The plan was skim yeah ...

Yes you can skim MR boards 

If you are tight for space  150 wall is what I normally use as a party 

50 mil stud set on a stick sealant braced every 1200 vertical 25 mil acoustic insulation stapled in place 

Two layers of 15 mil SB

These are used for dividing student blocks So pretty good acoustics 

One later of PB would be fine devising bedrooms 

 

Unfortunately you can’t get foil backed moister or sound boards 

If you are worried about sound when cutting out for lights or sockets It’s quite simple to build baffle boxes into the ceiling or studs using off cuts of pb and 25 mil angle

maybe me -

but if you are wanting to stop noise in the rooms with tv +hi-fi from spreading 

then surely you should be putting any sound insulation in those walls at point of noise production stop it spreading 

  before it gets to bathroom --then you bathroom can be usual mositure proof set up with no other complications ,which might not work
