My Son’s Band Practice Room
We are in need of some good economical suggestions and came across your website.
Here is the situation: Our teenage son has a 7 piece drum set, 4 guitars, ½ stack, 2 amplifiers, 3 mics, and 2 PA/monitor speakers all in his small 9X11 room. Too tight. We do not have a basement or the ability to knock out walls. We are considering moving all of that to our 24 X 12 Florida room. There are double paned windows on one whole side of the room w/louvers on the outside that can be pulled for extra sound proofing. The Florida room is separated from the living room and the rest of the house w/a set of French doors (framing edges 75 in wide X 87 in high) and an open air picture window (no glass) holding a 55 gal fish tank on the window seat (framing edges 113 in wide X 64 in high). I would love the room to be open to see the back yard whenever it is not in use. Then I would like to roll down sound proofing material that attaches to the frames when they want to jam. The goal is that my husband and I can still enjoy watching a movie while the teenagers are jamming away. Unfortunately, we are not made of $$ and need some really economical suggestions.
Can you help?
