"This Old House " sound proofing!
« on: October 27, 2001, 05:50:17 AM »
I live in an old house.. 1806 to be exact. the cellar is large rocks with mortar or it looks in some spots to be just stacked!! anyway it is underground on all sides with just two small windows, and a bulk head door. After studying your website for hours!! I can handle sound proofing the windows and the doors. Its the foundation that im not sure about? Should I hang the curtain like sound proofing or build walls away from the foundation? Thank You!!

Walls such as you describe should be just fine and need no soundproofing at all.
