sand in the walls?
« on: March 19, 2003, 08:12:41 PM »
I'm trying to find an economical way to proof my garage for a very loud band.  I've read your other articles/posts concerning your suggestions, but I heard something interesting that I'd like to throw out there...  Has anyone ever heard of building walls with  regular framing and then filling the empty spaces between the studs with sand?  A friend recommended it to me, and it seems to make a lot of sense in terms of not costing $1000 in materials.  The only caveats I could foresee would be 1) later removal of walls is gonna be a mess and 2) would the stress of that much mass cause any structural issues with the drywall?
Any ideas?
