Letter: The New Mason

When we moved to Mason some few years ago we believed we had found the place that would give us the peace & quiet that we had so much desired for, we were coming from the city and this was going to be our place of solitude and for the most part we have had that quiet that is up until last year, you see, our neighbors have a business that has changed from the little venue that it was to basically having full out concerts on just about every weekend, so we can no longer enjoy our quiet nights on our deck staring out at the sky and gazing at the stars without hearing the loud music being blasted to high heavens, but if you were thinking we  should just spend our weekend nights inside because at least with our windows shut and the TV on it wouldn’t bother us, well, think again because we can still hear the music right through the walls and our children complain that they can’t get to sleep because it is so loud!!  Yes the once peaceful country setting of Mason that  we so desired  is now gone and forgotten, No we are not enjoying the NEW Mason and what we thought we had left behind when we vacated the big city.  Bring the Old Mason back please!

    Talking with your neighbors is the first step. When they’re playing music, they’re probably home.

    Bazil, thanks for your suggestion and thoughts. I have yet to have the opportunity to talk with my neighbors and they can be difficult to get a hold of for various reasons, as for your suggestion to erect a fence/wall I do not believe that it would be feasible for multiple reasons, such as the size of it in length, height and of course cost, and doubtful that it would curtail the sound all that much, there already is quite a bit of forest between us which does little to deaden the sound. Caught between a “rock~n~roll and a Hard place” to come up with a solution.

      There are certain materials which are very good at absorbing/redirecting the noise. Like a fence of overlapping hardwood boards angled at 45 degrees up. If they have the high ground I would suppose it would be easier. I don’t know the geography of the area between you houses, but building such a fence could be quite expensive.

    Have you spoken with your neighbors about the noise issue? Maybe they can build some kind of fence or wall that will redirect the noise so it won’t be such a nuisance?
