I'm Justin from the Netherlands with a question on sound isolation on walls.
Will I be able to directly screw a 2x4 stud wall to my exterior concrete walls when I am going to use glass insulation, genieclips, hat channels, 2x 12,5 mm drywall with Green Glue in between on those studs?
As I am not a construction expert I would rather mount the stud frames to the walls then create a free floating wooden box.
I understand the genieclip system decouples the walls and so creates a room in a room. Does it not?
Or do I have to use rubber wall achors to connect the studs to the walls?
I am building an attic studio for vocal & acoustic/electric guitar practice/recording.
And mixing demo songs in the box with two Yamaha speakers.
the room is 7 x 4 x 2,4 meters and is above the master bedroom on the third floor.
- 1 pitched (roof) wall
- 3 concrete brick walls. (one to the neighbours)
- floor made of armoured hollow bricks with a concrete top layer.
- Ceiling made of wooden joists
Outside traffic noise is constant at 55/60 db.
I've attached some pics below
I am thinking of building a 2x4 stud frame on all walls and in between the horizontal beams on the roofwall. And use Genieclips on all of them.
For the ceiling I want to put Genieclips directly on the joists.
For the floor I'm thinking of 10 mm QuitGround 375 Rubber Underlayment. I don't think I have the height for a floating floor. And I will not record live drums or bass cabinets.
Thanks in advance for the help.
