Hello! I am going to be closing on a new home in the next few weeks and it currently has a home theater but not a fan of the design the guy had. For one it was painted in LSU colors, yuck, and not a fan of the layout so planning to do it again. I've been watching a few of the other threads and noticed people are using OSB between the studs and the drywall and thought it was a cool concept but have a questions.
- Living in the south with humidity and other issues how are people preventing the OSB from getting moist with these conditions? Are people wrapping the studs with a barrier prior to putting up the OSB?
- Can this be done on an exterior wall with concrete? Any treatments or special handling for these types of walls?
- Does the OSB/DW setup cut back on noise? Would I still need a decent sound proof insulation or could I cut back to the typical stuff?
