If you build as fast as you demo, you'll be done sometime next month!

Keep it up - both the work and pics

I have some theater construction updates coming later this week and will post plenty of pictures.

On Saturday Dennis e-mailed the suggested speaker layout - most importantly where I should recess the four IST UXL-18 subs in the rear wall. I hope to get started on the re-framing later this week, starting with these sub recesses.

I reached out to a number of different insulation companies to see if any one of them had a tool to cut down the foam and might want to take on this small job. I didn't get any official takers, but had one side-job offer to do it for $400. Yeah, won't happen. However, the same guy suggested that I use a horse grooming product called a curry brush to rasp away the extra foam.

I think I'll get rid of most of the bulk with my Sawzall and then smooth the surface relatively flat to a 2" depth with this curry brush. $6.00 for the brush...$7.95 for shipping...grrrrr.

I reached out to ask my wife what the heck is a horse curry brush.......she's the horse expert in household.

When I told her the intent and purpose, her response, "That's a first!"

Hey, whatever works!

Sometimes women can't think outside the box!

That foam seems like a sharp pain scraper would work just fine. ???


Or get one of these like a big boy

Looks like HYDE makes a 24" sawzall blade for foam. You might have to call to find a distributor, though. I couldnt find any online.

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!
