    Hi,

    I am about to block up a set of internal French doors. I was wondering if I should build a stud wall (with appropriate sound-proofing) or a brick/block wall?

    I would like to know which would be cheaper (but still give appropriate sound-proofing). The two rooms will both have TV's in them so i'd like to block as much sound as possible.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

    What are you building on top of? Is there a wall below for you to build on?

    Personally, if I were doing it myself I'd build a stud wall. That would also make it easier to reinstate the opening, if you or anyone else wants to do so in future.

    Cheers
