Riser closed, columns done

Slow and steady wins the race or something, right?

Last week, I closed the riser in with two layers of OSB. I finished cutting and assembling all the MDF for my columns. All of the columns are...

I wired up my Grafik Eye, just to get rid of the temporary light switch that I've been using in the room so far. I haven't actually mounted the GE box to anything yet. I'm waiting to figure out...

Riser Framed, Columns and Trim Started

I framed a riser up using 2x6 perimeters with 2/4s as joists. I had originally planned for a taller riser, with maybe 2x8s or 2x10s, but I scaled back because I didn't like how it would work out...

Stage Framing

The stage is mostly framed. I used 2x8s for the top part of the stage, and I'm going to add a lower step to the front- same basic design as a bunch of other AVS theaters. I plan to use a hardwood...

It seems to me that Granroth did a satisfactory job of debunking the conventional wisdom that sand-filled stages reduce bass transmission to the outside of the theater. I'd say the burden of proof...
