The one-story condo had one other unit beside ours, a garage underneath and no one above.<quoted text>
Before you were in a condo and had the insulation of the units beside, above and below you. Now you don't.
Our townhome obviously has no one above or below but units on both sides which are very well-insulated.
The "no noise" factor is very important since hubby has to go to bed early and get up early. Very quiet here. So was our former condo.
