Looks Good - great progress - no "snail's pace" here.

Seems like you are getting very serious about mid-low frequency reflections from that back wall:
- With the mineral wool and fiberglass what is your combined total absorption thickness?
- I assume the facing on the fiberglass top layer is to make sure the room is NOT too dead for upper frequencies?
- Will the facing be painted dark, if so; what are you plans for the final back wall covering ....

thanks Cuzed2 when I built my double wall in the rear I used 2x8s to frame the door that way with 2 layers of 5/8" DW and GG I had just short of 3" of the 2x8 exposed. I used 2x4s 2 deep to frame where the crown, chair rail, and base molding will go with 2x4 ripped to 3" coming up the columns. The Mineral Wool and fiber board are both 1 1/2" so 3” total. I will staple fabric to the framing and install the door trim and molding to hold it all in place and cover the staples. You can see the framing in these shots where I framed around the switches. Yes the FSK is to keep the highs in the room at least that is what I have read.

On a side note the HVAC was turned on in the house Thursday and the theater room with the 4 supply’s and the cold air return was the coldest room on the upstairs unit. We were going to make some dust so I was blocking off the returns. As soon as I put my hand up there I could feel the air being sucked/pushed through them so splitting the single return into one on each side through the soffit really worked well.

Nice, Bill. Good position to be in to damper excess capacity vs. suffering with insufficient capacity. It the theater going to be zoned separately or will you have a remote temperature sensor in the room to activate the system when needed?

Looking good, looking really good. Is this project turning out to be a lot more involved than you had initially planned? How is the wife feeling about this?

Maybe with it taking some real shape, it's easier for her to see that it's going to be an awesome space when it's done.

How the wife feels eek.gif then mad.gif then oh that looks really good smile.gif As we say in the Army there has been a lot of mission creep but when you look at a lot of the nice theaters here than no I would say I am on track. In my mind I see the finished product it just takes some convincing of the wife. Her most used line is you keep adding more stuff to do we will never be done. biggrin.gif She was against the columns (takes to much space out of the room and will make it look small) stage (where are the grand children going to sit)and why do you need the oak on the riser and other stuff like that but when her friends come in she explains everything in detail. All my builder can say is damn I have never seen anything like this in a home rolleyes.gif

You know, I'm not one to harp on tradition, but most kitchens have a sink smile.gif

J/K, I'm guessing it's next to the dishwasher in that second pic. Kitchen looks great! Love the vent. Is that an induction cook top?

Oh, and the theater is coming along nicely as well!

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

Looks great! That cabinet finish goes well with the black granite. Those pendants look like they were made for the space as well. Looks like you guys have a good eye for decorating! I'm envious!

I ask about the cooktop because we had to have the cable to our induction cook top replaced (twice) because they undersized it. Apparently the electricians in our area have not put in many, and didn't realize what size breaker/cable it needed. I actually had to double check with the manual that came with it, and have them come out one last time to put in the right size.

I will have to check on the cook top but it is the one the builder uses when folks upgrade so I am hoping the electrican is familer with it.

It's easy enough to check. I pulled out the manual and it was very specific that it required a 50 A breaker. A 50 amp service requires a #8 wire I believe.

All this is a non issue if that is a conventional conduction type cooktop. smile.gif

small update but is not theater related finally completed and moving furniture and tons of boxes in.
Front of house they are still working on screned porch in the rear

here is the drive my workshop is on the right notice the door was only 7' vise 8' tall like the other bays.This was to accommodate the ceiling being 1' lower for the built in riser.

over the weekend we were waste deep in boxes and had to put them somewhere so a quick trip to Lowes and $160 in lumber and screws plus some well deserved beer after the sawing stopped this is the wall seperating the shop from the other garage bays cool.gif

That carpet looks very nice in your pictures, and not nearly as nice in the phone pics. I guess the camera makes a huge difference! Anyway, nice choice for the carpet, you are getting closer to "job complete" on this.

I didn't get to the trim do to the unloading of boxes and painter finally decided to show up Sat. I’m like **** can't trim now. So we decided to go get paint to match the red carpet and fabric I will use. I figure Red is red if the columns and coffer match the carpet the fabric on the panels will look good even if the red is just a touch off. At least that is the lie I am telling myself. After we got back Scott started pulling the outlets buried under the carpet pad out and putting on the plates while I worked the switches. I am just putting in standard switches with a manual dimmer on the sconces. The automation is to come later when it is on sale.

here are some shots of the carpet. The guys took over 2 days and I think the last 1/2 day was on both the corners of the stage where all the nice angles and the step join the column. It looks great.


here you see the cat 5 for my LED strips on the steps

Dude said he went to all the pattern courses and is qualified. He was right. from step looking down


some shots of the corner

As luck would have it he was the sub contractor the builder used for the rest of the house and since my wife got the carpet from the same shop the builder uses and it all happened before closing “bonus he paid for it all!!!!” biggrin.gif $2k for the carpet and whatever the floor guy charged him to install!!! Builder kept saying I know there are some cost overruns in here somewhere I'm thinking yea like the sconces, carpet, extra lumber, OSB, drywall delivery charges and so on! smile.gifcool.gif

If someone ask me how much my build cost I will have to say $400,000 because that is what the house cost and other than the sound proofing stuff, insulation and screws he provided me all the materiel.

Yes but what do you think finishing the THEATER added to the cost of just having a normal, mundane room? It sounds like the actual cost is "unknown" or "undefined" since a lot of it got built-in (no pun intended) to the cost of building the house.

1) The carpet guy did an awesome job with pattern matching
2) Room looks great, I know that it will be finished soon and you will get years and years of use out of it. Do you have any plans for the first movie you will watch, or are you excited for Football to get started?

This might be buried in this thread somewhere: Is building slab on grade common (or required) in GA, and what is the square footage of the whole house?

I'll field the first part. Yes, it's very common to build a house on slab in the Southeast. The frostline is only a couple inches at most, so there's no need for a deep footing here. Only deep enough to support the walls, so there's no need to excavate much unless the house is being built specifically with a basement.

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

floor plan called for 4200 sq ft but I know I am larger as the theater was suposed to be 18'x23' but was 20'x 23' prior to drywall. they aprased it at 3955 sq ft without the theater which is 440 sq ft

Correct normally the only basements you find in the south east are walkout due to house being built on a sloped grade or something like that the soil is either sand or clay around here. I lucked out since this was prime pasture I have some really good top soil but it did not take them long to hit the clay. There are also a lot of ponds around here which is another reason. You don’t want to have a pool in the basement. For the well they hit water at 200 ft and went another 50 ft for good measure I am getting 26 gallons per min which is unheard of.
