I need 100% soundproofing! Office complex!
« on: January 05, 2006, 01:06:00 PM »
I am going to be renting a 300 square foot office in a large office complex for use as a rehearsal studio for quite loud bands! I have lots of friends all willing to help me DIY it so we will not pay for labour.



The original idea, as we are completely clueless, was to build extra walls, ceiling and a raised floor with wood and pack them full of rockwool. From what I have read on this and various other sites, that isn't too smart an idea.



I'm now thinking - sheetrock, acoustic caulk, lead lined sheetrock, space with 2x4 studs and some insulation, sheetrock, acoustic caulk, lead lined sheetrock? And same kind of deal for floor and ceiling?



I have no idea what I'm talking about though so if anyone knows the best way of getting the place completely soundproof for a reasonable materials bill then I would be eternally grateful for their advice!  ::)
