You got it. Instead of mounting the trim directly on the door creating the problem you have pointed out in your picture, just mount the trim to the interior of your room and extend the acoustic panel on the theater side door to be flush with the edge of the door. If this acoustic panel build-up still gives you a problem with swing clearance, you could add a very, very slight bevel to the edge of the acoustic panel to fix the problem.

This may go without saying, but I would absolutely saturate the edge of this door acoustic panel and several inches in from the edge with fiberglass hardener to give a bit of durability. Because you know for damn sure people will be pushing on that door to get out. I know this next suggestion may ruin a bit of the stealth look you are going for, but you may even consider having a piece of finish carpentry act as a "push" plate on the theater side of the door to save the acoustic fabric from greasy snack hands and oils.

Hopefully we'll be doing some wiring tomorrow, would like to wrap some of that up. I still have to figure out the sconce on the door trick when it come to wiring so that doesn't hold me up.

Tomorrow we're looking at another GSD rescue dog, a female named Gracie. If things work out, she'll be the fifth GSD we've rescue. We have an appointment tomorrow AM at 10:00 to check her out. Here she is:
500

Sunday I'm off to Reston for the week (finally).

Beautiful dog. My wife and I took in a couple of rescues but stopped when the rescues never left...6 years and counting!! biggrin.gif

I am certainly not the expert for "sconces on doors", but I have done some of my own research because in my theater design I would like to light up some polyglass on the outside of the door with RGB LEDs. I was pointed in the direction of products by a company called Von Duprin, specifically their EPT-2 and EPT-10 electronic power transfer locks. Most of these power transfer devices are found in the security area for things like powered locks and slide bolts. I was keeping with LEDs because it is easier to transfer low voltage vs. high voltage.

Aren't you working with Dennis, though? He should be able to tell you what to buy in 2 seconds flat!!!

Good times last night Bud! Pleasure meeting you. Sucks we didn't get any pics of the get together.

I'm still on like page 8 of your thread, but I'll catch up on your build over the next week or so.

Sorry to miss the shindig. Trust me, backpacking in the heat and rain of central VA was fun, but I bet you had more!

Jeff got a new projector and screen? What did you get, Jeff?

I'm glad that Bud and a lot of other NOVA builders were able to make it. I learned that Bud is taller than he looks in his old Avatar. Thanks all for making it a great event. If anyone thinks they should have been invited but didn't please send me a PM. I think you can appreciate why we don't just post an address and say You All come now.


CJ, same projector as my HT2.0 rebuild, the Planar 8150 on an SMX screen. It was just new to some that hadn't seen it yet.

Here's the latest. After being on the road for a bit, I finally got downstairs today. My father-in-law halted running electric to the equipment room because as it turns out, he couldn't drill through wall above the theater room into equipment room because everywhere he tried, he hit concrete. We tried a few times in a few places, but ran into issues in those places. If you look at it close, there is a 2x12 on the equipment room side that manufactured I-beams attach to under the front porch, and OSB is nailed on the side of the truss (trusses are about 24" high), so I didn't think I had any issues - I figured I had 12" to run HVAC and electric through it and could cut through that no problem. Not that simple.

I thought of a few options for the equipment, but now I'm thinking that the best option is to have the equipment outside the theater room, near the front entrance. I have enough room to easily carve out a closet to left left of the entrance, especially since I've reduce the size form a 6'0 door to a 2'8 door. It's not exactly ideal for me, but it'll make for short cables to the projector. I can make it work and we don't have to alter the plans at all. I'm still thinking about a concession area in the panic room and now potentially a wine cellar. smile.gif

Oh, and turns out that Gracie got adopted by another family, so we'll continue our search.

Bud

Man, you sure do take bad news in stride. I commend you for your patience. Sorry to hear the bad news Bud. I tell you what, turning that panic room into a wine closet/space would be really nice. I know my wife would love me for doing that... smile.gif

Too bad about Gracie, Bud. There's plenty more out there. I'm sure you'll find one.

