If you have a top floor flat... how much sound travels through the floor?

Customising, building or repairing your own gear? Need help with acoustic treatment or soundproofing? Ask away…

But my horse wears them when he's in the house.

I live in a top floor flat, and it's safe as er, a um, It's SAFE alright?

The guy below me is hard of hearing and there is noone above, the only problem is my girlfriend and her headaches!

Ground floor flats in south london are plentiful, cause, c'mon, who wants to be burgled? (leave address here)

Options?

There is always the house share option with similar minded people.

It will be cheaper than your own place and if someone is nearly always in there will be less chance of getting the burglers around.

tried that mate!

seen three already. putting aside the fact tha ti wouldn't wanna leave all my gear with strangers when i'm at work, the rooms have all been tiny... it's a bad time of the year as it's a very studenty town and the students have taken all the places already!

i sound like a broken record, and seem to be rejecting everyones suggestions, i know - but i do appreciate it. getting a bit desperate now - although my sisters friends don't mind me staying etc.

Hope you find somewhere suitable soon!

It is a complex problem where quite a few things have to fall into place for a solution to be found. There is no quick and easy answer really - just some options better than others.

Hang in there Beatsmith,

Looking for a flat when you're in a hurry and on a tight budget is the most demoralising, angst-ridden hard work ever. It really, really sucks.

So good luck and don't let the bastards grind you down.

hi guys,found a flat :)

it's much more expensive than what i wanted to pay but

it's a purpose built building so the floors are all concrete. got a 1st floor and security is excellent

only problem is it's not gonna leave me with much cash to buy anything let alone spend £300 on a desk! and monitors... yadda yadda

will give more info when i'm actually in there, next week...

cheers!
