This is sort of the idea I had with my 'refridgerator crate' idea. Back in our old drug store, they had 2 telephone booths. And unlike those of recent years, these had a seat built in where one could get off their feet if talking for long periods. They had to be about the size of a small shower stall, and once you dialed your party, you could sit down and relax. The dang things were pretty sound resistant because someone could be loud in the one while the other was relatively quiet. There was a light, a ventilation fan (stores weren't ACd back then), and a shelf. That's where I got the idea. And while they were full height inside, I didn't see this as an issue. I practiced trumpet in it, so harmonica would be a wash. I haven't seen a booth like that in 50 years.
