The commonhouse at Alchemy Farm is a barn retrofit. For the dining area we had the choice of a larger auditorium-type space, over 1100 sq ft and 14 ft ceilings, and a smaller living-room with just shy off 8 ft ceilings. We are using the smaller, cozier area as a dining room, but would like to put skylights in, and have considered lifting the ceiling. Sound wasn't the issue. The bigger room is super-insulated, once set up as an auditorium and has pretty good sound absorption. It just feels too large, almost warehouse-y. Your mileage may vary. We are just starting common dinners, but have potlucked in the room for many years. Our group size is currently six families, and we are only half full.
