THANKS! Great help on the grounding problem. So thanks to all for that.

SOMEBODY'S not getting inspections?

Let's see.....

1. Fireblock, get framing inspected
1a. Fix what is failed
1b. Get re-inspected
2. Run speaker wire
3. Insulate
4. Get insulation inspected
5. Install RSIC clips and hat channel in ceiling (hope the inspectors aren't reading this thread - would rather not get into it with them, just in case)
6. First layer of drywall
7. THEN GG + 2nd layer DW

And somewhere in there build a front wall and stage.

I can at least start to envision an end....it's a small light, but I can see it.

I'll add my congrats on the inspection. I actually just talked to one of Arlington's finest inspectors about my electrical. My permit has gone through, now it's just a matter of getting to work on it and scheduling a "concealment" inspection. Good times... I'm right on your heels, Logan.

Tom:

Congratulations on the inspection results. Good news and I'm sure it feels good to get that behind you. Milestones are wonderful when viewed through the rear window. Thanks also for the grounding tips and photos. You're ahead of me on that one.

A point of order is appropriate. The front wall and stage should be built AFTER the double layers of sheetrock and green glue are in place. If you need a tutorial, please feel free to see one of the threads that are out ahead of you...like Biggy's, mmmkam's, or heck...even mine would work as a good guardrail in a pinch!

Chris - Find out if you can leave the boxes "undressed" (grounds connected and the rest of the wires just hanging out of the box) for the rough-in electric inspection. It will get you there much quicker. I needed the lights on and a couple of outlets to be able to work so I felt I had to dress mine (connect the whites, blacks, a couple of switches and a couple of receptacles). I redid the exisitng lighting and had to take down what was there to put in new, so it took me longer to get ready. You can do it to that point in Loudoun, it just complicates everything. Again, the inpectors out here have been VERY good to work with. "WITH" being the operative word, as opposed to "against."

CJ -
Thanks again. Maybe that's why building the stage was an afterthought to that list...because it goes last.

The false wall is complete. Bass traps in place. Now I just have to wait for HD to get some black faceplates in stock and finish programing the remote.

* In the interest of full disclosure, as I stated early on, I hired out most of the really difficult stuff, ie, framing, wiring, sheetrock, as part of my full basement renovation. Doesn't really leave much for me to do, does it.

How many times do I have to say it? You will NEVER get that remote programmed. Just ask Big.

Extend my door jambs.....Can't get any help for the drywall so looking another week out before I can get to that. Should be able to drink, BBQ and golf too!

If I had it to do all over again, I'd still hit that shot.

Curses!!! I have been sanding the past couple of days. Got a little bit done Wednesday and then I was really going at it last night. All of a sudden my King drywall sander started binding up. I was able to get it going again but then it binded up real bad and it made some nasty snapping sound.

Opened it up and was able to re-align thing. However, while the motor and the sanding wheel would spin when pressure is applied against the wall the sanding wheel would stop. The shaft continues to spin but it's not gripping. Major setback again, I have to call and see if they can send me the parts. I wanted to be priming by monday CURSES!!!!!

On a happier not I have placed my order for Berk's with Roman. Looking to get delivery late summer early fall.

Plans for the weekend:

-Finish hanging the second layer of drywall in the theater.
-Hang drywall in the bathroom
-Finish corners of the drywall in the theater
-Sit in the theater staring in the direction of the screen wall and try to determine whether I'll do a 16:9 or 2.35 screen.

Stretch goal - reroute plumbing in the shower area (bust up floor to center the drain).

Loganator - I can't see you in my rearview mirror any longer...you're too far behind!

Plans for weekend
  • Friday Night - Watch National Treasure (1st one)
  • Saturday - Sanding and sealing deck (the wife decided she do not like the original solid red so had to strip back to natural)
  • Saturday Night - Going to see new Indy movie
    Sunday - More sealing deck
  • Sunday Night - Watch National Treasure II
  • Monday - hopefully last day of sealing deck

Intermix plenty of beer drinking

Not as exciting as working on HT (athou mines complete ) but at least I'll be enjoying the marvelous weather that is about to be bestowed on us.

Good Luck All.

Cheers,
Mark

Mark I don't know how you are tackling the deck project but last time I did a sand and seal I rented a big orbital pad sander intended for floor and deck work.

I think the pad was something like 18x20 inches and they sell you the paper which ended up costing more then the machine rental. But the thing was a godsend, no bending over to do the deck.

You buy 2x the paper you need and they refund anything you don't use.

Status update: My "program the remote" project has taken a step backwards. No progress on programming the macros, and now I have no IR emitters connected to my PJ and sled. I disconnected them two weeks ago to re-do my PJ/sled mounting. Now I point the remote at the screen and hope the IR will bounce to the PJ. For my next slide backwards, I plan on remounting part of my screen material (one corner has a wrinkle now). I am sure that will go as planned and not result in my screen wall being torn apart for a month....

Errrrrrr

Must work the real job this weekend. I have to work one out of the three summer holidays so I figured I would get mine out of the way now. I don't have another day off until next Friday.

Burkliners came in Tuesday and I had them leave them in the box. I haven't even broke the seal to take a peak... honest...

Now everyone in the neighborhood is installing playsets so after putting in 10 hours at the real job I came home and helped with one of those builds... Just got in. It is not looking good for my June 9th carpet install. I believe I am going to have to push it back.

Sounds like I am going to have to push back my "smells like victory" quote...

One other distraction... Finally broke down and bought a new laptop (for the HT ... of course...) well, sort of anyways and unfortunately I didn't leave it in the box. I spent the better part of Thursday messing around with it...

Man, that took longer than I thought it would...

Sorry I have not posted in several days, but I have been busy playing golf, swimming, and watching movies. Yes, movies. The faux screen is done. The remote is programmed, although I still need to do some tweaking. The black wall plates are installed. other than remote tweaking, I just need to exchange my defective rope light and the HT is done. Done, Logan, done. How is your drywall coming?

Fired up my outdoor blimpscreen last night after the pool party. Pretty cool.

OK, a report from the trenches. Finished the second layer of drywall in the theater. Started to hang drywall in the bathroom. Held off on finishing that due to drain movement issues (see stretch goal).

Also attended an outdoor movie (bedsheet and projector type), and spent some time in a amusement park with the kids (go-carts, batting cages, mini golf, etc).

Overall a great weekend!

**** man, I forgot to tell you, just lay on your back. Balance the edge of the pad on the toes of your work boots and raise it up and down by doing leg lifts. Give you six pack abs in no time. You've seen mine haven't you?

I installed all of the package of mineral wool I picked up last week. Ended up short. There is one stud wall that is far enough out from the concrete wall that I needed to double up the wool, so I ran out. I would have had enough if I didn't need to double up, OR if I had cut the pieces smaller.

In order to get it done as quickly as possible, I cut the 4 feet wide part into thirds (16 inches) and then cut those in half the 2 foot way, so I ended up with pieces 16" X 12." This made it extremely easy to eyeball the cuts. They fit easily between the studs without falling completely part. I probably could have gotten away with pieces 16" X 9" and gotten three more out of each 2'X4' sheet.

I also picked up a couple of tubes of fire rated caulk (the red stuff, right?) but didn't get around to using it (56 on the procrastination meter, remember?). I only have a couple of spots to caulk. Well, at first glance anyway...maybe more once really get into it and find those little places that the rock wool doesn't fit.

I probably need another 3 or 4 sheets of the rock wool...anyone local have an open package they want to sell?
