Best high R value wall for a music studio…
I am in the process of designing a small building that will be attached to the back of our house by a short breezeway. This will house my audio mastering business. I’ve hired an acoustician to help with the design.
Because of the close proximity to the house, he is specifying three layers of sheet rock for the inside, for soundproofing.
If I were to build a double-stud wall (per Lstiburek’s Ideal Double-Stud Wall Design), would this design create vapor-control issues in the wall? I assume that there would be no drying to the inside through three layers of sheetrock. (This is in Southeast Alaska – very cool and rainy year-round.)
Is there another high R-value design that may be better? The building will only be about 350 square feet. I want it to add minimal heating load to our house. It will probably be heated with one register from a ductless mini-split heat pump.
