Thanks for the messages all! I was a little nervous that they were going to be more along the lines of "um, you're doing this all wrong. Please take everything down and start over."
And AM - I can assure you I really don't
know what I'm doing! I'm kinda winging a lot of it! But you're definitely right - I am having a lot of fun (I'm an only child so have always had to be able to entertain myself
)and learning a lot through this process, which is really the whole goal of my project (besides gaining a sweet place to watch movies
Tonight I have more shopping to do, but then am planning to frame the next section of the double stud wall, which will include the door to the theater. I have never framed a door opening before, so that could be a little interesting. I'm going to have to read up a bit before starting because I don't know what size to make the rough opening. So maybe tonight will be research and tomorrow will be actual work...we'll see. It's going to be a 36" door, so do I add extra width for the trim and then a little extra for wiggle room?
So...does anyone have input on how to frame the rough opening? The advice on wall framing, stud crowning, etc. was extremely helpful! Thanks again!
