Thank you, Bob, and others who have responded to this issue. I agree with Bob that soundproofing needs to be considered when building. Regarding the five people to negotiate, not true in this case. 2 parties only. I own my unit (9 years), they own upstairs (9 months), I am President of the condo trust in a small, self-managed building where noone wants to be trustee anyway, but that's another story. I have spoken with the neighbor. Someone suggested band-aid type things you put on your nose (?baseball players use them). Neighbor says her husband, the snorer, has used these and they don't work for him. I suggested she have him evaluated for apnea. They have, he doesn't have it. He's an M.D. or intern. I suggested padded rugs, more drapes, pillows, and whatever insulting materials they could get. She says since he is an intern, they have a lot of expenses and can't afford lots of rugs and things. I suggested a special pillow from Brookstone's that advertise it will help with snoring. She said she will try that. The odd thing, I can hear the snoring in the bedroom above mine, but it is muffled. I think from all the bedding as insulation. That doesn't actually wake me or even bother me much since it's a low, muffled noise. But this 5-7 a.m. noise I hear while sitting on my living room couch! It seems the snorer falls asleep on his couch! It somehow echoes down through the walls or whatever and literally buzzes through my head. I asked the wife to get her husband to sleep in the bedroom where the snoring is muffled. ( I suspect she wants the noise away from her) Immediately this neighbor is very defensive, though I tried to approach them in a very non-threatening manner, acknowleding that this was a medical and difficult problem, etc. The good news: it seems he'll be doing an internship or residency in another city this summer. The bad news: they just bought the place last summer so unless they are planning to rent it out, they may be living here for awhile. I think my only option is to either rent out my place or sell....time to move on. Thanks again for words of wisdom, sympathy, and encouragement. Beth
