Scott--As a former Omaha-ian, I have been following your thread. Great job. One thing though---are you SURE you want to cover those columns in black velvet? I am far from being a designer/decorator, but it just doesn't seem to fit with the carpet and fabric you have chosen(which I think look great!). I have black velvet around my screen, but I wouldn't put it out as a design element. I have been working with 1/4" veneered plywood, and it would be a snap to cover those columns with it, trim out the edges, and have a nice wood transition from panel to panel. I am just thinking out loud FWIW.

I know what your saying but I am going to cover one and see how it looks. I saw another members columns and really liked the look. I would show you some photo's but the avs members pictures are all down. I plan to trim the sides out in oak so they will almost look like large speakers. As anything with this build I have been designing it on the fly

Now you put doubt into my design

I went over to my fathers today and ripped a bunch more furring strips hope I made enough. I ripped the last ones with my skill saw and they did not come out that great

We just wrapped ours in black janus. Ours were on-wall, which may have made things more challenging. But my wife did comment that she was glad we went with the janus over the expo since we had a bit of a tough time keeping things taught, and if the fabric was directional it would have been that much harder.

I'd go with something like dcpilgrim if you are going that route--something like black GOM(I have Anchorage Onyx, which I liked much better fabric-wise than the standard GOM--is that 701?). The oak trim would make for a nice look with black fabric. Have you gotten any black velvet yet? You might agree with me after you get some in your hands.

Yes I have the velvet and its not what you would think. its nothing like the fidelio velvet. I guess ill have to look at it a bit more or cover one column and see how I like it.

Scott,

I just realized you have the same chairs I've been looking at. The only thing I can't see is if they have a slight curve to them or are they straight across?

Thanks,
Judson

Hello All

Well I took the day off today but thought I would post my progress from the last 2 days. I finished all the furring strips except a few plug outlets and started putting some of the linacoustic up. I used spray adhesive to attach it to the walls and that seemed to work real well. will finish the rest tomorrow.










I also pulled the string into my smurf pipe for speaker cable and sub cords. I used the shop Vac to pull the string with ease on the end is a piece of plastic bag from one of the many trips to lowes

I found that rubber tip at Lowe's it really concentrates the suction

Looking great W00lly you have to be getting pretty excited now its really coming together
On a side note I haven't seen binder twine in awhile I used string for my pull throughs That takes me back to my childhood farming days .... which is probably why I didn't use it come to think of it

Looking forward to seeing the next set of update pics

Cheers

yes, close ups of sucking action!

were you able to find the end caps (yes i dont know the technical name) that connect you smurf tubing with the gang boxes locally? i cant seem to find them at the big box hardware stores. i need a couple 2 inch ones ASAP.

thanks.

Yes it is! I will check on it, but we only live 45 minutes from HTAuthority so I will check with them on pricing for local pickup, might be comparable, but thanks for the tip.

I have seen people say electrician supply shops have 2". I got some at smarthome.com It was pretty spendy, and I think you need to get about 50' of it.

Well I messed with a panel of exposure fabric today and I do not like it one bit I will be ordering something with almost no stretch. I can not believe how far this stuff will stretch making it way more work then it has to be. I also tryed a piece of the green fabric and it is going to be difficult enough to keep that pattern lined up. I am vary sad with this turn of events

I thought I was on the down hill slide now I am peddling up a mountian

I think aham was talking about the threaded ends that I used to connect the smurf pipe to my gang box's. I could be wrong though

correct.

i got that fancy spendy 2" raceway conduit from smarthome, but wasnt smart (ironically ) enough to get the threaded connectors. drywall is set to go this Monday, so my time is limited to get some.

its not that big of deal. i will find a way to secure the three runs i made to the gang boxes. it just will not be so nice and pretty as above.

later.

Hello All

Today was a big day I got some of my green fabric up on the wall
As I have been flying by the seat of my pants with this build and the design changes weekly I have decided to cover my columns in cherry or oak veneer. I'm thinking if I covered them in black fabric that would be just too much black.

My green fabric has a design alot like wall paper so I treated it as such when lining it up. I was getting in a groove when hanging it and think I should have the rest up by tomorrow afternoon. I tried hanging some of the exposure but found it to be too stretchy and with the slight pattern that it has just didn't want to even try to make it line up. I ordered some fabric with little to no stretch and no pattern. I hope to get it by the end of next week.

The wife and I still can't believe how well this fabric goes with the carpet

Here are a few pics

Great fabric! It's going to look amazing when the sconces go in over that.

Looks fantastic. I think the wood on the columns will be a great choice too.

Well done!

Thanks guys

Here are the sconces we picked. I ordered 2 of each. we liked them both so we are going to choose from the 2 which one will go the best in the theater and then we will put the other in the hall outside the HT. So when we figure it out I will order the other 3 needed
