So sorry to hear about all the snags! My house was 3 months behind schedule and I thought that was bad. I feel for you! I'll be keeping up on your progress since we will have similar bunkers.

I'm having some heartburn on 16:9 and 2.35:1 this week. Luckily that will be one of the last things I decide on. I had the chance to stop by dhendrickson's theater last week here...
