And if you use George Augspurger, tell him Harvey Gerst sent ya.  It'll either get you a discount, or get you thrown out on your ear.

 Very Happy Very Happy

I hope it's the former.  I've been pricing materials for soundproofing the ceiling...yikes.  
In an attempt to save money, I'm thinking about taking care of the soundproofing separately.  Anyone using that Quietrock 545 stuff?

Thanks again!

"that Quietrock 545 stuff"

While their STC ratings are good we prefer to use several layers of regular drywall because of the added mass and better low-frequency performance.

In addition to George, Vincent Van Haaf and Chris Pelonis are L.A. guys also worth calling.

a house with a basement in LA?   Confused

i don't remember seeing many of those when i lived there...




Yes, we put in the basement under a new addition.  This ate up most of the budget...not the wisest investment real estate-wise, but necessary to do my thing on the fabulous  Rolling Eyes  west side of town.  I had to sacrifice some ceiling height to beef up the insulation from the bedroom above.  It ended up at about 9'5".

I went with 2 layers of drywall with green glue, backer rod, and a 5 inch air gap.  Will be using a Fleetwood window, still working on finding the right permanent dorr.  Floors will be sealed concrete with a couple of area rugs.

I will probably buy one of the RealTrap packages and also build a couple of big ol' bass traps, maybe a diffuser or two.

As far as the sound of the room, I believe I will enjoy experimenting with treatment and finding the best possible sound.  As for the "soundproofness"..... there's only one way to find out how well that works, and the suspense is killing me.

Again thanks to one and all for the help!
