How To Stay Sane Living Near Loud Construction Noise

Living near a construction area can be a nightmare. Everything is loud, you cannot hear yourself think, let alone sleep. If your sanity is wearing thin. Here are a few ideas to help keep your sanity intact.


Hang fabrics: fabrics can help absorb sound, so hang something over the area where the sound is loudest. If the noise is coming from a window, buy a thick curtain.


Move furniture: your furniture arrangement can help reduce or increase outside sound. If the noise is coming from your balcony, put large pieces of furniture near that area to block the noise.


Play music: if all else fails, always have some light music playing in the background to provide a more pleasant noise to focus on.
