I am currently looking at building a studio and control room in my garage and deciding what materials would be cheapest to construct the wall between the two rooms for isolation. I am deciding to either go with hollow concrete block or double timber frame. I would prefer concrete block but will go with the timber frames if the blocks are too much.

Cost wise it would be a close run thing. Block wall have much greater mass and therfore better acoustics.

Hello Thanks for your response. By Hybrid I meant Steel wall frames with timber roof trusses. Evidently the wood roof trusses allows for tiled roofing. Thanks
