I had a control room once that was about 9' x 10'. It even made yours look big by comparison. I didn't have room for ANY chairs. Honest. I had two stools. It was a tape library/control room/dub room/studio. Even had an upright piano in it. And three tape machines (1/2" 8-track, two Revox A77s). It was tight.

I had the studio window (once I expanded and had a studio space) to the side.
