some updated pics













the theater entrance drape hide out



lighted center console in theater




i like to glue the little guys on the large molding before installing. keeps them at the same level in a small tight space.


phantsam
it is nice to crank up the projector and kick back. It helps why I took on such a large project.


rsberg34
finally started up 2 weeks ago. been working on home made counters for the theater and lobby. (to sheets of cabinet grade plywood glued together) and cove base. boy does a miter saw help.
had 2 angles that are less then ninety degrees, wasn't sure how to cut those.

indygreg
no real drawn up layout. the room is 21 ft. by 14.5 ft. the rear of theater comes to sharp angles to the center.
the only layout drawn was by the carpet measurer which if you saw that you would have to laugh.

That 3rd pic looks so much like a Star Trek set - it's scary! I had to do a double take. Guess I'm just showing my age and my geekdom.

Well except for the lawn chair equipment along the wall We could call it Enterprise -- the early days

The room looks great. Good to see some updated progress shots. I love all the angles too.

I think the lawn chair is a staple of any theater construction. The chair you can stand on, paint over, do drywall mudding around and when the dust settles the equipment comes out and after 2 hours of watching a movie sitting in the same chair you count the days of when the 088,s arrive. screw the days, make that the hours or even minutes.

For 6.99 a chair they go a long way.

I think the star trek resemblance is because of the center console giving the seat behind it the captains chair. (my chair)

I am looking for a curtain system that would open the curtains like the doors on star trek. As you approach they open quickly then close with the same speed. that would be vary cool. I have found automatic curtains, but not with motion sensor on inside and outside of theater. much like ANY home depot, but for a curtain.

Larry, that has to be possible. Maybe some X-10 stuff to do the sensing?

Scott's on the right track with thinking about X10. Take a look at http://www.hometech.com/control/sensors.html#motion and scroll down to the Hawkeye motion sensor. I'd imagine that you could use that plus some other creative X10 components to put something together...

If any body is a English teacher out there,

I don't know if you guys have noticed but I have been spelling laranberg (larenberg) two different ways. I had the sign made by stargate cinema with 2 A's.
My theater theme A and E. Might just keep both.

thanks Bryan.

stargate cinema did a great job with it. very cool sign. the LED's are very bright in the sign. It puts a strong glow on the floor. I wonder why front projection isn't farther along using LED's. maybe 3 years out.

Larry,

Nice looking sink. We are considering doing something like that in our wet bar. Was it difficult to install? Any tricks i should know about?

Steve,

The bowl was a peice of cake with the chrome trap that was recommended with the bowl.
This type of bowl sits up high (around 7.5 inches). I had to return the taller (35in) base cabinets and get shorter ones (31in.) something to consider. you don't want the bowl to be to high. Hooking the chrome piping to pvc in wall is simple with a pvc adapter piece that will fit the chrome pipe. It was all virtually just hand tightened, accept the bowl to the counter top.Gave that a twist with a wrench. the faucets are from the Danze product line.
one other thing, be there when they drill the hole for bowl unless you drill it yourself. you want the bowl to lineup with the faucet and the way the water hits the bowl.

Thanks Larry. I forwarded pic of your setup to my wife for review. The wall color and counter color are almost identical to what we are using in our wetbar area.

no problem. one other thing, buy your sink and faucet it gives you an idea of size and height of the vessel bowl and where water spout needs to be. it is different then the standard setup. I ordered mine months before i had to install it.

Do you have any problems with water splashing on the red paint? Anywhere I've wiped dust or fingerprints off my red wall (satin gloss level from Sherwin Williams) it's still noticeable after it dries (weird). Just wondered if that was a problem or once you get it all wet it looks the same and it's no big deal? (I have a wet bar in my room and worry about that once I get the faucet installed).

Cool sink

Mike

that paint i got from lowes is a bathroom and kitchen paint(rasberry). when it gets wet it looks like it discolors it, but it always dries even with the rest of the paint. my paint is a semi-gloss.

Larry - the gaming area came out great, love the urathane floor and display niche.

So where did you get the 'Super Eagle Velvet?

thanks Mark.

handcock fabrics is where I got the super eagle velvet. i am pertty sure it is a national chain. I am lucky it is a minute away from my work. For me fabric stores are not easy to find. I can tell you where five best buys are located though.
