Soundproofing my Garage - Chris Whealy

garage conversion constructionThe aim of the following pages is to show how I converted my garage into a sound-proof drum practice room.
In showing how I built this room, I am not saying that this is exactly how a sound-proof practice room should be built, but I am demonstrating a procedure that works.

I have carefully studied the subject of acoustics, so I am confident that the design described here will yield good results; yet at the same time, I have also seen areas where the design can be improved. Improvements aside, the finished practice room allows me to play the drums without annoying the rest of my family or the neighbours!

Chris has also published some awesome related data crunching capability in the form of technical excel files.

These will be available shortly.
