Welcome to A Quiet House! This site is a collaborative effort between Pat Wardell, Paul Johnson, and Eric Daniels. We’re DIY home improvement addicts, friends, and neighbors from Richmond, VA. In 2016, we got fed up with the noise in our community and decided to do something about it. This set off a year long effort to not only learn about soundproofing techniques and products but to apply them in our respective houses. Some of our efforts succeed brilliantly and some were spectacular failures. But through it all we kept learning and improving our knowledge and skills. Now we’re sharing what worked for us (and what didn’t) in our efforts to achieve a quiet house. We’re thrilled to have you as a reader and sincerely hope that this site will be of use to you and serve as a resource for your DIY sound proofing projects.
