    I have a question about closing in my garage. There's no insulation on the outside walls of the garage and we're putting up new drywall and installing insulation.

    Now, I dont want this thing to be soundproof or anything, but I would like to play music semi-loud and not have the whole neighborhood be able to hear it like they do now.

    I went to Lowe's hardware and saw that there were several grades on insulation (R13, R25, etc.) Does anyone know which one of these would be good for me? Im a college student and we tend to get kinda loud, and play music (paradigm studio 40's). The walls are all about 4" thick, and the whole house is wood. The garage is 17 x 12 feet.

    IF anyone knows anything about those levels of insulation, please advise or maybe link me to a page where I can read about it. It would be appreciated.

    thanks

    Hey Anthony,
    I don't know much about insulation, but I know where you'll find some folks who do: Go here to see the insulation forum, and here to see where I posted your question.
    Good luck,
    Jon
