I am soundproofing my living room myself, noisey neighbour problem.
I have build the stud wall, 2" away from the adjoining wall.
I have purchased accoustic mineral wool. The problem I have is; do I put the wool between the 2" gap i have created, between the main wall and the stud wall, or do I just put it between the batons of the stud wall I have created.
What will give a better effect. I have enough wool to fit inbetween the gap and inbetween the studs.
I await your replies as I am ready for this next phase of my DIY project.
The mere fact that you are installing another wall between you and next door will make a difference.
Providing you seal any holes in the existing wall and in the new wall it will make a difference to airborne noise.
Place the wool inside the frame, leave a gap between it and the existing wall.
