Thank you very much for this thread. After reading the thread, your FAQ, and seeing the pictures, I decided I will do GPower's Fabric Frames in my dedicated home theater (construction begins in February). I also appreciate your tending this thread for other Fabric Framer want-a-bes.
I have a woodworking shop on the same level as my home theater so the build will be very close to the install. I also feel my experience with picture framing and paneled doors will help. On that note:
Given that I will construct upper wall and lower wall acoustic frames, hang them with a cleat at top and velcro at the bottom, top of wall will have a built-out crown molding lower than the ceiling to allow for rope lighting, bottom of wall will have base board fastened to Dri-Core sub floor, special frame over in-wall speakers,
wall penetrations are 1) projection room window in rear wall, 2) seven in-wall speakers, 3) four sidewall sconce lights (may place these in columns),
Did you crafted each frame for a particular place on the wall?
Do you think it is possible to generically build frames and then just hang them in the next available space (given rooms are not square/plum)?
Or do you see a problem with gaps being visible?
I like what you did in the corners but notice it required frames without the bevel on the inside edge - meaning special corner frames vs. generic. Can you envision a corner treatment that would allow an inside beveled edge?
Attaching the baseboards to the Dri-Core sub floor allow for a pocket at the bottom of the wall for 'fitting'. How about the same cavity at the top of the wall under the crown molding? The fabric frames could then be 'stacked' bottom to top.
I am many months from wall treatments so have plenty of time to plan, plot, and consider your invaluable feedback (Greg, et al.).
