Two Story Great Room - Closed off Second Floor?

3 years ago

Does anyone have a two story great room, without it being opened to the second floor above? Most I see have balcony type things on the second floor, but I imagine that can also be closed off?

I've been reading lots of posts regarding noise concerns with two story great rooms, and I was wondering if having it closed off would help with the noise. We're building a custom home and had original plans for a two story great room in a modern A-frame. We have two young boys (whose bedrooms would be on the second floor) and now I'm worried about the noise traveling too much. Our master would be in the main floor if that makes a difference.
