Since you have a direct flanking path from your overhead joists that essentially attaches the framed walls, the RC might help overcome the flanking loss.

The windows, even if every wall and ceiling assembly had RC on it, will still be governed by the flanking that exists from the two frames.

The only way to overcome that would be to have as thick a glass, laminated pane as possible.

Ideally, you would change the framing to have it decoupled from the overhead floor joists, since you are not that far into this, that would be my option of the day, this is what I would do, is what I am saying.

Thanks Brien! (even though that isn't what I wanted to hear) That is what I'll have to do.

In another thread, Stuart asked for picture of how my studio build is going.

Cool! so it DID happen! :)

But I'm always wondering why named this thread the way you did. "Best's Studio" is great, but weren't you ever tempted to name it "The Best Studio"? With your fortunate surname, you really could get away with doing that.

You sly beast you! You've been doing work on the place and not telling us! No fair.... :)

That place is starting to look seriously good, Eric! Damn, but there's some nice workmanship going into it. You are making me green with envy....

I can't wait to see this place finished!

Thanks guys. The room sounds good from behind the kit. I haven't been able to check how the isolation is beyond knowing that I don't hear the furnace or anything else when I have it closed up. :shot:

Got a chance to play the drums with someone upstairs in the living room. He said that they were barely audible :D

It's starting to look pretty darn good, Eric! I can't wait for the day when it is completed, and I can add it to the list of "successfully completed" studio! Not too long now, I hope... :)
