Soundproofing a pole building 3 car garage?
So I'm a night owl and frequently stay up until 12 or 1 in the morning about every night. My wife has always been the same way so before we had kids, me building stuff in my workshop was never an issue at night. Now with a 2 year old and a new one arriving any day now, my time to build stuff is pretty limited. Somehow I have convinced my wife to let me build a 24'x40' detached 3 car on our property so I can head out there at night and . We're going to go with a metal pole building construction. This will let me move my wood working equipment out of the basement, my metal shop equipment out of the garage, and let me do blacksmithing indoors.
Right now when I forge its outside so its fairly loud. We have acreage but our property is more long than wide. Where I will building the garage its about 75' from my house and about 100' from my neighbors house. My current neighbors are very cool but they're putting their house up for sale over the summer. My goal is to be able run a table saw, angle grinder, or use my anvil at anytime of the night and not have to worry about waking anyone up.
I've been looking up soundproofing insulation up but I have zero construction knowledge. Does anyone here have any experience with trying to sound proof a shop? So far from what I've read, that ROXUL sound n safe insulation has good reviews.
My plan was to insulate the shop and then cover the walls with OSB and paint. The ceiling would be the same way but the building I'm building will have attic trusses for storage space so I wont be able to insulate the entirety of the ceiling.
Any advice or a direction to go in would be appreciated. Thanks.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
