panelling in the "master bedroom". By pushing on the panelling I believe
that there is nothing behind it, as if the old lathe and plaster had been

Adjacent to the bedroom on the left is a bathroom and to the front is the
hall, the other two walls are outer walls. In the past when my dad and I
built an addition to our other house, we had a theater room and to
soundproof this from the main house we installed layers of sheetrock in
between the studs. It worked well and we could enjoy loud movies without
waking anyone in the main house. Although this worked before is there
another way this can be done without all that weight?
