The windows will be permanently closed off. We put them in for external appearance, future use, resale etc. There are also BCA / Occ Cert issues as well.

Hi Peter,

Yes ... if you look closely at the bottom of the door you'll see two black dots ... they are the buttons for the twin (!) drop down seals. There are also additional seals to be added inside the steel frame to the jambs and head. You can also just see the gap between the two steel frames ... one attached to the garage / theatre and the other to the house.

Cheers,

Peter M

Great photos Peter. Those doors are engineered and built like a tank. Coming along real well. Won't be too long now. If you need a hand with anything, please yell out.
Cheers

How does the drop-down door seal work & where do you get them? I have about a half inch gap under mine... Inkeeping with the aussie theme, I posted some gardening photos

I suggest you look for a local door specialist ... search for fire and acoustic doors ... and they should be able to advise. My drop down seals are rebated into the bottom of the door, but they can also be attached to the face of the door.

Here's a mob that a quick search turned up and they just happen to be up your way ... Door Seals

This is fantastic! So good to see fellow Aussies doing this. I'm hoping to join the club one day as well... on a slightly smaller scale though.

Still - subscribed, looking forward to more updates!

Thanks, I'll take a gander if it becomes necessary. We have an office to walk through with a sliding door then the solid door to the media room so I'll only know how much sound is going to leak upstairs when I fire it all up.

I'm in Canberra. Almost finished building our new house, which will have a general tv room that I'm hoping to get a projector setup in. Won't be anything to this scale... but still can't wait!

Hi Peter,

Overall the baffle is about 300mm deep. The face is 50 x 25mm slats with 15mm gaps between them, running across the room. Above that is 150mm thick rockwool with air above that.

It's good having a 3500mm high ceiling, as even with the riser and ceiling baffle I'm left with 2900mm clear.

Cheers,

Peter M

Hi Peter,

Yeah ... the inside is nearly finished or they wouldn't have started on the theatre. The kitchen is really the only significant thing left, and it should start going in this week.

You're welcome to come for a visit any weekend. We're renting really close so it's easy for us to get there any time.

Cheers,

Peter M

Nice Progress!!!!

So are you building window plugs or using gyprock over them?

I am still wondering about "plugging," my window but not sure what that will achieve other than light.

The window plugs are two layers of 15mm MDF with GG. No doubt I'm losing some isolation this way, but I really had no choice with the other constraints we faced.

Cheers,

Ah ok Thanks. I think I will just have to use a thick curtain for my application. I have a 3.6 width x 1.25m tall window. I have 2 other openings as well and I am just trying to do the best I can with what I have.

I was trying to talk the wifey into letting me have all the new shed space for my HT room which would have been 7x5m. That was a no go. LOL

Hi there David,
That's a fairly large window. Obviously the thick curtains will give you good light control but probably won't do wonders for your isolation efforts... Particularly the lower frequencies. My two front windows were a similar size and prior to building the room, my 2.1 system was loud at street level, about 80 feet away. Now all the neighbors can hear are my rattling gutters and the occasional nail shaking loose and falling on the ground If you want to scare the wife into letting you have the larger space, set up your gear and subs and let her hear it. You'll be in the other room before you can say 'emotional manipulation'. good luck. If that fails, diamonds seem to be a good temporary fix!
Oh, and looking great Peter. Your progress is getting faster! And looking really good too. Must be happy with what the builder is doing.
