Half a point is for seriously good trash talking. Both guys have been on their games.
Hmm....I guess I'm not the guy that walks away after all.
I'm not concerned. If I hired professional contractors to build my room from scratch like Dave did, it would have been complete long before the Savoy. Dave just insulated, painted, hung a few acoustic treatments and helped put together a couple of MBMs...and yet *HE* built the theater.
I could also dredge up several hundred e-mails exchanged as I took time out from my construction to help him with his room design. Oh, snap!
^^^This has to be worth at least 2 points!
- Didn't work much on the theater yesterday, but continued with the sub box glue-up
- Pulled down the framing for the rear, right and front walls so I could spray foam insulate the rim joist areas today
- Ran to Lowes for 2" PVC fittings so I could reconfigure the basement HVAC intake. The way I ran it before was OK, but conflicted with an intended decoupling bracket mounting point
- Removed a bit more green spray foam to preserve full 2x4 wall depth for traditional pink fluffy insulation
Today I am spray-foaming, insulating the outer rim joist, putting all the wall sections back into position, installing blocking for the future baffle and screen walls, and installing all the decoupling brackets I have time to install. Tomorrow I will complete the low and high voltage wiring runs and insulate. Inspection is on Wednesday. Additional sheets of drywall delivered on Wednesday afternoon or Thursday (not sure yet).
I'm going to install as much of the first layer as I can by myself and then precut all the other pieces so when help shows up on Saturday morning we can get right to the installation. I'm hoping the room will be completely drywalled with both layers on Saturday and I can do the first skim coat on Saturday night. Second and final coats on Sunday then prime early Monday morning before work.
The following weekend the theater is going on a 6-8 week hiatus and loaded with all the building materials, furniture, etc. while I finish the main part of the basement. This was always part of the plan.
