Great video as always! So, did you sleep in your home theater last night and spoon your new sub cabinets?

Seriously though, you should start labeling these videos as NSFW because they are definitely nerd porn for me!

About time...... errrr.... I mean..... great video!

I check this thread religiously, and I'm always a little disappointed when there's not a new video. I goess that's easy for me to say, cause I'm sure those things take a long time to make.

At the very least, you've got a loyal subscriber that really enjoys your work, both in the theater and behind the camera! Keep up the good work!

EDIT: Typo

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

Hahaha! Not quite... I did stay up far too late working on the video though! Tonight it's back to the living room remodel.

Glad you liked it!

Nerd porn.

Thanks! I've been a slacker making the videos what with the holidays and all. There honestly hasn't been a lot of progress in the room so it's hard to come up with a video. I've got a lot of footage in the can of me doing menial crap like scraping the popcorn off of the ceiling, painting half of the soffits black (and then stopping), SOLDERING, etc. LOL. I'll get it assembled soon.

I appreciate your compliments!

LOL! I KNOW! Here I am buying two of the most ridonculous subwoofers ever and all people can talk about is the video!

All I can do really is talk about them anyway... I don't even have the drivers yet! Parts Express has the DVC385-88 15" on backorder until the end of the month. I only ordered one for now but I'll get the other one soon enough. I only have enough amplifier for one sub anyway.

Unrelated Side Project That's Keeping Me Out of the Theatre

I've been working on our living room. I'm thinking about painting the brick fireplace. The ceiling is a blueish grey (Restoration Hardware "Atmosphere Blue") and the walls will be a sandy color (RH "Stone").

I'm interested in your thoughts. Is painting brick like this a big no-no? Is it going to be a turn-off? Might I regret it?

What about tile or some other stone veneer? It would be super easy to get the mastic/thinset to stick to brick.... And cheap minus the labor of course.

Don't waste time reading signatures.....

I guess that would depend. Do you both like the look of the fireplace? Or are you looking to update what is there to a particular style?

In the townhouse I had years ago I had almost exactly the same fireplace. Money was tight (when is it ever not tight, right?) and so what I did was remove the existing mantel, tapcon'd 1x3 furring strips to the wall and drywalled. We bought an inexpensive yet decent looking pre-fab mantel for about $200, painted it a semi gloss white to match all the trimwork and installed it with just a couple of screws. For the hearth and immediately around the fireplace we bought a nice granite tile and installed it with a 1/4" cement backer board underneath. For the side of the hearth we again drywalled the front and continued the base molding around the front. One point of note - when we secured the hearth tile, we allowed the cement board to extend 1.5" beyond the finished drywall on the sides of the hearth and supported the underside with blocking. You're handy, so I am sure you know what I am saying.

For our current basement project I actually removed the drywall and prefab mantle and am going with an applied decorative stone. It is a bit more work with the scratch coat, and can be a bit pricier, but the final result looks really nice. I am using Eldorado Stone. If I was actually started on this project I would send you pictures, but . . . .

Here's a link http://www.eldoradostone.com/walkthr...ving-rooms/#11

You could even reuse your existing mantel piece with this and it would look great!

Just a couple of thoughts. I must admit, I was half expecting a picture of you (or your wife) covered in popcorn from head to toe after scraping that size of ceiling!!!

What type fireplace is it? Real wood burner, gas, ventless gas? I'm guessing a wood burner since the brick goes all the way up.

I personally don't care for the brick, but I really don't like painted brick! I'm with the others and think you should look into some other stone or tile veneer with Sheetrock above the mantle. Just keep in mind spacing limits to combustibles.

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

Labor's always free at the Danforth house.

Hmm. I like the sound of this. My parents were suggesting slate. I'm not intimately aware of the stone veneer products. How would you handle the corners?

Oh, this is full of good ideas. I hadn't considered drywall around the top. I like the look of this stone product. I'll have to do some more investigation now!

I'm not sure that Mrs. D would enjoy me posting photos of her on the thread.

It's a wood burner with a Buck Stove insert. It's amazing at heating up the house.

Both of you have sufficiently confirmed my fears. Paint would inevitably be some combination of ugly, detrimental to resale, and regrettable.

Thanks, everyone!

I think I'm going to look into those stone veneer products after we finish the paint and molding.

I'm excited that I get to use my line laser again. I was starting to regret buying that thing since I bought it to hang the soffits!
