Title: Soundproof Generator Shed
Post by: slyly on December 16, 2018, 02:14:17 AM
I am going to be adding a small "generator room" to a detached outdoor shed.  This addition will be built from wood and match the design of the shed and house.  What is the most cost-effective way to insulate this new addition to reduce the sound as much as possible?

Thanks

Use our 1/4" mass loaded vinyl and a layer of 1/2" cement board (hardie backer) not duroc.
seal this thing like a fish tank with acoustic caulking.
insulated the cavities.
and most important , make sure the door weights the same as the walls.
7-8 lbs sqft.
