A noisy and intimidating neighbour.

A TunnelCore wall with an internal cavity to reduce the noise.

Use the existing carport to provide the basic structure.

Step 1
The TunnelCore panels were cut to size then undercoated and painted on one side of each panel with Wattyl Solarguard with two coats. One side only because ONLY one side would be exposed to the weather.

Step 2
Three additional posts were installed in the carport to set up a structural frame for the panels.

Step 3
A bottom and top rail were installed so that the panels could fit flush with the posts.

Step 4
The first panel was fitted, the dog helped 😊. I pushed the panels against each other. Button screws were used to fix the panels

Step 5
Lengths of wood were installed between and flush with the posts to attach the panel.

Step 6
Vertical wood strips installed on the joins. These become part of the internal frame. The panels on the outside painted side, were screwed to the internal frame.

Step 7
TunnelCore panels were installed and screwed to the internal frame with button screws. A third coat of paint was applied to cover the screws and further seal and weatherproof the joints. The wooden ends were also painted.

The finished wall
Not being a tradesman and with the help of my wife the job was easy. The panels were light and easy to lift, cut and attach. The TunnelCore panels have weather proofed the area, gave privacy and vastly reduced the impact of the noisy neighbour.

The whole exercise was carried out at a very reasonable price. All wood was treated pine.
