    Hi Rod, my name is David - the guy with the loud fan noise in nyc. My email is musegarden@earthlink.net. I'd like to discuss this further. Your advice was spot-on. I may want to hire you to help me with this problem. Much appreciated,

    Hi Rod
    I started this thread back a while and finally have the time and money to get going on this project, will be working on new vinyl soffits and trim and patching all holes, gaps etc from the outside with silicone and weather stripping etc and onto stripping the concrete floors and acid staining them the following week. As I get closer to doing electric and HVAC I have questions, one is about an exchange chamber, my building is freestanding so I altered figured 10.19 from your book to match my layout (rough and sloppy) I wondered if it is okay to post that altered figure here:

    or would you prefer I send you a dropbox link or email it to you directly? Please let me know and thanks for your help.
    Regards, Jim

    Hello Rod, I am a general contractor in NYC and have a client who would like to construct a space for DJ practice in a residential building. Do you offer design and or consulting services for such a project. Is there a method for ball parking the cost of such a project so as to not waste anyone's time? Thank you.

    Sorry I ment the perimeter where the the two walls meet. The seems are fine. The gaps in the perimeter where ment to be 1/4" gaps sealed by backing rods and noise sealant. So, again is there any way I can .salvage this first layer of drywall? Thanks Rod.

    the way im the guy who has 3/4 gaps between joints.

    Hey man. Just bought you're boom (2nd edition) from barns and noble and I know you're a busy man and your time is valuable but I I could just ask you 1 question and receive an answer I would be stoked!All im asking is I have a garage that is 920 sq ft with 12ft high ceilings that go up to a point and are supported by joists about 8 ft up. No insulation atm (tho I have tons of mineral wiol ready) just bare wood, concrete and alot of framing already done but I stopped and wanted to ask the master.If you had a 920 sq foot garage (filled in cement structure) with 12 ft ceilingsAnd you needed....1. Control/mix roon2. Live room (drum room)3. BedroomWhat would your dimensions be? I fear I may have made one too large or too small.Thank you for any input!**

    The more I've been reading your book and online threads the more I've realised how flawed their design is unfortunately. Thanks for saving us a very costly mistake

    I don't know who is doing your design - and what they may (or may not) have designed in the past...... however you may want to think about options - because this is the sort of thing that would make me a bit nervous if I were paying someone to design my space - and if they are a friend and are designing this for free - they sound really not qualified to do the design.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply Rod. I can feel even more confident in telling them it's not something I see the need for now.

    Hi Rod, I really appreciate all your input Ive found on here regarding studio construction and more specifically floating floors.

    Quick question, our church wants to build a small studio, and the studio designer is pushing real hard for us to put in a floating floor. I personally dont think it's worth the amount of money one costs. Cos the live room building is ground floor, has a thick cement floor, and isnt connected to the control room or other buildings. The designer is saying that it gives the room a more ambient sound, just wondering what you think? the room is 9mx5mX2.4m

    just finished reading your book for the third time and getting ready to break ground on my basement studio. Based on your recommendation, i'm going to go with the one large room approach (i have about a 15x25 area to work with). I have searched the web for any one room design ideas and have found almost nothing. Do you have any that are similar in detail to the multi room you use in chapter 10?
    thanks again for writing such a great tool for all of us to use.
