    I should be able to block the windows, any suggestions?

    I have a rough drawing of the room and desk (I am not an artist). I did it in OpenOffice Draw so hopefully this will work. I will try to attach it

    Here is the pic I drew. I can live with the 2 concrete walls, but I think I will haver to build at least 2 more inside. For sure one behind because that wall holds all of my CDs (over 2000 of them). I basically want to enclose my desk.

    Brian,

    I would have to see actual pictures or detailed drawings of the current windows to accurately suggest anything for you.

    I would suggest that you center your desk set-up between the walls...

    That is why I wanted to add the extra walls on the right side and the back.

    Every voice over studio I have been i has been small, usually big enough for 1-2 people at the most. Lack of space doesn't concern me.

    OOhh, I C.

    Well, If you don't mind tiny. Go for it. You will have to treat it well.

    Thick trapping in the corners & at least 2" OC703 on most of the walls.

    Do you have room in the window area to build a frame inside the window opening? -- build a frame that sets back 1 1/4" from the wall so that you can apply 2 layers of 5/8" gypsum board after putting in insulation with the frk facing the room. Then seal well with a butyl rubber caulk or other acoustic rated caulk.

    Cheers,
    John
