I am about to start constructing a project to build a shed (kit bought) and convert it to a soundproofed rehearsal room...Id like some thoughts on whether you think it was work (allow me to play my drums without falling out with everyone)
12x10 Apex shed Reinforce the current frame with stud work timber Fill between the studs with 75mm acoustic mineral wool slabs Fix resilient (floating) bars across the studs Apply 1 layer of 15mm acoustic plasterboard Apply 1 layer of 2mm acoustic membrane (rubber) Apply another layer of acoustic plasterboard
This will be on all walls including doors
I will then add a floating floor and carpet.
Sound absorption panels will then be added. along with an acoustic vent for airflow....
Any thoughts would be very very welcome as id hate to embark on this and arrive at the end for it not to have been worth it.
I would definitely recommend a quick call to Custom Audio Design (http://www.domesticsoundproofing.co.uk/) who are a company that specialise in domestic soundproofing. They are a long time advertiser with DIY Doctor and we have always got good feedback about them.
