RE: Advice for preventing sound from traveling or penetrating a door.

Assuming the door itself is not as flimsy as tissue paper, the seams around the door play a significant role.

Seal all the edges, and the sound transmission should be cut way down.

On the bottom of the door, affix any sealing device to the door, that way, no one will trip over it. You will probably have to take the door off of the hinges to do this. One of the vinyl flaps or "V" shaped seals that spring outward from the mounting position should help for the bottom of the door. If carpet or other things are in the way, then figure out what air sealing method you can use to best advantage.

Also, seal BOTH doors, not just hers.
