One of the best things I did was the OSB / PW layer. It did make hanging columns, wainscot, firing strips, etc so much easier. I spoke with Ted about the trade offs and he said they were small. I did go up to 3/4" OSB and PW to close the gap some.

I used PW in the ceiling for its ability to hold screws better. Not only will PW hold screws better I also felt if I ever had an unknown moisture issue upstairs the OSB could be a problem. It was a cost savings to not use PW on the walls.

I went back and forth on to soundproof or not early in the process. We don't have kids so why do it? I am so glad that I did. We have since had guest with kids stay with us and were able to watch movies a shade under reference with the kids down the hall without waking them.

The big thing is it makes the room dead quiet. I have had guest stand by the door and open and close it and be amazed what a difference it makes.

It is one of things that requires attention to ALL of the details. If you are going to do it do it right. I had so much help from Ted White. He is awesome to work with.

We are here to help as well.
