Thanks so much for sharing the inspection tips. Great stuff.

You inspired the shower and the rock bar. Craig used rock that I really liked, so I guess my build really is an amalgum of the finest ones here. Just wait until I ger W00lly's screen into the theater!

congrats on passing the inspection.

and the rock Craig used is very nice looking. I can tell you that style of stone will be much easier to install. Plus you won't have to worry about grouting which would be nice

I just checked out Woollys screen. Wow!! that is huge! Very Nice!

I take it you're going with 2.35 scope then? What size are you planning on?

Going with 2.35 was a last minute change for me and I'm so glad I went with it. Now I get pissed with a Movie comes out on Bluray and is 16:9.

Anyhow, you're getting pretty close to end, keep it up.

Awesome, glad you passed. Electrical can be the toughest. There are so many things that you 'should' know but have no way of knowing.

Final should be a breeze. Just be sure your stair railings (if applicable) are code. That always has seemed to be the stickler on my finals that I've had done.

Old.

Yep, I visited a few theaters with 16:9 screens and one with a 2.35 screen. I was sold the minute I saw it. I even arranged for a second visit to the theater with the wife and kids in tow to see how they liked it. Needless to say, the decision was made on the spot.

I have about 13.5' on the screen wall. I think W00lly left about 8" on each side. If I do the same thing, that leaves 12' 2" width for the screen. That would be about 153" diagonal 2.35 screen (dimensions would be 12'2" x 5' 1" tall).

I'm still working out the details, but I really want to go as large as possible.

The inspector left a few moments ago and I passed the final inspection. He was impressed with the quality of the work and put my PASSED sticker on the breakerbox!

Wooo Hooo! City thinks I'm done!

Brit -

I don't know about you, but my assessment just tanked. I don't think finishing the basement is going to hurt any from what it WAS.

Hey CJ, thought I would check in and see what you've been up to. Lots of progress! Congrats on passing the electrical. I think your bar is going to look amazing with the stone veneer on the front. And I love the lights you've chosen

Keep the pics coming!

Thanks, Craig. We did go all out on the lights!

They were temporary so that we could pass the electrical and final inspections. They'll get replaced as soon as we make a bit more progress and get some of the dust generators finished (tile and bar front).

Nice Progress!

I have reviewed your thread several times - nice workmanship.
A question (apologies if I have missed it in the thread):

Hoping you can share the dimensions/footprint of your bar area?

I am planning a similar angled corner bar; and will start out with a wet back bar against a wall in the corner, and will add the front ("customer') portion of the bar later. For now; I am tiling the area under the bar area and am curious of your floor layout dimensions? Thanks!

Thanks for the note and the compliment. I'll measure the bar area this evening and update the thread with the dimensions. I'll be working to tile the bar area this weekend (hopefully).

First off your space looks SPECTACULAR!! And the color you used is perfect I love it and want to steal it. Now on to this comment.......I have a screen wall that is about 13' wide by 7'2" tall and was planning on a 16:9 screen but now after reading your post here I am beginning to think that I should consider a 2.35 screen. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this setup vs. that of the 16:9? I know that 16:9 is most of the hd tv feeds as well as sports on tv. SO I assume that the 2.35 is better for bluray? And that it possibly gets rid of the black bars on the top and bottom so that you dont have to mask? If I am correct then how does it then show 16:9 feeds? And if I am incorrect can you possibly sorrect me? Sorry for the "rookie" question but I am new to alot of this and everytime I look into another thread I get even more questions

Steve,

There is a world of 2.35 information just a click away: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/forum...prune=30&f=117

Definately read the FAQ page. It answers all of your questions and more.

It would be worth your time to read this thread. A completed theater with a 2.35 screen. Mark also has the New Panasonic projector which does a great job of simplifying a CIH set up without the need for a add on lens.

I drew up this layout to help you visualize the dimensions. There are two issues with this drawing...



The measurements should be 5'9", 2'2", and 7'8" (top wall). I couldn't get them to show exactly correct in Visio. The top will be 18-24" wide. The soffit above is 18" wide. I plan cabinets behind the bar and on the wall directly under the window. I'm also putting a sink under the window in the center of the cabinet.

We're looking to make the bar front rather impressive as it will be one of the first things you'll see when you come down the stairs.

We really fell in love with the fireplace that Craig [Strange_Brew] did in his place. That got us thinking about stone veneer. We have settled on a product called StackedStone from Eldorado stone. The two colors are

Alderwood:


Pagosa Springs:


Here's a primitive mock up of the bar in Alderwood:


In Pagosa Springs:


I didn't spend a lot of time working to get the colors and perspective just right, but this really helps me see visualize what the final product will look like.

That's the winner right there IMO. If you do go with the stone veneer please take lots of pictures - I haven't found a good thread that has it documented well and I'm very curious how it all goes together and how difficult it is.

Thanks!

Alderwood for sure. The other one looks too peachy. Unless of course, you want your bar to have a peachy hue to it.... Just kidding. Seriously though, unless they look different in person, it's not a difficult decision.

My vote is for Alderwood as well.

If you recall the wall in my greatroom that had the barn wood planking, we want to replace the wood with exactly that color/type of stone.
