1. Go to Home Depot
2. Buy 2x4 Studs($2.00 each)
3. Build a Staggered studded frame, alternating the 2x4's on the top and bottom stud. This separates the inside and outside walls thus keeping sound out.
4. Purchase R13 insulation(Home Depot $11.00/roll) and staple it between the studs on your frame.
5. Create a "elevated floor" using the studs.
6. Install sound cover over frame and fire retardent drywall over sound cover(the more layers the better).
7. Be sure to leave space in frame for window.
8. Apply Auralex to walls.

Hope this helps some [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

-Don't forget doors, use 2@ heavy exterior doors, or heavy solid core office doors.

-Glass, I'd say to use 2 non-parallel 1/4" panels of glass. I'd stay away from double glazed thermal glass. It's too thin and might vibrate worse.

-ventalation, your going to need lots. One nervous singer can stink up a room that size in a jiffy. Can you imagine a Drummer? There is no easy solution for this one. I'm a producer of Isolation cabinets for sound gear and that is the hardest part, ventation without noise/hum/vibration.

-wire passage. It's very handy to have a hard wired in/out wall panel but expensive and difficult to wire. alternative, A block of rubber foam (8" x 8" x 6") that sits in the same size hole in the wall. The foam has slit in it to allow wires to pass through. The foam block comes out, feed the wires you want through it, stick the whole thing back in the wall.

-Floor, float it on rubber or Styro, double it up. drywall in between layers. Add bulk and density to it.

Hope this helps.

Sean
