I have a little less than 800 square feet upstairs with no doors, and only a partial wall running down the middle. On one side of the wall is our living/bedroom portion of the loft - on the other side of the wall is our library/playroom/Jonah's bedroom. Think this second area as one long continuous hallway connected to the first rather wide/squat rectangle area by a doorless entry.

Would a noise machine be "enough" if my night-shift husband were sleeping in the bedroom and we turned the library/playroom into a dedicated school area? (So, lots of talking)


Peace

I would think ear plugs would work better. Noise machines are more for covering silence.

Our bedroom is on the street-side of the house. We use a fan year round to cover the road noise. But when dh takes a nap during the day, he uses either earplugs or music via earbuds to give him the quiet he needs.

I think it depends on the type of noise. Ear plugs might do better, as Tracy said. Has he tried using a radio turned to "AM snow?" That's usually what I use if a fan isn't going to cut it. If he can get used to the "snow" then he can eventually crank it up to where it will cover almost anything, lol.


I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. ~Phil 3:13-14~

Ah, well. He can't wear earplugs do to some pressure / tube issues he's had for a while. He can wear them in a tight spot, or at the gun range, but not enough to sleep the night in without a lot of pain.

Thanks ladies.


Peace
