Starting point: 80lb solid core door from Lynden Doors:

DSCF3275_zps69521ceb.jpg



A shame to cover a nice birch finish but sound isolation comes first smile.gif

DSCF3278_zps9d683af2.jpg



Add 3/4" MDF layer:

DSCF3282_zps5b445a35.jpg



Borrow my neighbor's drill press:

DSCF3265_zpsff54b34d.jpg



Drill door latch hole into spruce:

DSCF3266_zps3e40ed61.jpg



Rather than drilling the usual large hole for handle mechanism I went with this:

DSCF3269_zps7d36ac8f.jpg



Cutout ready:

DSCF3283_zpsd405e918.jpg



Glued and screwed into place along with 3/4" MDF edging which will support fabric track:

DSCF3289_zps14a89067.jpg



The flipside:

DSCF3287_zps55fc2cb7.jpg



Door now weighs 130lbs and adds some damping. Next is to cut down the key stock I bought to address the door thickness.

Man that is a big (heavy) door. Please, please, please buy and install appropriate handles/locking mechanisms built to handle that kind of weight. I know this sounds like it is obvious but having been locked in a theater (bunker) before is can be rather traumatic. Depending on who you get locked in with of course. biggrin.gif

Also make sure you have some extra Heavy duty hinges as my solid core door only had 3 hinges that were not heavy duty and it sagged at least a 1/4" after I installed it mad.gif

RTROSE / W00lly, I hope this setup is sufficient for my door. I can afford to be locked in the bunker for a while but any sagging in that door will cause rubbing on the door jamb. So far so good.

Corner chunk trap:






I managed to install all the 2" treatments on front wall without any fastening - friction fit all the way smile.gif. This product had a black coated layer so no need to cover with any fabric:

I wanted to avoid having to fill and sand all the screw holes and joints in the vertical section of the soffits. I found this brown felt roll with peel and stick backing at Fabricland at clearance prices. They also had matching felt fabric that I will use on the bottom portion of the soffits and the columns:

DSCF3301_zpsae613e5a.jpg


First section is up. Peel and stick, I like how it turned out smile.gif

Carpet has been installed for a while. I'm a horrible photographer but this gives you an idea of the color. I had a close call with the installation. The roll they sent me was short from what I ordered. The installer noticed as he unrolled the final piece and it literally stopped at the wall eek.gif He didn't even have to cut it.

It's a 3lb density 2" thick fiberglass by CertainTeed. This product has a black coating: "For applications requiring an exposed, black faced, sound absorbing insulation. "
It cost a bit more but the black coating provides a nicer finish that doesn't need to be covered with fabric. It essentially has the same acoustic properties as the uncoated version which they also sell.

Laying out the brown felt for cutting in strips that are to be applied to soffits. I used masking tape to keep me straight:





Square profile track on soffits. I used my multi tool to cut a groove for the 45 degree corner:




Fabric installed into track at both ends using pizza cutter:




Corners:

Thanks guys. Any suggestions on a first movie - preferably something recent. Thx

Start of 6" on back wall:




Down below on back wall:




Final layer is reflective. I left last foot or so non-reflective to possibly aid in riser bass trapping:

Nice progress. One suggestion is if you have any more track to staple go perpendicular with the staples. There is a surprising amount of tension when you get the fabric in the track.



What fabric and color are you going to use?

Curved front soffit with black velvet into track:

Led strip lights along soffits:

DSCF3357_zps62d847d8.jpg



Can't decide between the blue and red:

DSCF3364_zpsd311c878.jpg



I had the carpet installer leave a gap for riser/step lights:

Peel and stick:

I think I prefer the red:

Nice work on the LEDs. Those step lights look great. I'm partial to blue in my room but that is what's great about color changing LEDs, you can switch them up at any time for a change of pace.
