Default Drum Room Remodel

So I've been busting my @ss for the last couple of months on my garage/drum room. Too much sound was getting into the house and annoying the wife...never a good situation, even with a very understanding spouse. This is not up to BrundleFly specs but it has turned out nicely and both of us are pretty happy with the results. Still a small amount of work to do but finished enough that I can show it. http://s24.photobucket.com/albums/c8...oom%20Remodel/

Nice work. I guess that garage door is your biggest issue at this point?

Thanks guys! The garage is roughly 10' wide and 18' deep, 9' ceiling. I did put seals on the garage door trim but it's not air tight. I plan on building an outer door keeping the roll up in place. We are on a corner lot so only one neighbor next to us. I've been playing in this space for years now with no complaints from the neighbors but trying to make it better anyway.

Yes, very secure. The garage door is locked from the inside. The door to the room from the inside has a deep deadbolt and a handle lock.

I've got to say something about the Green Glue used inbetween the layers of sheetrock. I read tons of articles on this stuff and other solutions prior to purchasing because I was skeptical about it. It was expensive for one, just under $1000 US for the 6 cases of glue and the case of sealant, but the stuff works!

I added two layers of 5/8" sheetrock to all walls and ceiling. On the back of each sheet of rock I applied 2 tubes of Green Glue. Once the first layer was up I sealed all of the seams using acoustic sealant. Then added the second layer of sheetrock and Green Glue. The second layer was then taped and textured prior to painting. Once again, this worked wonders reducing the amount of sound that escaped the room, so much so that the room was really "live" inside, like an echo chamber. The sound panels have calmed it down considerably. I didn't want to completely deaden the room so some of the surfaces weren't treated.

When you say 2 tubes on each sheet...are we talking standard 4x8' sheets? That seems like a ton of glue. Is that the recommended amount?

I ask b/c I want to build a quiet room when we buy a new house.

Hi Mark,

I was right in the middle of their recommeded amount. A "heavy" application would have been three tubes per 4' X 8' sheet....really after putting this stuff on, I think that would have been overkill. The minimum amount they recommeded is one tube per 4' X 8' sheet.

Thanks. I'm trying to gather as much info as I can. This is helpful.

Steve, nice job! How easy was it to make and hang the sound panels, and what is the material you put inside them?

Thanks

Hi HMNY,

Not hard at all. The material inside is Owens Corning 703...rigid fiberglass insulation that is 24" wide and 48" long by 2" deep. You can buy this stuff by the box, (box of 6 panels) for around $70 to $80 a box. I made 1" x 2" frames just slightly larger than the fiberglass panels to give a tapered look to the panel when wrapped.

Once the frame is made I used muslin fabric to back the frame. The fabric covering is a Guilford of Maine product I purchased from http://www.fabricmatestore.com/c-7-g...-of-maine.aspx

There is less expensive fabric available, but I wanted the panels to look nice. The material I bought is the FR 701 panel fabric.

It takes just less than a yard of covering fabric per 24" x 48" x 2" panel. I would lay the covering fabric on the table. Put the fiberglass panel on top, then the frame on top of the panel and staple the covering fabric to the frame. There is a good video tutorial of how it's done here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyYUpkpL0gw I made the smaller bass traps by cutting one 24" x 48" fiberglass panel in half making a 12" x 48" x 4" bass trap. Those are the panels in black.

That garage door looks insulated, so you should be OK. Ya may wanna bash away while a few friends stand outside at different distances to check the volume. If it's tolerable (in my definition not being able to hear you play from INSIDE a neighbors home) then I wouldn't bother building anything in front of that garage door. I've seen a few people do that only to regret it should the door need repair/replacement in the future. I just decided that I'm gonna hang a packing blanket in front of the window in my drum room to help deter the sound. I've had NO complaints since I brought my drums indoors.

Like any work in progress I needed to add some finishing touches. One of them was a nice gift from my sister.

[IMG][/IMG]

Next was to hang the last couple of sound panels and wall mount the flat panel between them to give me room on my desk.

Finished for now and the room sounds pretty decent!

Nice church man. I'm liking the non parallel walls. Clean and tidy too. Almost too clean, it could use some various and sundry gear lying around to complete the look. I wish you much drumming progress and many happy returns.

LOL, Xero...this took months, and much frustration not being able to use the room. Can't tell you how happy I am to be able to get back in the shed.

I can see that you did a great job, and it wasn't a weekend thing. Be proud of your work mate, and shred those drums :)

Just curious if you did "room in a room" or are the walls "connected" to the existing structure? Doing the same thing now in my garage, but room in a room. Will be a smaller space but hoping the air space will compensate for some of the layers of drywall, etc.

One of my old bands used to rent a rehearsal studio in SE London. A lovely, big room with all the fittings - it was great. The best thing was the discovery of the motorised disco ball on the ceiling. Many hours of fun were had with that - we just turned off the lights and played. It was excellent.

Lovely work, Steve but I second the Mayor. Disco ball! Post-haste!

Disco ball! why didn't think of that? Love it. Honestly, the light fixture will need to be replaced....just not quite enough light and the fixture isn't rated for higher wattage bulbs. I won't be able to do any study with the disco ball going but it sure would be fun.

shambo- I did this over the existing sheetrock. I didn't want to loose any more space and near silence outside of the room wasn't my goal. This did work well enough that my wife can watch tv in a room 20' away and not be disturbed while I'm bashing away.
