I have several things left to do:
- Put down the radiant heat mats in the bathroom and hire someone to tile over it in the bathroom
- Get cabinets, sink, toilet installed, and the rest of the bathtub faucetry.
- Install the doors. They are sitting downstairs right now just waiting for it.
- Paint my casing and baseboard trim
- Cut and install casing and baseboard trim
- Paint door frames and doors
- Patch/touch-up paint trim, casing
- Install closet shelving
[You may note I'm not back to the theater yet - well the trim/doors include the theater
- Get carpet installed
- Hang closet doors
- Put weatherstripping around theater door (I bought a solid core door for the theater room)
- Install the rope light. I'm going to be cutting it down to the _exact_ length and do some resistor trickery with the last 2' section to get it the exact length I want.
- DIY shelving in the equipment closet
- Finalize equipment list (receiver, projector, speakers, screen, repeater equipment, bluray player, streaming player, power conditioning, etc.)
- Purchase and install equipment (except for screen)
- Bring down the furniture (wife will cheer!)
- Evaluate various screen materials, all while watching on a sheet. Get a feel for seating distance and screen size we like
- Finalize seating distance and screen size, purchase and install screen
- Build riser for 2nd row of seating and carpet it (going to make it a bass trap)
- Do acoustic measurements (REW or whatever I decide to try)
- Acoustic treatments
- Realize at this point that I'm still not done...
@ Chris: The masters program I just started is pretty intense. I had 150 pages of reading and several hours coursework this week alone, and I'm only two weeks into the intro course.
Plus keeping up work full time. I think I'll only get any significant work done between classes, provided I'm not in a coma by then
I have a 2 week break in March and 2.5 month break from the middle of May through end of July. My hope is to have the equipment purchased and rudimentarily installed by the end of July. We'll see how it goes!
I don't expect to have the acoustic treatments up at that point. But I'm hoping the screen and riser can be done by then.
