I’ve made a few records in everything from cool houses to barns to a very strange shipping and receiving room on a fjord in Norway! I absolutely love recording in different environments but that also includes basically every studio I’ve been in because I just love recording music. 🙂
I’d say the biggest issue to look out for is bad electricity and/or interference. Even something like the neighbors flipping on a blender can be an issue, lights on standard dimmers can wreak havoc, etc.
