Yesterday we had a bit of a barn raising with some of the other residents here at Sietch22. The goal was to attempt to limit the amount of sound that passes between our unit and the one next to us (home of Studio Ogalthorpe).
The task at hand was to cut, glue and place some sound dampening tiles on our south wall. The end result is pretty cool looking wall. The acoustics in our unit have definitely changed, not nearly as live and boomy as it was before. We also noticed that the freeway noise is notably decreased (wierd?). We can also still hear the stereo coming through the wall, but hopefully it’s quite a bit quieter.
Here’s a timelapse i took of the process:
And a couple of details:
