Topic tags/keywords: bathroom hallway

I just added an up stairs half bath and I had no other choice but to expose the drain pipe
About 6 in from the wall so I need to stop the sound and I’m going to be boxing it in
Some way and maybe use it as a base and have a few shelf’s coming off both sides of it Or ideas anyone ?? It just can’t be herd : )

You could wrap it Roxul or the denim based insulation. Or get 1/2” soundboard/Homosote and build a box around it with that first and then maybe fill that with expanding foam.

If you build the shelves on top, which might be a great idea, make sure you remember that you might need back in there some day. Try to build it so you can easily get back into that box without tearing up all the rest of your shelving
