I've got some questions about treating my vocal/booth.

I'm planning on using the space for tracking quiet instruments
when doing basics and louder instruments that need super
isolation from the quiet ones.

Examples would include: Acoustic Gtr, Vocals, Marshall Amp

The space consists of the following

5' 2" x 6' x 6' 8" (ceiling)

While these may not be idea dimensions for a booth, that's
what I've got to work with. All the walls are insulated with a
double layer of 5/8" drywall, the ceiling is the same construction
and has a nice airspace above it detaching it from the existing ceiling.

There will be two glass window areas covering 2x3 and 3x3
areas in two of the four walls. There is also a door on the
wall shared by one of the windows.

That's the layout with a window on the left and front walls
and the door on the front wall.

I was thinking that I need to treat the two unubstructed
walls with 4" 703 as well as filling around the windows
and doors with the same material.

I'm not sure what to do with the ceiling. Would some
sort of diffussion be appropriate keeping in mind the
limited head room of the cieling itself.

I want to avoid a "chesty" sounding booth at all costs.

RPG makes some 1 thick diffusers Flatffusor & Binary Amplitude Diffsorbor
http://www.rpginc.com/ I have no idea what they cost, but knowing RPG they
may be pricey. Actually I don't believe RPG overcharges, the high cost is
because their products are very difficult to manufacture and most of them
work very well.
These thin diffusers may have a reasonable price, since their design allow
for mass production.
