It's time for another hastily concocted mspaint depiction of my current residence and a dilemma.
The corner with the red windows is the dilemma. I'm not as worried about the Killer Bee Room.

true story, my band's practice space back in highschool was extremely infested with bees, even though they buzzed around and stuffed up our gear from time to time, never stung us. Stung a ton of ppl we didnt welcome in there. Bees r extremely intelligent and they can sense ur intentions, so keep em around, never know when theyll come in handy
and ill i say it again... Quincy has all the fun
Jul 22, 2011 11:34 pm make 2 window inserts out of wooden battens and 3mm ply, as thick as the window cavity will allow, fill the insert with rockwool, insert into window/s cavity.

Dont worry about putting backing on the inserts just throw on a ply front. rockwool inside then shove it in the cavity and the glass will hold it in.
mine work well.
Not sure if this is the sorta thing youre looking for or not.
Jul 25, 2011 01:05 pm So these bees accepted your band mates as kindred Hivesman? That's awesome!

That's a great idea D. I have an air conditioning unit in one of the corner windows, but I'll def build that when it gets cooler out this winter.
I just picked up some Roxul RHT 40 from a local insulation warehouse. Seems to be good stuff, according to this handy chart I found www.bobgolds.com/AbsorptionCoefficients.htm
If you're looking for cheaper alternatives to Owens Corning, that website is handy.
Now to build frames and figure out how to suspend this stuff.
