Hope somebody can solve this for me!
I recently purchased a 24yr old home that has a bedroom over the garage. The bedroom is not entirely over the garage but approx 4'L x 12'W x 4'H of it is. My garage is pretty big and is open right up to the roof slant so there is no insulation between the roof and the garage floor.
The garage door opener isn't directly under the bedroom, but approximately 3 to 4 feet away.
The problem is that you can hear the garage door open and close and possibly feel a slight vibration. It's not extremely loud but I'm planning on using that as a child's bedroom.
How can I sound proof the bedroom? I thought about soundproofing from the underneath of the bedroom as I have access to it from the garage. I thought about adding some soundproofing boards around the exposed areas by screwing them into the existing drywall and frame. I was then planning on re-drywalling it afterwards to create 3 layers under the room - drywall, soundproof board, drywall.
Is this a good idea?
Please help as I'm currently doing the renos to the home and would like to get this done soon.
