For sure !!!
I live in a bungalow and sometimes stay up when the Mrs goes to sleep and get some sneaky practice time in on my electronic kit BUT I can't use the bass drum !
Even though the bedrooms are the furthest point away from where the drums are the kick reverberates right through the house and it almost feels like it's shaking the other end but I can sit and do rudiments all night long.
