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 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.

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!!!

I really appreciate these videos. It's nice to see an example in video of how to do certain things before I go ripping down my walls in January. Looking forward to it!

I'm looking forward to this one! Partly because it means you're getting closer to completion and partly because you'll be using sound soundproofing techniques I hope to do as well.

Awesome man! Your going to love your journey!!! Are you considering two layers or three? Your time is approaching swiftly. I have most of Episode 6 shot, but I want to cover door installation first in this episode so I'm holding off on uploading the episode for now.

Right now I'm planning for 2 layers drywall with GG on all walls and ceiling with clips/channel. The ceiling is going to use the blocking method you did for the ceiling to keep the ceiling slightly higher and then either 1 or 2 layers of drywall between the ceiling joists under the subfloor. I have about 200 sq ft of mlv with staples through it due to my terrible approach last time that I'm trying to see if I can use at all too, lol. BIG suggested cutting it into strips and addinf it between the joists so I may do that or just use drywall.

I just don't know if 2 layers of drywall or 1 layer of drywall/mlv under the subfloor will be too much weight or not so I may just do one layer between the joists and then the DD/GG on clips and channel. Looking forward to door video! I'm sure there are lots of noobs out there like me that haven't installed things like that and will find it very helpful!

What kind of screw to be used? 1 1/4th inch of wood screw? Thanks!

No problem, buddy! I hope you find them helpful! Episode 7 is nearly complete. Only riser construction remains to document.
