We sealed the cement slab, put down a heavy mil vapor barrier, used the U-boats under the joists and filled the cavities with conduit, sand and rockwool. We then put down 2 layers of 3/4" hardwood sheets at 90 degree offset with green glue in between. On top of that was 1/4" rigid fiberglass and then a floating laminate 3/4" Bellawood flooring.

We got the "Roxul" rockwool at R-Factor in Woodinville, Wa We used 250 bags!
