Can wood frame construction dry up?
« on: September 20, 2004, 12:20:52 AM »
Hi,

I live in a co-op where you can hear every sound that the upstairs neighbor makes from heavy walking to drawers opening to just moving around.  My other neighbor said that the wood frame construction is so old that it has "dried up" the transmission of every sound.  The building is from 1950.  Can this be true?  Does any one know if this has any scientific basis or is just plain nonsense.  Thanks for your help.
