AbstractNoise from neighbours is a common source of annoyance in multi-family homes. Occasionally the annoyance is so great that one occupant decides to alter the structure to try to reduce the intrusive noise. This note is meant as a guide to such people. It deals only with sound transmission through walls and floors between adjacent homes and not with aircraft, traffic or other external noises. In the latter cases, sound enters the home most often through the windows.
