Drew the short end of the straw in the home purchase a few years ago...no basement or dedicated room for HT. So, I am stuck having to watch TV in the living room with a headphone setup. But, my overactive 8 year old insists practicing karate in his room when I watch TV. The impact of his heels is felt in the living room and it's driving me crazy.
House has a crawl space and I am going to close it off soon but before I do, I am going to install some conduits for future wiring projects. While I am down there I want to put something on the bottom of the floor to cut down on noise transmission. I have looked in mass loaded vinyl but that is way too $$$ for the area that needs to be dampened. Not sure what I can do besides the vinyl. I've looked into rolls of recycled rubber but it's still very pricey. I'm looking to have to dampen/proof the underside of a 1600-1800 sq. ft. home.
Any and all advice/help/suggestions are greatly appreciated!
In search of my next cold one,
