Looking forward to seeing your screen wall. I'm just about to start mine, though haven't finalised the design - I'm leaving painting until it's built, as I'll be doing the cutting in situ, so don't want dust and stuff all over newly painted trim.

Got the second coat on everything. I like it, it's really what I expected (knew that doing the ceiling first) and I think the fabric and the sconces choices will really make it work well. The counter from may need a little touch up, but I'm done (except for the doors). I'll work on the doors this weekend if I have the time. I wanted to get everything out of the way that I had a dependency to get the carpets in. Think if I get the screen wall done tomorrow night I'll be pretty much wrapped up for carpet. I'll wait to put the fabric in once the carpet is installed, but I have plenty of things to get done before then. Also, two things. I noticed both my doors stick a little. Not sure if it's all the rain and humidity lately or what. My OSB on the floor, there are spots that did not adhere, so you can feel it move. I've used a little construction adhesive to fix it and it seems to work (cut a hot with a small hole saw, insert construction adhesive, plug hole). I've also shot a few concrete nails/anchors into the floor in spots where it won't be noticed under the carpet and mat. Anyone else have issues like that?

Pictures - here you go.

Great work Bud! After being away from the forum for about a month, it was cool to have so much to catch up on!

I can't wait to see your carpet and screen go up!

BTW, once again: that's a gorgeous pup, give him a pat for me!

Yes. I used Tapcons of sufficient length to go directly into the concrete Considering this couples your floor to structure, may not be a great option in your situation. I also ended up laying 1/4" Luan plywood over the whole floor. The millions of Staples you use to tack the 1/4" ply to the OSB will keep any other lifting in check. Make sense?

Hey Doug, welcome back. Hope all is well.

On the final push, hard to believe I'm almost there since starting this thread in October of 2011. The last 5-6 months has been pretty busy and I'll looking forward to a break.

Yeah, makes sense. It's only one board that's bad, although there is one or two other spots that I noticed. One of which is under the seats, so I'm not too worried about that. I'm more concerned about feeling nails under foot.

Worked on the screen wall tonight. Relatively straight forward, but I think I need to make some adjustments. I'm a little concerned about the framing in front of the sub, it blocks it some. I only added the lower support because I thought the screen frame also locked in on the bottom. It still may, I used both cleats on the top and maybe one was for the top and the other the bottom. If I don't need the bottom one, I could take out the 2x4s and that would buy me a few inches. The height of the screen (the inside top and bottom of the frame is exactly where it should be according to the plan. The bottom 2x4 extends past the screen fram because I was going to use track to secure the fabric. If I pull the bottom one, I could just build a frame and fiction fit it under the screen, that may add another inch. I could also pull the top frame because that area I had to build do to the HVAC restriction and couple raise the whole frame a couple of more inches, not sure if that'll have an effect on viewing and new fatigue. I guess I'll ping Dennisl.

@BIGmouthinDC Any thoughts?




Here are shots with the wood painted and the frame assembled and in place. You can see the bottom (lighter black) of the 2x4 versus the black velveteen around the screen frame.

from the White Oaks project. the extent of the false wall framing.

\


Not a fan of fabric track for the front wall, I like to be able to take it down and put back in under 10 minutes, can't do that with Track attached to framing. So I build frames and wrap with fabric, held in place with Velcro strips, like 8 inches in each corner. It is OK to block the subs with a little bit of framing, check with Dennis may you can lower yours a bit.

Thanks Jeff!

Here's the response I got back from Dennis on the 2x4/sub issue:

"At 80 Hz, the wave length is approx. 14’ feet. A 14’ wave is not likely to be annoyed by a few 2x4 supports."

I guess I'll leave it.

I can always pull the screen off if I need to get behind it. It's very light and easy to hang. I've used the frames in the past and they work well though. I've got the track, so I'll give it a shot this time. If I do everything right, I won't be getting behind the screen anytime soon. It's not like I can fit my fat body through the side of that screen wall anyway.

No real theater work last night, just cleanup. Started really in the workshop. I think I had a least a foot of sawdust from all the MDF and boards I ripped. That crap was also airborne and was on everything. I guess there is something to be said about dust collection systems. I spent a good hour and a half with the shop vac cleaning everything off and putting tools away. Two big bags of sawdust and trash to get rid of. Tonight I'll start working on putting tools and other things away so I can start to cleanup and make room for carpeting (two weeks) and the wood floors in the rest of the basement (10 days). Still have a few things to do outside the theater room over the next two weeks. I'm hoping to attack the door treatments in the inside of the theater this weekend. I think I see some bright thing at the end of the tunnel.

Not in your case though, looks like the home stretch.

I'm usually at Home Depot about 8 times a week. This past week I went to HD to pick up a few minor things and talk to the floor folks about pulling off the base molding off my order. I've been going in and buying it, but the estimator had added it. I left it figuring I would pick up all the stuff ahead of it and install it, but realized he didn't spec the same base molding I already had.

