Greg Jenner's garden office soundproofing tips

Historian and broadcaster Greg Jenner has been hard at work recently soundproofing his garden office. He's very kindly written an excellent thread about it on Twitter, complete with images, for anybody considering going down this route, particularly those who are podcasters. Greg's top tip:

Soundproofing is mostly about three things: 

1) adding dense mass (acoustic plasterboard) 

2) isolating internal walls from ext. walls, so sound energy dissipates in the between space - you wanna stop ‘Drum Effect’ (hence metal clips on the rafters) 

3) sealing all air gaps

 Strong recommend.
