I’m wondering if you can give me some thoughts for my problem. I live in an apartment, where room walls are just drywall but nobody cares as I live alone. My problems are behind and above me. My neighbors…or maybe I have to say that I’m the problem for them…
The floor and ceiling are concrete.
I have a door and a little window to outdoor….
I only use hand tools, and only three of them are source of noise. Hand planes ( very surprised with this ), chisels and hand saw.
In your experience, do you think this can be somehow managed so I can make noise without having my neighbor trying to kill me.?
Thanks in advance!!!!

M, Noise issues require permanent structures that must be designed and then built. They are permanent structures and most management companies we work with will not allow for this type of construction in a rental unit.
