Soundproofing between floors in a manufactured log home
« on: November 28, 2008, 06:32:08 PM »
We have a manufactured log cabin and the noise carries through the house pretty easily.  If one is in our living room, guests in the upstairs bedroom, right above, can hear full converstations.  Since it is a manufactured log house, we can't really redo the ceiling.  Any suggestions? A rug and mat in the bedroom upstairs?  Many thanks.

The only suggestion I have short of doing construction,would be to put in wall to wall carpeting upstairs and use MLV w/ 1/4" closed cell foam underlayment beneath your carpet and padding.
This has to be wall to wall in order to achieve a reduction in airborne sound.

The next step from here would be to bring down the ceiling below and add a soundproof floating ceiling system.
