We removed the drywall to expose the trusses in our living room. The floor above is 3/4 plywood bedrooms. The trusses are 2 feet tall and add height to the room. We just want to reduce the voice level coming from upstairs while leaving the trusses open (stained).

I’d like to add a layer of sound blocking and then beadboard.

Need suggestions of what to use.

R, You must measure the noise before you design a barrier to stop it. Without measurements, you are just guessing and guessing is gambling and you will lose every time with noise.
