First layer is complete. Well, almost. I have one more partial panel to put up and will do that tonight. I'll go back with acoustic sealant and seal all the joints and make sure I've got that covered. Later this week I'll put a rough coat of mud over everything (except the corners) just to make sure everything is covered. May be overkill.

Of the 38 sheets, I have 10 left, just enough for the second layer on the ceiling. I plan on doing that in a few weeks when I'm off for the holidays. I'll be up to my eyeballs in green glue at that point. I want to see if I can order 10' sheets of 5/8" this time so I can do the walls vertically, otherwise I'm going to have a 7" seam at the top or the bottom if I'm alternating.

I'll post pictures later in the week.

Just put my order in for 17 sheets of 4x10x5/8" to do the second layer vertically on the walls. I have enough to do the ceiling with what I have left. Delivery on 12/16. Merry Xmas to me!

Looks like a nice space...

Hope you are safe from the fires down in that general area. That is pretty horrible, Pigeon Forge/ Gattlinburg is one of our favorite vacation spots.

Kevin,

Thanks. We're a good hour away from Gatlinburg, although there are fires everyplace. I feel so bad for the towns and the people. I'm not sure if we know all the damage thats been done yet.

We had some fires not far from our cabin in North GA as well. It already burned down once, would hate to see that happen again.

don't forget the bottoms between the drywall and the concrete.

Thanks Jeff, I'll seal those after the second layer and the Acoustik mat and subfloor go in. Need to also source some Linacoustic in Knoxville, otherwise I'll have to road trip it to Atlanta.

The Green Glue folks recommend sealing only after the second layer so there is an air gap behind the caulking. All their SIMs show this as well. My selective OCD tells me to caulk each layer fully, but in the end I think I'll follow their SIM and do like Bud is doing for his room.

There's probably some air gap back there anyway, even after the first round of caulk. My real concern was the seams between sheets, not necessarily the perimeter of the room, but whats done is done and how much will it make a difference? No idea, I'll let the experts chime in. I wanted to make sure I sealed the crap out of it.

And here I go on about having two floods. Hoping you don't have second problem.


Room looking good. I probably didn't seal the first layer as tight as it could have been but am still totally happy with the results. I'd bet you will be, too.

I literally say this all the time. Electrical penetrations are a great example. You have guys which run all electrical through penetrations in the soundproof shell which are then sealed up. But then you have other guys who move heaven and Earth to avoid any penetrations at all costs. In the end will it really make a difference? Probably not...or the difference will be so small as to be imperceptible.

Spend most of yesterday afternoon and the evening using up what drywall I had left. Of the 38 sheets, I'm pretty much down to scraps. I went ahead and did the second layer of drywall on the ceiling, using GG in between. Expected it to be messier, but it wasn't bad at all. I was dreading having to clean the speed loader, but that worked out as well. I used almost a whole bucket not he ceiling, I have two buckets left. Not sure how I'm pacing.

I started in the afternoon around 2:00 PM and didn't want to stop until the ceiling was down, ended up finishing (including the shower) about 1:00 AM. I'm little sore and a little tired!
