I live with my father and we get along because he has his lounge space on the first floor and I have my lounge space in the subterranean lair. It’s a big house but did come modularly in a few big pieces so it is bare bones in some ways.
Most annoying is in my lair, I hear every footstep and every bodily noise as if it were right there. I can’t hear his TV but do hear if he is walking around talking on the phone. His area is carpeted.
What’s the best way to soundproof? The lair is a finished basement with drop ceilings, so would it be insulation in the ceiling? I have electric baseboard heat in the basement and upstairs is hot air from the propane furnace.
