Anyone in the northern Virginia area who wants to get some hands on experience with hanging drywall with clips, channel and Green Glue PM your interest and I will send the address. Or maybe you just want to re-live the glory days when you were building your theater.

I missed the registration for the Green Glue Workshop, but I am pre-registered for the ever popular Introduction to Movie Mixology, where BIGMouth shares his favorite adult beverage recipes, including drinks and cocktails named after movies. After completing this course, you too will be able to mix such classics as a Raging Bull, a Psycho, an Eyes Wide Shut, and many others. Learn the secrets of pairing drinks with movies (a nice Merlot with Sideways, an ice cold Piels with Animal House, etc.). Students will have the opportunity to sample the creations while watching clips of the corresponding film. Attendees must be 21 years of age to sample from the "Movie" menu. Those under 21 can sample from the "Actors & Actresses" menu and enjoy such classics as a Shirley Temple or Roy Rogers. Seating is limited.

Actually, I couldn't find such a class in my AVS course catalog, but it sure sounds more fun than the Green Glue Workshop. Consider this a formal request to add it to the course offerings.

Big

I was talking with John over at the soundproofing company and he was saying they are now suggesting for the walls a layer of osb/plywood first and having it rest on the ground. Is that something you have done?

Would have loved to been able to attend the class but I am in IL. You could always hold a seminar at my house! I got the clips and GG! tongue.gif

Having the ply contact a sealed floor surface (moisture, etc) is recommended when using a recessed wall clip application and / or if the wall will be holding a lot of weight, such as from cabinets, etc. Technically, this would restrict a bit of movement, but that's a fair exchange for the practical benefit

Lexman you beat me to it! I was going to volunteer my HT for a "workshop" too.

Seriously, Big if you have any specific advice for the best way to do this I bet there are a lot of people looking at this thread (like me) who can only afford to sound proof it they DIY.........only problem is they have no DIY experience. So anything helps.

possibly video? but pics are great too.

Update the four part time students over the two days all received their certificates of completion for the workshop. However their schedules did not allow for full time attendance and as a result there is enough remaining work for more students to earn their stripes. I will be available Sunday afternoon for those that need to get their fingers sticky manning the speed loader and squirting some glue.

Send me a PM if want to attend the extended workshop. After this their may be limited slots open for the future Soffits, recessed light wiring, riser building painting and fabric installation workshops

Oh no! Too late...!
Just moved to NOVA in our newly built home and drywall went up into my dedicated HT, I think I did one thing correct and that was resiliant track.

Welcome to NOVA, What kind of Resilient track? RC1 has a high probability of being defeated by a mis placed screw. Not too late to add a second layer with Green Glue.
