Hi! I have recently moved into a basement apt which is loud in every way (ceiling, windows, water pipes, etc.) and I am looking for a method of soundproofing that I may be able to do myself (I’m a girl by the way), or with minimal help. I have a young baby and my priority is her bedroom. The ceilings here are not drywalled (they are made of some sort of soft tile) with no insulation between the floors, and the walls are paneling on the outside with a layer of drywall on the inside. My question is, if I bought some sort of soundproofing material (either egg crate foam, sound board, or something similar), and if I removed the paneling from the outside wall and just stuck the material in between each vertical piece of wood (rafters?) and then put the paneling back on, would this make any substantial difference? Could I do the same to the ceiling? And, does insulating pipes mean just wrapping them up in some appropriate material? Thank you!!!
