Hi! Jessica Shiffler here. Welcome to Quiet Your Digs!
I dedicate this website to people who are new to soundproofing. Join me in my daily quest to make your home a peaceful sanctuary. And who knows? Maybe we get to make the world a quieter place.
But first, let me tell you a story. I grew up creating and curating audio for myself. I can still remember myself tinkering with sounds inside my second-floor room. Somehow, people from the first floor can hear me all the time.
It can be frustrating when you need to keep your radio volume low so your parents won’t keep shushing you. Sometimes even the sounds of an acoustic guitar can drive them nuts.
This is how I got addicted to soundproofing. I scoured both the library and the internet for countless ways to save myself from trouble.
Eventually, this led in my pursuit to gain professional experience about acoustics, especially soundproofing.
Learning how to soundproof involves manual labor and useful instructions. I know I’m not alone in this dilemma, so from writing everything down on notebooks, I transferred everything I know to this website.
