Okay, that makes more sense. I started with 7' 8" from concrete to joist, and was jealous that you were able to fit soffits in. I ate up 2" for my subfloor, and the ceiling was another 2 5/8", so I'm...

Soffit/Proscenium Help

Okay, I've drywalled my entire HT, and need to get the curved soffit above the stage framed up, but I'm at a loss on how to do it. I've looked at flex trac type stuff but I'm missing out on something...

If you like mold, put carpet down on concrete. Even with a good vapor barrier, it'll wick moisture up.

Yes, I ran another 14/3 line into the home theater and put a box in for the detector. I decided that I would always be worrying about it if I didn't.

Mud and tape won't be fun, but at least I'll...
