LF: Experiences living across from a highway sound barrier
I visited the house to see what the noise is like during rush hour and it just sounded like indistinguishable white noise, but quite loud. It's winter time, so I don't get to see how the barrier baffles loud engines such as motorcycles as they fly by.
Does anyone live across from a sound barrier? Would you buy your house again if you could do it again?
We're a couple with no kids yet, so we're ok with the noise. We're just not sure how we would feel about it 10 years down the road. How do you feel your kids are affected by the noise from the road?
After a few years, are you constantly aware of the noise, or do you just get used to it?
Would you consider the proximity to the highway a deal breaker?
I love the house, but I'm unsure about the long term with the noise.
