Room Within A Room (RWAR)

When you want to sound-proof an existing structure, one of the most effective ways of achieving this is to create what is known as a room-within-a-room. This principle means that within the existing room, you build a second, smaller room whose floor, walls and ceiling are mechanically isolated from the floor, walls and ceiling of the outer room.

This is the principle that I have (mostly) followed during this project; however, for reasons of construction simplicity and speed, I did not implement the exact room-within-a-room principles. Consequently, I had to apply a later fix to the room construction. Since the fix was not too costly nor time consuming to build, I'm not too worried about not having implemented the principles as strictly as could have been done. Having said that, it is always better to avoid the creation of problems, rather than to have to fix them later
