there is something very interesting in this picture. Look at the hinge position on the jamb. Totally opposite what you normally see. The door opens outward but the face of the door inside the theater is flush with the drywall. This allows acoustic treatments to be mounted on the door and they will be flush with those in the theater. Looks like Steve Kujala did a great job on your custom doors. Is that a totally mortised drop down bottom seal?

That's exactly why I wasn't going to mess with building a door myself or trying to order something through the big box stores. Steve did a great job and I swear that thing must weigh 300 lbs. Here are some more pictures of the seal. The last one is from underneath the door.

Got that last strip of acoustic mat in, now I feel sorta complete. Cuts a lot easier with a sharpe new razor. That's probably it until the weekend. Hoping to get plywood to cover it and get that installed, then onto the stage.

Who is this Steve guy? I am in need of a custom door and so far a week of phone calls around my area hasn't amounted to anything promising. It's like if it's not standard they don't care about the extra money envolved. Weird but to each their own. If they make enough regular extendended jambs and custom doors that are standard sizes to push away a client then that's their call. :-(

Not too bad. Just moved to Houston. Have a little 13x13 media room pre-built in the house I bought. Expecting to rip it to the studs within the next year and build it back up the right way. I have a lot of unpacking, re-furnishing and what not to get through first (and a new job to figure out). Looks like the superbowl will be on the 55" plasma this year.

Houston, huh? Big change there. I know what its like to rip it out and start over. Hopefully it wasn't double drywalled!

No big change here, just that the acoustic mat is complete. Assuming we don't have a bunch of snow, I'll get plywood tomorrow and get the floor finished this weekend.

That is a good looking ceiling! Please give my congratulations to your new knees on their stilt work!


Glad to see you charging back at it!

Hey Doug, thanks.

Having the stilts helps, you really pay attention to what you're doing when you're on them. I just made sure the mud had enough water in it and worked it well so I didn't have a lot of bubbles. Goes on smoother and less sanding. I have a few spots to touch up, but going to wait until the coffers are in and I'll double check everything again.

Wanted to get plywood today, but haven't venture out yet in the snow from last night. We had maybe 2 inches.

Been awhile since I checked in. Looking good and looks like lots of progress! LOVE, love, love the door! Gorgeous! Regarding the picture of you in stilts, I have always wanted to try them out, but I'm too much of a chicken %$#@ to do it!

Well, it looks great, so congrats.

We got about 1/8", so of course FedEx used that as an excuse to push delivery of my two new MiniDSPs til Monday. Not like I rushed delivery of the Blue Jeans Cables or anything...

Thanks for checking in. You should have a go at them, really not bad at all. Just make sure the floor is clear!

Picked up ten sheets of 7/16 OSB for the floor yesterday. Got a late start this morning, but instead of rushing through getting the floor down, I'm going to take a few days to put it down. Why? Well, as I got adhesive troweled on and the wood on top, it started to lift a bit due to the curvature of the OSB. I started using buckets of water to keep it down and eventually ran out of buckets. I'm going to do a few boards tomorrow and finish up later in the week.

Sometimes there is just not enough buckets. Looks like even though you are taking your time your supervisor approves of the progress.

Yes, he wants to be right there all the time, had to lock him out of the room when putting the adhesive down, so he was very happy to get back in there and hang out.

Thats what happens after your build, you stop building and watch movies! Except if you build more or have a part two. Done both of those as well. Big is the man though, he's like the Everyready Rabbit!

Headed down to the theater room after a somewhat ****ty day to discover that the one board that was very flat curled up length wise. Look like it was trying to do a swan dive. I really tried to pay attention to the perimeter of the boards so they had enough adhesive as well. I didn't bucket this puppy because it was the flattest board I had amongst them. I popped a 1.5" Ramset in two of the corners by the wall and put all the buckets on the other corners, hoping that maybe it was still sticky underneath. If it doesn't help, I'll hit those corners with some good ole construction adhesive and stand on it for a week.

Wish I could have brought some of my many buckets over but most of them have holes or cracks somehow. Hope you're able to get everything straightened out (pun intended) . And sorry to hear about the bad day, that's not cool.
