Soundproof the apartment - temporarily
January 27, 2014 11:04 PM Subscribe
So we've found ourselves living next to a mall for the next couple of months. The construction noise wasn't terrible, but now it's the whistles and megaphones that are entirely audible - even 14 stories up. Help us make our apartment more soundproof! Difficulty: not in the USA.

~ Walls are concrete, so no chance of insulating the Western way.
~ Whatever modifications need to be temporary (it'll be a long two months without any changes!)
~ Can't really spend a fortune here
We need to soundproof one set of windows (~2 x 3 meters) and two sets of typical sliding doors.
Thoughts? What have you tried?
