Hi House Nerd,
I live in an old home in Fremantle that I am renovating and would love some tips on how to reduce road noise in my house. Being close to the street and constructed of weatherboard I hear every car that passes and it is getting quite frustrating especially when trying to sleep. Have you written any blogs on this problem and methods to solve it?
I adore this beautiful inner-city home from Homes to Love. Photo by Maree Homer.
Maybe there is something in our drinking water but this past month I’ve received not just one but three emails from different readers asking if I can do a story on how to minimise external noise in a suburban home and make their home quieter, because living in a noisy locale is slowly driving them nuts.
Well, when I get three separate requests about writing about one topic, I try to do it. Guys, I aim to please. Your wish is my command; email and I shall blog (usually. Don't get too kinky on me).
So back to reducing noise in a home. Firstly, I know some of you guys are probably quite surprised that I feel so enthused about writing on this topic, because, as many of my close friends will attest, I am as deaf as our doorstopper...
