Busy day today, started verifying locations of my sconces to ensure they're in the exact location. Did one wall, the started putting up insulation. Tomorrow I'll drywall the closet adjacent to the room to help with sounds containment, finish the positions of the sconces and outlets and come close to finishing insulation.

Exchanged a few emails with Ted White today, ordering my green glue and acoustic mat next week. Inching closer!

Ted knows his stuff and has the goods. He helped me out in 2010 when I was looking to build my current room by answering some questions here, and John Hile answered a lot of questions over the phone. Great company to work with.

Looking at your photos, the framing of your bearing wall is warping a little. Could just be the wood, but it could also be a little bowing due to the pressure from above.

I'd suggest throw in some cripple studs to true up the 2x's.

I did a nifty doctoring of your photo and put spiffy text and arrows on it, but it won't show up when I reload the photo.

if the drywall is attached on the other side I wouldn't try to move the studs. Unless you want to patch and paint that finished room.

I think behind that stud is the equipment closet. I'm not sure how much pressure is really on it with the four 2x6s right next to it with the header. I think if there were other really noticable warping/bending on all those studs, I'd definitely pull them. The other side of the right side of that wall is the bathroom, so you've a vanity and a toilet right there. Also on the right side is another sister wall (in parallel) with the plumbing running through it, I guess they didn't want to put the plumbing through the load bearing wall. I wrapped, putty padded and acousitcal caulked all the friggin' holes, plus it's double insulated (just need that last piece on the right).

in reality you could probably take that warped stud out and never know the difference, but since it has drywall just leave it. If you can't sleep at night for fear of the house falling you could always just insert a nice straight one next to it

Been sleeping in the house for the last five years and it hasn't bothered me yet.

Back from vacation.

Just ordered my GG supplies from Ted. Hopefully my doors have started. Now on to ordering drywall.

Acoustik (Serenity) Mat, Green Glue, Adhesive, Sealant arrived. Met the truck at the bottom of the drive and just loaded the back of my truck up. Managed to get everything down in the basement with the help of my son, minus the mat. That stuff is heavy. Thanks Ted!



Did I mention my kid is 6'6.25" at barely 16? He's got a 6'9" wingspan to match. Lots pf basketball tournaments coming up starting next month at over the southeast.

Doors are ready, minus the custom part to match the existing doors. Should only be a couple of weeks now before I can get them.

Otherwise, been traveling on weekends for AAU ball. That's over at the end of July and I get my weekends back.

So how is the room itself coming along? Did you get the Serenity Mat installed? Double drywall in progress? I like seeing your updates.
