How did you made it soundproof? What's the wall & ceiling structure? - Nice to have bedroom above and not hearing a thing. What's the technique?

It's basically a "room within a room" with acoustic caulk and lots of insulation. The contractor who built it out for us had also built a professional recording studio.

Live music room. It is set up for a band to play and to record as well. It was built specifically for this purpose and soundproofed. My husband can turn his guitar up to 11 and I can be above this room in my bedroom and not hear a thing!!!
