If you fully commit to soundproofing the room what would that include and would you consider covering some to the windows? or are plugs going to be required in the final version.
With double pane window + air gap + window plug combo, I'm hoping for the sound isolation to at least be close to the 2x6 framed highly heat insulated walls from 10-20,000hz. I can also add a layer to one of the panes so that they don't resonate as similarly.
For full commit, I'd consider these options depending on the improvement. A lot of constraints so I'll work with a pro consultant before deciding on anything.
- semi permanent option for window that can be cleanly removed before selling house
- replace windows, replace doors, double doors.
- tear down drywall
- wall within wall if it doesn't kill resale value. room is 21x13x11
- can lower the ceiling height
