Thanx to everyone (so far) for their input. Regarding the ceiling...it looks like anything that will lower it is a bad idea. Actually, to be clear, I'd put the bottoms of the rafters at 6-1/2 feet, maybe a little higher...so the main reflective surface is a good 10 inches higher yet. My primary concerns are that the living room is directly above this room, and that the ceiling is ugly. What can I do to insulate the ceiling without lowering it too much? And, what if I were to suspend a very loosely woven fabric from the rafters...something with good acoustic transparency, but that would hide the rafters and insulation?
As to the walls...I'd planned on building some bass traps, anyway. I'll probably constuct some of JR's panels and try that first before I apply drywall or panelling.
I'd already planned to add a good-sized rug and dedicated AC.
Once more, thanx for everyone's input. Please feel free to comment further!!
