Can you put a 20 lbs. plywood on a interior, hollow wooden door?


Toilet paper is soundproofing! Take a sheet, add 50,000,000,000 more sheets, then stand on one side and see if you can hear the person miles away talking to you! I'll bet you won't be able to! See? ANYTHING is good soundproofing if you use enough.....

OR, tie two rolls of toilet paper together to form ear muffs.

Yeah, but replace the person talking with a nuclear detonation and you'll hear it. See? Nothing is soundproof!! ;-)

Well, just add a bunch more zeros to that # and then you'll be thousands of miles away. Soundproof once more!
Annnd..... if you add a WHOLE bunch more zeros, then you'd be in outer space, and then you'd be in absolute silence! Problem solved! Now... as to the whole BREATHING part, welllll......

well, I just wanted to updated you on what I did:

I just bought a new door with solid wood 4 weeks ago and on that door I put 2 quilts On top of that, since I live in the attic, I put carpets between the space around my stairs. Put them all together, they reduced almost all of the noise coming from downstairs (except slamming of doors and walking up and down of stair noise).

So everything is fine and thanks for all of your advice! :0
