Did this video help you?

PURRO PARRI: Sound board for sure its good an practical ive seen a good one for 2500...quiet ..made od welded steel..all the beels an whistles but way to much for me if u spend less than 500 buks goood for u anything over a 1k is over kill but all cosmetics an b.s. good wrk for diy😊

diastoleny: I really love the creativeness but I'd be worried if something went wrong. Way too much to loose. Cool video though.

k zane: QUIET???????????????????? SHOOTS,,,,,,,,,, THAT "SHED" NEEDS MORE INSULATION... IT COULD OF/SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABIT LARGER....BUT THATS DONE. THE VENTALATION GRILLS "BIGGER".... TO THE EXHAUST??? A FLEXIBLE HOSE THE GOES TO A REAL MUFFLER. I REALLY THINK A REAL MUFFLER COULD REALLY CUT THE SOUND LEVEL DOWN... HOW ABOUT A RESCUED MUFFLER FRM A JUNK YARD CAR???? OR FRM A MOTORCYCLE??? .. DID YOU MEASURE THE DECIBLE LEVELS????? THERE ARE APPS FOR SMARTPHONE FOR DECIBLE METERS..... HOPE THESE SUGGESTIONS REDUCE YOUR SOUND OUTPUT, SO YOU NOR YOUR NEIGHBORS HAVE THAT GENERATOR SOUND A BLARING...... ALOHA

Robert M: Pretty scary. You Tube should be cracking down on this. Another home made engineering disaster in the making. If you want to burn your house down just put your portable heat producing generator inside a flamable enclosure like this one right next to the flamable fence that leads up to your house. Just ask your insurance company.

rts: Bolt some wheels, a steering setup, brakes and a seat and you got yourself a car. 

AudioKing81: Thank you for the video. It is neat to see some of the ideas folks have to solve these simple issues. I thought about putting my genny inside my garage and piping the exhaust outside through the wall. I have been concerned about the noise. Thank you again for sharing this idea.

Warren Arf Williams: Thanks for sharing. Lots of people on here scared to do crap keep dissing people's projects to avoid doing their own. They'll freeze their ass of in a winter power failure....

isma ariff: why dont put it underground or in a small concrete room?

dieselpuller: Thanks for the ideas.

John Puccetti: Sounds terrible. How bad was it before?

sutter75: Wow great job

strassercaster: should have designed it with the exhaust aiming away from the house .

AesopsRetreat: Dood, nice handi work, but, that's not "Sound Proof."

gtiplus: Thanks for the ideas

Paul Ogea: You would probably be better off using something like suspended ceiling tiles. They are relatively cheap and are designed to absorb sound. 

Robert Trull: how many amps does that fan pull?

Bill Hier: What are the interior dimensions?

Rusty Rowe: Do you now the db difference? I'm thinking of doing something similar for my food truck. I have the 12.5kW powermate and its loud as crap! hoping that 18" muffler quiets it down.

2HeadedOgre: Despite the concerns that others have brought up, I am sure it works well to have a weather proof place to store your generator when it is not in use. Also, for how infrequently one needs a generator, the enclosure probably suits the purpose fine. I am just curious, has your neighbor complained that the engine exhaust is directed into their yard?

John R: Now thats a quit generator

strassercaster: why did you point it at your house and a window.I would put a flag like Board on a pole about 2 feet away from the exhaust .Angle it at 45 degrees away from the house.When i was a carpenter we just stood a sheet of plywood up nailed too a 5 ft board ala kickstandand sheilded our side. Sheild that exhaust aiming at your window.

Mike Sullivan: Looks like some grow room build techniques going into that....Nice job

mystiksoldier: Brilliant. NASA could use you right about now.

klosnoski: dynamat. worth a look 

Wewaswampboy: Consider running the exh. tube above your house eve. It will reduce your noise level. We did it in the military, Sound travels up up up, so you do not hear it on the ground as bad. Exh. fumes go up with the noise. 

rich d: Real nice job! My grandfather buried his muffler in a bed of rocks and sand just outside of the generator shed. The only thing you could see was the exhaust pipe going straigtht down into the dirt. The gases came back up out of the ground via a bed of rocks/gravel. It was very quiet. You can also heat water with the exhaust using a water heater for a muffler. Rich

Tom Hoehler: Very well done. I'll bet your neighbors appreciated the noise reduction too. I am going to try this, my Briggs&Stratton generator is one noisy beast. The Honda inverter type generators are very quiet, but very expensive. Thanks for posting.

roknwoe: Your shelter looks great! Much thought went into it! I have learned it is extremely difficult to quiet down these portable generators. The big Eu6500i Honda runs about 53 decibels with no shelter, but costs $3600+. Sometimes I wish I would have just spent the $3600+ instead of buying a cheap Chinese generator for $800 (9000w unit) which runs about 76 decibels. It is so noisy, you can't hang around it for more than 2 minutes before you have to walk away due to the noise. You shelter is practical and thrifty for its purpose. Hats off!

walkertongdee: I'm thinking that that liner inside is amplifying the sound. You could try something like acoustic tile that would help. Enjoyed the video!

David Chandler: line it with corrugated foam rubber. Like you use in a sound studio. It absorbs alot of noise. Mattress pads work well , but the heat eventually messes them up.
