Hi all

I am currently having a new house built with a detached music room which will/has the frame built, before i finish the internals with a room in a room design.

The builder was/is planning to use rendered EPS (expanded polystyrene) as the external cladding, which is part of the plans we had drawn up by a draftsman & engineer. But i am starting to get cold feet on that idea as all my research suggests it has no soundproofing qualities at all.

The builder has been good allowing me to see if i can find an alternative, but i'm a bit lost with deciphering what would work/be better.

I am in Melbourne Australia

Does anyone have any experience in this area, who could point me in the right direction?
I have tried to search through this forum but i couldn't find anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as the build has gone pretty seamlessly so far and i don't want to hold it all up.



Sorry i cant seem to upload image of plans.


Cheers Ben
