Cork Oak on the walls of a Studio/Rehearsal room

Hello There everyone!

My guitar player is building a small studio/rehearsal room.

It's rectangular...it's sort of a basement...it has a garage on top of it... One of the walls has "ground" on the outside... because the terrain is not leveled.

Well...he's thinking of covering more of it with dirt...making it more of a basement....

On the inside, he's thinking of using pladour... for thermic insulation...and cork oak on the walls... is this a good choice? We've seen it in studios, i think...Here in Portugal it's quite cheap...we are the world's number 1 producer of it, i think...


One other thing, what should he do about ventilation? AC is $$$ out of the question....

How about the solution they present on the end of this page ?

Oh...one final question...for now, he will use an aliminum door...It will be replaced in the future...but...what should he use to cover it? Wood? Cork Oak? Some other stuff?

Thanks a lot
