Unlike many of you, we here in California do not benefit from a construction mindset that can conceive of the idea of a "basement". Sadly, when our land is arguably among the most expensive, and they are now building 3-storey houses on 4,000-square foot properties, NOBODY has opted to dig down
So, my theater is on the second floor of my new home. Despite the hideous costs, it is still a giant "cookie-cutter" home that I was not able to have customized. I did, however, pay to have all interior walls and floor insulated to help with soundproofing.
So, I'm trying to figure out the best way to revamp the room. I'm considering Green Glue and another layer of sheetrock on the interior walls. I will be building a wall across the back where the green "curtain A" line is on the diagram -- and I'll be soundproofing that wall, too.
However... what about the floor? The room is above a guest bedroom and the kitchen. Though the in-floor insulation does help dramatically, I am considering removing out the carpet -- since I'm going to build a platform and a wall (and run outlets into the floor for the Berkline 099's and riser's step lights)-- and then putting the carpet back.
If so, would I benefit much from putting Green Glue on the floor? If so, what should I put on top of the GG? (thinking like 1/4-1/2" wood of some form).
If so, I'm looking at about 700 square feet of GG... so I, too, would appreciate 1-gallon sizes!
Perhaps people here should sell others their leftovers
