An Acoustic Remodel To Help Drown Out Ballard Traffic

Project Name: Acoustic Remodel
Location: Ballard
Professional: Design Scales
Cost: $22K
Planning: Six months
Description: The homeowner wisely timed this complete remodel of the dining room & living room during the ten days they were away in Hawaii. While they were sipping Mai Tais, Design Scales upgraded the drywall, adding roxul insulation and using an insulated pad that feels like a 1/2" sheet of silly putty behind all outlets. The exterior walls got an acoustic grade drywall, helping to reduce vibration and noise levels from passing cars and trucks. At a cost of $22K, this kind of work is recommended for any similar situation as well as basement soundproofing and media room soundproofing.
