So yesterday after getting the second layer on the ceiling up and starting with the walls there was a complaint "HEY
these screws aren't long enough" So I asked were is the box of 2 inch course thread screws? They showed me a nearly empty box of 2s and a full box of 1 5/8s.
Next time I'm leaving the 2s in my truck until the Green Glue festival starts.
At least they only used the 2" -WOOD- screws and not the metal ones. It only caused us to lose out on the screws. On the ceiling, that could have screwed us!
I have a lot of pics from yesterday to post, but can't do it at least until tonight.
So like BIG mentioned, on Wednesday, our 3rd party workers finished putting up the first layer of drywall and acoustical caulk in the theater room.
Thursday all 4 of us (Myself, our two polish contractors, and BIG) tackled layer #2
, which was definately the Green Glue festival. That stuff definately gets everywhere! We put up a piece of plywood in place of a piece of drywall for the first layer where the projector mount or platform will go, and did our power hookup plus putty pads to seal it. (I have pics of this whole process to post).
Once the 2nd layer was well underway we let the polish guys finish the last half of the work while we worked on some parallel tasks. We wired our romex for the movie room & equipment room circuits, put in the boxes/etc (Almost all of which were in the equipment room). We put up clips/channel and ceiling insulation in the equipment room as well. By then the back end of the movie room's drywall was finished, so we cut the hole and hooked up the collar for the HVAC supply to the back corner of the room. This was later sealed with caulk. Having that air come in during work was a great bonus!
BIG and I sat down at the end of the day and had some fun with blue tape figuring out spacing and dimensions for columns, the riser, the steps, and the stage. We were going to go shopping for the materials but it was already 5:30 and we were tired.
Today the workers should be back and doing mudding and taping of the movie room. If we are lucky they will also get the drywall up in the equipment room but it isn't important for our schedule if they can hit that today or not.
Assuming all goes well, Saturday will be Riser & Stage day for BIG and I.
