    Just about any room can be used for recording and mixing as long as it is treated properly.  Asbestos is nasty stuff and in general very expensive to remediate. There are lots of DIY examples of free standing vocal and recording booths.  A good solution Can be created with sound absorbing blankets for the AV industry, they are basically moving blankets.  I suggest you get the free app REW (Room EQ Wizard) and invest in a calibrated mic (under $100) to understand your room and any issues.  Lots on YouTube regarding acoustic treatment and I Suggest “Acoustics Insider”, very smart host.  Try to avoid corners for your desk and ultimately try to find the optimal location in the room.  Hope this helps.
