Today I started gutting the room. I took down the drop ceiling so I can do sheetrock instead for a taller room, removed all of the old sheetrock and insulation from the walls to remove some old wiring and prepare for new. I also plan on taking down the wall this week and put up the new.
Here are a few of my current ideas and questions...
1st, would it be a good idea to use XPS (blue board/pink board) or Polyisocyanurate vs cotton candy insulation? I heard it's a bit better for sound proofing and a hell of a lot less itchy when istalling
2nd, I have no idea where I am going to put the new door, was hoping for a few ideas once I post pics. My options are a bit limited but advice is welcome.
Last for now, I will skim through the construction ideas in the mean time, but the room right now is just 2x4's, 16 on center I think, and I don't have the option to do staggared beams on the other three walls but would it be a good idea to do a staggared setup on the new wall especially since my new plan for sub's is an IB setup?
I will post pictures this week, stay tuned!
