Starting sheeting today. Only had time to hang two ceiling sheets of ply. It wouldn't be an AVS Build without an insulation shot. Sorry for the poor quality.





Also going to be wiring room for ATMOS and will likely use an in-ceiling speaker from JBL for all of the surrounds (10 in total), it should be alright:

All those batts would explain why my shirts and slacks are so expensive. Save some polyester for some of us style gurus peter. To be honest, I'm surprised you haven't gone with the pink batts

Haven't visited in a while, but looks like the whole Aussie gang are still constructing to their hearts content.

Looking good Pete. I get itchy and have shuddering flashbacks just seeing those exposed walls and insulation shots.

Is that 16mm Firecheck? Heavy stuff to work with, but so glad I used it. It is is, I have a few spare sheets as well quite a few tubes of green glue and sealant if you are interested. Let me know.

Howdy. I have quite a bit myself (of both), but I am thinking I'll need more. I'll certainly take it off your hands if I run out. I want to do the floor, riser, stage, inside of the speakers etc with GG so it'll go quick.

Right, miracles do happen (as does 14 days straight of rain). Got the first layer of sheeting up. GG and drywall next.





Oh yes, here is what I have dubbed Persuasion 1 and Persuasion 2

Hi mate - in a word, good.

Nearly finished all of the drywall, just have to do the bulkhead on the side where the plumbing is. Once that is done I'll caulk and then finish.

After that is the floor (angel step, then ply)

Then comes the fun of the stage, riser etc.......that will be a while away as I need to save some coin for that.

.....decided to put hardwood flooring in as well......we'll get a rug if it doesn't sound any good.

Hi Peter,

Have you considered the long term compression of the Angelstep at points of high load ?

No, but I will cut a separate section for it to go under the stage, which will sit on its own ply, separated by a 5mm section of caulk. Hopefully that'll work. I wont be laying the floor for some time (cost) so I will be able to see the effect of it under the weight of the sand

Hi mate,

Been camping down in tassie for 3 weeks as a starting point!

....just busy otherwise.

The taping and mudding is about 2/3 done. Paint and floor after that.

.....then there is one potential hitch.....we're thinking of moving....long story, perhaps when the painting stage kicks in I'll give you a buzz foe some of the cheap labour?

Cheers,
Pete

LOL, yeah, seriously. See how things go towards the end of the year - several moons need to align first. But as you probably know, prices are going nuts, so we're thinking of cashing in.

The dogs will be pleased, if we move we will build again and this time they'll get their own room - not building another kennel again that's for sure!