Wiring continues. I'll be working on the new equipment rack location this weekend as well, get that framed out mostly at least. I still need to do some research on pull out racks and get the final dimensions so I'll be able to finish it out. I've also been finishing up my workshop and have made some significant progress there, I'll have to post some pictures.

Does anyone have the Epson Powerlite 5010 (or 6010)? Seems to have the throw distance, lumens and contrast ration I'm looking for. I've seen some complaints on projector central though. http://www.projectorcentral.com/Epson-PowerLite_Home_Cinema_5010.htm

Absolutely (and hopefully I'll be there this year - smile.gif ). Just starting to look around so I can plan some.

Let's hope they are going to launch reasonably priced projectors with 2.35:1 OLED panels and built-in lens systems, possibly even with native 4k or even upscaling 4K technology.....OK, who am I kidding, right? I would just be happy if they started making native anamorphic blue rays so 23% of the 1080p resolution of the format is not devoted to reproducing black bars above and below a 2.35:1 image....but again, who am I kidding? It will be interesting to see what will be displayed just one short month from now.

Basic HV wiring is complete. I still have to run some wiring (from outlet to outlet location, sconce to sconce location, etc), but for the most part, it's 90% complete - breakers are in and ready to go. I did order and receive my Crestron CLS-C6RF lighting controller through Dennis last week so my father-in-law can play with it. Here's a picture or two of the black beauty.




More info here:
Crestron CLS-C6RF

Need to order some wire and some LV cables next, as well as get more estimates for the HAVC portion - never heard back from the guy with the racoon. Should have known. rolleyes.gif

Also, my "wine cellar/panic/concession area" is completely insulated. I have one or two small electrical things to take care of there, but we should be good to go for drywall there.

Hey Bud. I came across this picture in my files and reminded me of some of the drawings you were putting together for your ceiling design, included the LED uplighting. Thought I would share.

Thats very similar to what I'm trying to do. Not as many and not all square, but close. Do you know where (which thread) you got that from? Thanks for posting.

It wasn't from this forum. If I stumble across a pic on the web that has an interesting design aspect to it for one reason or another I have a general catch-all folder of photos for "design inspirations".

However, if you look closely at the photo you can see a receptacle built into the ceiling in each coffer and a plug in each receptacle which leads me to believe this was probably done with a blue colored rope light that works on 120v and can be dimmed with a standard dimmer. I don't recall what your final decision was regarding your coffer lighting, but the last I knew I thought your were pursuing the RGD LED strip light option and home-running each coffer back to the equipment area so all power supplies could be located together and not stored in the ceiling crown.

I haven't quite finalized, but leaning towards recessed receptacles in the coffers like Spaceman and the 120V LED rope light that I found that was cuttable, but need to make a go/no go decision pretty soon here. I think that's the direction I'm going. I have some of the LED strips you guys bought off ebay, but haven't played with it yet. It's all piled up on my desk. Not enough time in the day.

I got my new leg! Seriously.

I started making my daughter a desk over the weekend, a "L" shaped desk, 5'x6' x 24". She had the perfect spot in the corner for it, so I made a frame, screwed it to the wall and it needed one leg, so I ordered it from tablelegs.com. Will post some pictures later of the finished product.

Need to paint it before I mount it, then trim out the rest of the desk. A couple of hours on the weekend and that'll be another thing out of the way.






Now I'm thinking about making my own table at some point, maybe something rustic for the wine cellar. smile.gif

Finished product (needs some 1/4 round, but basically we're done). I built the shelves yesterday and hung them today. She's out with the wife, she'll be so surprised when she gets home! The leg looks great, too.

Here's a pano of my workshop. Messing around with an app called "360 panorama" on the iPhone. Pretty neat stuff. Works well, but I have to play with it some.

Buds workshop in pano Zoom out before you spin around.
