Observation,

If you start at the top of this page and then come to that scary picture of BIGmouthinDC--- you scroll down after to escape and it and it keeps coming up again and again in each quoted reply like a recurring nightmare you can't escape.

That's probably the most quoted and repeated picture in this forum in a while. I guess that means it's a success !biggrin.gif

Back on page 6, I was looking at the can lights you guys used.

It looks like you have both IC and non-IC can lights. Can you remember which models/types of can lights those are?
I am using the Halo H99RTAT 4" apeture lights inside backer boxes as recommended by Soundproofing company.

One question I had was that the clips they say "fits up to 5/8" drywall" so I'm wondering if they are going to work with 2 layers of 5/8". Also, those bulb assemblies look a little different too, are those the LED retrofits?

Thanks.

That was placed there for the drywall guy. He used a scaffold to mudd tape and sand and that piece of wood was placed the to keep the scaffold from rolling off of the riser.

you can usually forget about using the clips that come with a remodel can when you are talking about double layers of 5/8. I usually remove the clips and once the light is in position, put some screws throuh the side of the can into the drywall.

I'm don't know what bulb assembly you are referring to, we haven't put the final bulbs in any lights and none of them are LED. The cans we used in the soffit are Utiltech from Lowe's and are 4 inch recessed cans using GU10 halogen bulbs.

Big will be able to answer your questions, I am not too certain.

I'm interested in seeing how you guys finish this. I think I'm going to have a similar situation, but reversed (beam soffit shorter than perimeter soffits)

I'm interested as well, what we have here is a case of crown molding interruptus.

Great thread guys, awesome job so far.

I have a question regarding the entry door over your riser. Is there a step up on the outside of the room to get up that extra foot?

Thanks,

CLE

I don't think that is an entry door. If you look at the earlier pictures you'll see an entry door between the riser and the stage. If I remember correctly, the opening on the riser is for an equipment rack.

We expect to use rope lights that turn on and off. They will likely be clear warm white as the ceiling will be a really dark brown. LED versus Incandescent undecided. I would rather avoid the heat but haven't seem a warm LED that looks good. I'm open for suggestions.