Anyway, while I was in there I went by the kitchen section to look at granite for the theater counter. I spoke to a woman who must have been new and she was telling me I need drawings in order to get measured and order granite. I was a little confused since I knew they did their own measurements. After a few questions from me, she passed me to another guy who seemed more knowledgeable, but could get into the system to get me an estimate.He got in, but it kept asking him about the store and some other stuff. Eventually he working on the estimate and it then it stopped him because the cost for the granite was below their minimum of 900.00. After talking to him about it, I would have had to either upgrade the granite or upgrade the edge to hit the minimum. After some back and forth he hands me a printout for an estimate of roughly 1200.00. It would also take 4-5 weeks.

I had gone during lunch, so when I got back to my desk I called a local place. We talked for a bit, I gave him the dimensions, the style edge, etc. He said he'd have a guy come out tomorrow at 9:00 AM and if I wanted to proceed, I could get the granite installed that afternoon. All for about 625.00. Half the price and same day service. I met with the guy yesterday morning and I wasn't available in the afternoon, so they're coming on Monday to put the granite on the counter.

Even though I haven't started my theater yet (soon!) I still go to Lowe's or Home Depot several times a week. Maybe we should buy their stock and recoup a few $$?

Worked getting organized in the workshop and storage areas, it was a mess and I need the room to move furniture this week because the floor is coming in next week. I worked on the closet yesterday, got that drywalled and the first coat of mud, then went to HD to pick up stuff I need to do the doors today. Started about 9:30 Am and just finished. Bushed. Tomorrow I'll sand the areas I filled and put a first coat of paint in the trim. The theater entrance took a while because I had to think through it and was super careful. The concession area door took a lot less. I had two real issues. One was marrying the 2" track above the door to the 1/2" track (the jam was bumped out just a bit). Probably smarter to put something under the track to make it even with the two inch track, but of course I did it the hard way. I need to bump it on top about 1/4 inch. The second issue is harder to fix. You can see one of the tracks is slightly tilted. I'll have to extend the lower part just a hair to even it out.

I also had some cleanup to do in the theater to get ready for the granite guys tomorrow.

Forget to mentioned the door knobs. I did order them, they ship out this week. In order to do the track around the knob, I temporarily installed the track and from the other side, took a fine tip Sharpie and traced the hole on it. I then took the track to my bench grinder and worked the shape so the knob pieces wouldn't have any issue. Same with the acoustic treatments, although I just used a drywall saw for that.

I still need to order the longer screws and that 1/4" square extension, but want to wait and get the knobs first.

OK, well, granite is NOT coming today. Something about an emergency at the shop. Supposedly they were polishing the slab and were going to put it on the truck at 1:00 PM, but now this. So now we'll wait and see what happens tomorrow. Scheduled for after 2:00 PM.

Lets see, nine holes of golf, two coats of paint on the doors and another coat of mud in the closet. Tomorrow, either casing or tile breakage or both. Every day is an adventure.

Doors were still not dry and not closed tightly. Theater entrance:

This is an amazing build! I love the slightly retro color scheme too. It reminds me of a rep cinema I used to frequent in high school.

Hey, thanks and welcome to the forum.

Sorta reminds me of an college library or something. Maybe a should build some bookshelves and fill them with books.

Technically, most are DEs ideas, I just put my twist on things. Take what works for you!

Granite arrived and was installed in like 5 minutes. Love it. The dark spots and the blue/purple are just reflections/light positions. I'll add a little MDF trim across the front of the steel bar and little cove or quarter round under.

Trimmed out some doors tonight in the basement, include the outside of the theater room entrance and concession area door. Went back to HD ("Surprise! Surprise" - in my best Gomer Pyle voice) to get the base molding for the rest of the basement as well as the remaining part of the floor order they've been bugging me about. Did not get to breaking up the tile. Tomorrow night doing the base molding in two rooms and two closets and starting the tile breakup. Hopefully that'll all be done. Thursday, moving furniture out of the way in preparation for Monday (got hoops this weekend). Told my son we've got Directv coming next week, the flooring and carpeting, the seats and everything will be functional by next Friday. The week after I'll do the fabric and sconce install. TWO weeks to go!

Well, broke some tile tonight! Did about a 2x6 foot section in front of the french doors into the basement. Did not go as planned. The pneumatic chisel didn't break anything. I only used it to get up the crap under the tile. I broke all the tile with a sledge and it took two hours. Piece flying everywhere, I ended up with a few minor cuts on ml legs and arms. I work eye protection...got hit in the face once, but no damage. I also got 90% of the base molding done in the rest of the basement. My son helped, but he's not the handiest of kids and needs detailed instructions for the smallest things. I guess he takes after his mother. I have a door I ordered from Lowes that should be in Monday, so I can install that why the guys are here working, then finish up the base molding. Tomorrow we move all the furniture in preparation for Monday. I may get lucky and get a few hours in with whatever leftover stuff I don't get done, but we'll see.
