Hi Bud,

Seems like the last time I looked in was about 11 years ago when you were on your last build and I was living in China.

What equipment are you installing in the rack?

Build looks great by the way.

Getting close to the finish line Bud, don't sweat the small stuff!

We're all here with you, and take this like the first time you cut yourself in there: It doesn't count as DIY 'til the first time you bleed in there, AND the first time one of your tradesmen screws you over on an install date.


Pretty soon you'll be in there, watching a movie, and you'll catch yourself looking around thinking of upgrades.

Trying not to, but I don't like things when they don't come to plan. There's more to it than just a remeasure. They had to special order the wrong floor when they had the floor I wanted at another store who had it in stock. They lost the remeasure information, they ordered the wrong base molding and shoe molding, they tried to charge me for moving furniture, installing the base molding and shoe molding, delivery, etc. They make me wait a month for nothing, then cancel on me without telling me, waiting for the installers. It was a complete disaster. Carpet should have been in with seats installed on Friday. I'd be wrapping up fabric and be fat, dumb and happy at this point. Not sure there was anything left that they could have screwed up. The attitude on top of the carpet screwup put me over the edge as well.

Regardless, carpet is ordered and waiting for the schedule guy to call, it should be in about two weeks. I'm going to move ahead with fabric this weekend, minus the bottom sections, since we're not doing the tournament thing this weekend.

Bud

Ended up with the Silver inwalls (mounted on wall) for the LCRs and the Bronze 4 inwall Surrounds. The subs are the on wall cinemaplus silver subs. Sounds amazing.

OK, it looks like we're looking at Wednesday morning for installation of carpet! I used Broadway Carpets, here in Knoxville. Good guys.

Fingers crossed. They had a cancellation, so I jumped right in of course.

Got some fabric up and the sconces installed. There track works well, although it is a little time consuming. You basically have to alternate sides to make sure everything stays square. I would get the fabric tight, then cut the holes for the electric and pull it tight again. If there was too much extra, you trim it and push the reminder back into the track. The corners are the toughest, especially if you have too much fabric your trying to stuff in there.Tomorrow I'll work on underneath the soffits. I'll save the doors for Monday. Oh, and I used one of those spinning laser levels in the room to make sure all my sconces we at the correct height. Worked well.

Here are a few shots of the soffit. I'll do some sort of crown or other molding around the perimeter and "L" molding on the edges where you can see the MDF, like I did the coffered ceiling. I'll paint it before I put it up this time. I cut out the holes for the 4x36 vents, but since I just painted them, I wanted them to dry until tomorrow before I put them in. I'll also work on the doors tomorrow.




One thing that worked out well is we had two six foot portable tables and I was able to put them side by side to work on the fabric panels or length wise to do the soffits. No crawling on the floor. I was also able to put the fabric right up to the edge and use a drywall square to mark things. Worked well.

Hey Bud, things are looking really impressive. The sconces in the middle of the fabric panels look fantastic, and I think I'm convinced using fabric track seems like the best way to go. About how much did it cost, and how many linear feet did you need?

Thanks. I'm going to have to figure that out for you. The track wasn't broken out cost-wise as part of the overall invoice I got. I also had some left over which I'm going to see if I can send back.

Well, did not work on the doors yesterday. Did some things around the house and had the return to the house of ill repute (Home Depot) to return the 9 extra transitions for the hardwood flooring they over spec'ed, 6 extra pieces of plastic for under the hardwood (that I didn't't need at all) and 248 feet of quarter round that was the wrong size. After almost 15 minutes of standing in the return line and another 20 minutes working to actual return the items, I managed to get about 550.00 refunded. I did buy new shoe molding and 2" crown, which I paint two coats on and am planning to install that tonight under the soffits.

Carpet coming tomorrow!

Just got the call, carpet has not been delivered to the store, so we have to push until Tuesday of next week. It's now suppose to be in either Friday or Monday, hence the delay until Tuesday.

Bought a 3U drawer and some blanks for the rack that I just installed - more coming. Did notice that I made a rookie mistake in haste, but unlikely anyone will know except me and now you. I put the rack in backwards! Doh! The vent panel is now in the closet and the knockouts are on the front. Oh well. Don't tell anyone.

Also, in haste, I forgot to keep a small piece of linacoustic for the projector box ceiling and bottom. If anyone has about three feet (by 48") they want to sell, please let me know.

That is all.

Bud
