My New Years Resolution is to keep this thread updated. Obviously I didn't accomplish much this Fall so maybe this Winter will be better. I can't believe that I thought I might have this done at Christmas. I must have been drinking. If i was only doing a Home Theater it wouldn't be so bad but trying to finish 2,200 sq ft by yourself is slow going. Here is the update:
Finished all the insulating, put Intergrity Gasket on all the floor joists (that's the green stuff a couple of pics below) and started drywall with a brand spanking new drywall lift I bought for $80
Ordered 2 25' Series-1 Belden Bonded-Pair HDMI cables from BJC
Ran cables through my conduit for my projector...anyone have any suggestion on how to terminate 2" flexible conduit? Does Carlon make anything? Right now I just cut a small hole for the cables to come through the ceiling but I would love a neater solution.
Here is what it looked like before I started to drywall
Any suggestions for terminating that 2" beast behind my AV rack?
I also bought this fun toy as a Christmas Gift to myself. It's a holiday tradition I like to keep. You see I buy something and then the wife yells "That's your Christmas present!". Ah Yes, the sounds of the holiday.
Tried to buy the Berkline's at Costco but as you can see I am nowhere ready for seating and she called me out on it.
So I would like to have drywall finished by end of January but seeing I have wasted every other timeline I think I will make it end of February. No way am I mudding and taping, I'll pay some poor sap for that.
PS. Why didn't anyone tell me how freaking heavy 5/8" drywall is???? I think my back is broken.
