I'd like to bring the level at 85db down to ambient, which is around 38db.
Playing live?

Kyle gas given you good advice. T/he weak points in your plan are window and the door. Kyle gave good advice on the window. About the door I strongly recommend rod's "superdoor" from his book "Recording Studio: Build it like the Pros" or similar built up. Be aware commercial door seals are expensive as are hinges to hold the mass.
