making a booth inside an office that i can dissassemble later
« on: September 09, 2011, 11:29:21 PM »
I am making a booth roughly around 8 by 8 ft
i have  offices  next to me and an outside wall on the other ,underneath is a shop but i dont think i will need a floor  but not sure
i am using to practice woodwinds ,sax trumpet etc and poss give lessons...there is a provision in the lease about if i disturb neighbors so i want it quiet

i need to be able to disassemble it later so it can be an investment when i move into a house,for now this is the best i can do.

so should i use screws and hinges to connect the panels

i was going to use 2 by 4s  with a nail gun and use the insulation materials recommended on here but instead of nailing everything maybe i should use screws and hinges

Thanks for any info

i will need to purchase materials as well

You have a lot of options, it would be best if you give me a call when you have time and we can discuss the particulars of your project..
There is a lot to take in consideration when doing a portable unit. ie: door / window?/ ventilation / assembly and dis-assembly based on seals. etc.....

for a portable one you can make yourself.


Use for Sound Recording (Voice Over Booths, Vocal Booths, Drum Rooms, etc…),
Broadcasting (Radio, TV, Commercials), Practicing, Simultaneous Interpretation, Audiology, Instruction, Equipment Testing, Karaoke, Noise Containment, Etc…

Easily assembled/disassembled.

This sound control Iso Booth has a transmissibility class of 29, far better than sheetrock walls! (Can hear conversation). When installed within another enclosure with good sound blocking such as a room or garage, STC can be over 50! (Can’t hear loud shouting!)

Blocks sound in/out.

The standard Iso Booth inside size: 3’6″‘X4′X6′ high.

Use as a music instrument practice room or a quicky recording studio.

Folds up. Quickly portable. Assemble one, rent to your friends!

Sound Control Iso Booth Assembly Drawing

Materials That Are Customer Supplied For the Home Built Iso Booth: Unit is assembled from 4′ X 8′ panels of “Sound Deadening Board” or plywood from your local builders supply and with our 2″ thick sound absorbing/blocking closed cell foam (Purchased from us) installed inside. (Adding MLV to the outside of your Iso Booth will increase the sound blocking if the edges are carefully fitted and sealed with acoustical caulk).

Assembly: Customer supplied. Hardware store hinges facilitate breakdown and re-assembly.

Electrical/Lighting Supply: Customer Supplied (An extension cord will do).

Ventilation: Customer Supplied. (A fan, if needed).

This soundproof room Iso Booth can make voice-overs or instrument practice practical if enclosed within another room with good soundproofing qualities!

Need to block sound down through the floor? Use several layers of MLV under your booth.

This version of the Do-It-Yourself Iso Booth was developed from a smaller version used to quiet pumps, motors and small generators as shown here.

We also supply professional commercial ISO sound booths.
