I think it was at this point that we realized we were going to need a bigger boat. Triple leaf construction, riser with middle aisle, none of the three levels big enough for reclining seating, What were they thinking? And why did they have to glue it down?





One theater to go, of course we couldn't park the dumpster in the front of the house, thankfully the local 7-11 stocks guest workers

Why could the dumpster not be closer?

I wasn't at the site the day the dumpster was delivered and the interior decorator picked the spot! Actually the ground was wet and soft and there was concern about driving it closer to the house . Putting it in the front on the driveway was out of the question since the homeowners had been waiting for months for the house to be prepared for their occupancy and were happy to see the contractors dumpster parked in front of the garaged disappear.

Can you still achieve TOTAL dimming control with RGBW led rope lights? Dimming increments of 10% ?

maybe, LED bulb tech continues to evolve. The only way to tell for sure is to buy a sample and test it.
