide if I should turn the desk and place it differently in the shape of my room. I've attached a picture of where the desk sits right now, and another picture to indicate where I've thought of moving it to. I don't know want to overthink it because I know that my room can't ever sound like an industry standard recording studio space anyway, but I do want to get the most optimal arrangement for listening and recording in the space that I have. What's a good idea here?


(Please excuse the picture of the back room, it's a bit messy right now from some organizing and maintenance I'm doing, but in front of that wall with the window is where I've thought of moving my current desk setup to, and I would put more panels up in that room as well)

    Hmm...I kinda like the room, it reminds me of my room when I was 9 years old, in a good way, of course.

    It gives me indie rock studio vibes.

    Ahh...the nostalgia...

    As for the setting up the studio inside the attic, maybe this video can help.

    Let me know how it went, good sir!

    @Milos Thank you for the comment. :-)

    I do dig some indie rock vibes lol.

    I've actually watched that video before and I really like that dude's setup. He has his desk positioned in his room in the way that I'm interested in trying with mine. I'd have to rotate my desk so it's facing long ways in the studio.

    Good idea!

    After you finish your setup, try to record and mix something in it.
