Even a little progress is progress. I have to keep telling myself that as I feel I have slowed down again, and just do a little at a time to keep it moving somewhat.

Trying to stay focused on the comparatively short list of items I really should finish before getting the carpet in - not that it always works that way, I'm more of a starter than a finisher, so I have to force myself to resist the temptation to move onto the next, more interesting task, before finishing the one before (like working on the columns before I've finished the soffit fabric).

HAHA!! By the looks of the above picture, you said... "To hell with the columns... I'm gonna finish that soffit fabric."

Doing a great job Brad, I know exactly what you mean by not finishing a job you start... especially getting down to the wire.

Thanks guys!

The white chair serves a couple purposes: (1) stool to stand on to get the bits of fabric up behind the screen on the sides, where the ladder wouldn't fit; (2) after I finish something noticeable, a place to sit down and say "hey, from this distance, it doesn't look half bad"

LOL, oh yeah, that reminds me that my work table is our old dining table from years ago - glad we never threw it out!







Sadly, I have a nice workbench that I built several years ago, but its buried in bits of other projects.

You should probably just get it over with now.

Tear out your rear riser, buy 3 of the Danley DTS-10 kits, and use those as your riser.

Combined with your THT could be something special!

Lol, me either. The thought of that many steps in reverse in my build certainly outweigh any dreams of greater bass output at this point!

However - an IB in the attic space at some point down the road isn't out of the question.

Brad,

Just had a chance to look over and get caught up on your build. Very well done. I really like your plan for your HT. I can see when it come to the fabric that Steve is in very good hands.

Well done, and keep the progress pics coming.

Well..........

I would say considering you did not have my expert guidance as a carpet counselor you did very, very well. I'd give you a solid A-.

Doing that well without guidance I just might consider bringing you on as an apprentice.

Not to sound like the fire marshal or anything, but don't you need two ways out of every room, like a window or something?

Surprisingly enough, its a permitted build, and they're OK with it - maybe because it doesn't qualify technically as habitable space due to being attached to a detached garage?

I only have one way in/out of my basement as it doesnt technically qualify as habitable/sq. footage.

Thanks guys, look forward to your variations on the theme if you do decide to go in that direction! As I mentioned a while back, my columns are after all a variation on other designs I've seen here (such as Ronnie Jackson's).

I'm not the foremost on residential codes, but I was under the impression that the two "exits" were for bedrooms, that's why to count a bedroom in the basement you needed an egress window to have that covered. I would guess Brad that you're correct as the space your building is actually considered a "garage" and not a living space connected to your home.

Somewhere around here there was a AVS member who built a theater but to get it permitted had to call it a "large walk-in closet" for it to meet code. Ah government gotta love codes and bureaucracy.
