Soundproof Sleeping Closure Answered
Hello fellow instructables :)
Right I need some help and advice on a design brief to help fix my problem.
Problem - I live in a ground floor flat and there is 1 flat above me, 2 scum bags occupy it, a couple of 22 year olds and they have obviously never been taught consideration for others and they bang and thrash around all through the early hours of the morning.
When they bang on their bare wooden floor it sounds like a heavy metal dumbbell coming through my ceiling and it wakes me abruptly and its ruining my life :( I've complained to the council the past 18 months but there not interested.
They have not put any carpet down in their flat in the last 18 months and it looks like they have no intention of doing so (they can afford fags n booze tho), plus they have a baby due any day now, great.. so now there making their problems, my problem.
Solution - The only thing I can think of is making a soundproof sleeping closure, a large box like a 4 poster bed but all sides solid made out of a layer of MDF then insulation then more mdf, but I have some questions before I start.
How would I get adequate air in and out ?
Would this even stop the banging on my ceiling waking me up ? or would it still penetrate the box ?
How would I control the temperature, would it be too hot in there ?
Something like the image below but more solid with a door.
If anyone has any experience with this or input or any good ideas I'd be ever so grateful.
Cheers in advance.
