    Long time listener, first time caller, so please be gentle.
    We're in the process of a full home remodel, and I'm working on a dual-use room that will be both a Home Office and a Home Theater. I know this makes it an odd space, but I work full time from home and it's my only option to have a room that serves both purposes.
    My planned layout is in the attached photo.
    This room has 3 exterior walls, 1 interior wall and it's a single story home. So my main concern is sound being passed through the rest of the house. The shared wall is with a guestroom that won't be used too often.
    In-ceiling speakers and at least 2 high hat lights will be put in too.
    A/V rack will live in the closet, and projector will be ceiling mounted, as will a retractable screen (not sure whether this will be recessed or not).

    My questions are about my current soundproofing plans which I will layout below.
    Jumping to the questions:
    1. Is this a decent soundproofing plan given a more basic budget?
    2. Would you recommend a different ceiling soundproofing plan?

    The Soundproofing Plan:
    For the interior wall, Rockwool Insulation, then a resilient channel w/ resilient clips, followed by QuietRock Drywall, then Green Glue Compound, then another Drywall layer w/ Green Glue Sealant as needed. Also Quiet Puddy for the outlets.
    For the ceiling, same as above, minus the resilient channel.
    Also getting a solid core door, and as of yet determined door soundproofing solution.
