Equipment in the mechanicals room makes sense also. All the stuff that makes things happen in one area. I'd be sure to set up some water leak monitors in a couple places though!
A very good point....snacks, ect. really should be before theater entry. Oh yeah, there will certainly be water leak monitors up there for sure! Can't get the equipment soaking wet.

When putting in 2 layers of 5/8" with GG between both layers and between that and the ceiling is it easier to screw in the first layer of drywall w/GG then do the second or build the two layers together then add them to the ceiling ?? I don't know if the second version is scientifically flawed but seems easier.

Also, what size screws should you use so you don't overpenetrate the above floor? 1-5/8"? 2"?

kind of depends on the thickness of your sub floor, assuming it is 3/4 and you are putting up 5/8 drywall you should use no longer than 1 1/4 for the first layer, even if you have hardwood floors, don't send the screws into the flooring, otherwise you will never be able to make changes in the flooring at some point in the future.

As for putting up two layers at once, I like to stagger the seams.

I apologize in advance, I asked the screw length question in the other thread as well...

I may just do that. House my super-computer of the future and the equipment in a rack, and maybe also add blu ray storage shelves in there well. Thanks Rich.

The Beast and I are rehearsing for our off off broadway play, The Theater King.

It will be a musical with dancers in tool belts, we just need to find some music and showgirls. We already have studs and a theater project.

Another good entry, Brolic.
I wasn't sure what I was expecting with the sump pump relocation - I suppose I expected a complete relocation, but it makes much more sense to me now. Just a little shuffle off to the side.
It was amusing to see your genuine worry about the ceiling coming down with the removal of the header in the doorway!

Thanks Thrak! Yeah, the sump pump wasn't a massive relocation to another room or anything, but my gosh--it took the plumbers literally all day. I underestimated the labor involved just with breaking the concrete, digging the dirt, hauling it up my basement stairs and around the house to their van, etc. There was a lot of work involved in that undertaking for sure. Man, that worry about the ceiling coming down was REAL!!! lol. I had never done structural work before. Even with the structural engineer's plans (who was a genius PhD whose company is based in Alexandria, VA), I still had a bit of concern regarding implementation. Thank God all went as planned!!!
