Question Soundproofing a Man Cave

Now about that soundproofing idea. Since this garage's main purpose is going to be a home theater paradise, A.K.A. man cave, I'd like it to be acoustically solid. The last thing I want is to be...

Yeah, I see where you're coming from. In my defense, I am going to do as much as I can, realistically speaking, by myself. It's just those certain jobs that require a special kind of expertise...

Hey guys. Sorry for being MIA for the last little while. I've decided that this first stage of renovations will almost certainly involve a lot of the more "specialist jobs" being contracted out....

Welp, I had the contractor I mentioned stop by today to check things out. He seemed like a nice and honest guy. Unfortunately, I tipped my hand as it were, by telling him my exact budget. Not sure if...

Alright, that's very good to know. Thanks very much for confirming that. The co-worker's husband, that I mentioned in an earlier post, actually happens to be a specialist in concrete mixing and...

Wow, that's actually a really good idea. That would mean a lot less potential work needing to be done, which is great. I don't think the building department is going to be much of a concern where I'm...

Oh, sorry about that. It's only a few feet from the house, actually. 3 or 4 feet, I think.

By the way, I live in Southern Ontario. Sorry for not mentioning that before, in regards to my weather...

That's fair. I wish there was another way I could gain the extra space that I need without having to deal with converting my garage into a basic living space, but it's either that or nothing. My...

Alright, will do. Do you think the weather up here will be much of a hindrance to this project? It hasn't started snowing yet, but I'm worried that the cold temperatures will make it difficult to...

Jeez, is it really that bad? Damn, that's overwhelming. :(

Anyway, I can follow the steps you've laid out for me (which is must appreciated, just so you know), but I'm going to need a lot of...

I appreciate the suggestion, but there's absolutely no way that I have the money for something as ambitious as that (nor am I likely to in the near future, sadly). Besides, there is not a chance in...

Ok, Here's The Moment You've All Been Waiting For

Well here's a good assortment of pics from my little shop of horrors. Hopefully, it will prove sufficient. Fair warning, though. You may very well go blind based on how frightening it is. :D

Yeah, that garage being a "Man Cave" is pretty much going to be its main purpose. I'm certainly not looking to do a total conversion of the entire space or anything. In the end, I just want to have...

Hmm, I'm trying to upload some pictures of my garage, but the upload keeps failing. What's the deal with that?

Should I use something like "Imgur", instead, to post the pictures?

Nope, there's no drywall or insulation over the walls. It's just bare foundation. I suppose I should also mention that the garage itself has to be resided. Not sure what the cost on that would be...

I have no idea what the state of the electrical is, I'm afraid. I can take some pictures of the wiring, but beyond that I'm not sure what else I can tell you.

The garage is not insulated,...

Damn, that's a shame. I had sort of assumed that would be case, unfortunately. Sort of explains why I've been putting it off for the last couple years. Without being able to do most of this myself,...

Architect? Hmm, is that really necessary? How much do you think that would cost, exactly?

I think the bigger problem for me, is knowing the actual cost for the jobs I want to contract out. For...
