I have looked at that option, but for the price difference it would be more cost effective or close to it, to do the pad by itself. I know some of the Pergo products are glue down types, any knowledge of these???

I'm kind of stuck on having to go the route of a laminate floor due to already framing doors, etc. Originally I considered real hardwoods, but decided not to due to the extra work to putting it in.

Thanks.

Aaron

I see nothing wrong with a laminate floor if you glue the seams.

The issue you are dealing with here is when those bass frequencies start rumbling around will the floor rattle, but you can glue those seams and that should eliminate any potential rattle.

Most of this Pergo or other laminate wood flooring has a snap/lock w/ a sealant strip (or something like that) that helps keep it together. So I don't think rattling is an issue.

OK, I've got another roll developed. Let's post a few more pix. I've been working on the iso room mostly. I debated long and hard whether or not to do penetrations where the light dimmer and outlet and wall box for a sconce light, and as you'll see, I went with the penetration. I don't think I'll have any issues, but if I do, I'll deal with it as it comes...

Here we go...

OK, quickie question on windows and framing.

In reviewing the diagrams that john has posted on SAE, it shows using fiberboard covered w/ insulation and cloth between the 2 windows in a double wall frame construction.

Now, here's my question...Wouldn't the fiberboard because of it's density, short out the isolation between the 2 separate walls? And cause the transmission of sound from one room to the other?

If someone has a better or detailed drawing, please post or point me in the right direction.

Thanks,

Aaron

Aaron, the fiberboard is just laid in there loose, so it won't hard couple between leaves - I've been working on a more detailed CR window/wall drawing, but it's not finished and I'm (as usual) better supplied with projects than I am free time - possibly in the next week or so... Steve

OK. Here's another question, similar to windows, but the floor.

The control room floor sits a couple inches higher than the iso booth. Between the iso booth and CR, is a space between the 2 floating floors. of a couple inches.

Any suggestions???

Thanks.

First, a basic drawing showing relative positions of the two floors - second, some yellow paint where the "step up" is, so people don't trip... Steve

The pic is above, but here you go...I'll get you an exact measurement tonight. If you look at the studs, you can see what I mean.

BTW...Update...The iso room is completely drywalled including the ceiling hanging on RC. I ran outta film, and forgot to take a pic of the ceiling construction, so I'll have to wait until I do the ceiling in the CR to take some pix. :oops:

OK, let's see if I remember what measured last night.

The spacing between the 2 floors is: (on one side it's 2 3/4" & 3" on the other). The rough framing of the door is at 34" spacing for a 32" door.

The height difference between the 2 floors (once again, slightly off from each other)... 2 3/4" on one side and 2 9/16" on the other side.

As you can tell, I built the iso floor first, not knowing there was nearly a 3" drop from one corner of the CR to the other.

I'm guessing I can just use 2x6's and rip them down where I need to. Part of my question is, what do I use to fill the gap between the 2 floors, how much of a space, etc. ????????? Do I allow the kick plate to touch both floors, or ?? And also, how is the best way to fill / cover the gap between the walls of the CR & Iso room? With out shorting them out.

And remembering that a door frame is on one of the walls.

Thanks.
