I have been moving along on my pre-carpet punch list over the past week...
Carpet should be installed around the end of next week. I also finished the riser steps and equipment room step. There is one layer of ply left to add in the equipment room and then I need to cut the vent holes in the riser.
I ordered doors today and they should be ready to be picked up on Friday! I don't have a final price yet, but they should be simlar to what others have mentioned. I'm getting two 1.75" thick prehung doors (32" for the equipment room and 36" for the theater entry) for around $500. One will have a 4.75" jamb and the other will have an 8" jamb.
Yup, 8". It had to be that big so that I could cover the gap in the double stud wall...and the gap had to be that large due to some obstructions that I didn't want to change. Given the weird sizing and height issues, the pricing seems reasonable to me.
Next steps are to select grills for the riser bass trap ports and a door threshold. I found a place that sells cool granite thresholds, so I am going over there tomorrow. I also picked out a base trim profile. Once I finalize my color scheme, I will be able to paint and install that.Revised Color Scheme
- I'm really on the fence on making a change here. I went to the paint store this weekend and looked at some colors that would compliment the colors in the carpet. I ended up with a sort of tan/gold color for the walls and a chocolate color for the panels. Some brown samples should arrive from GOM today. The lighting is terrible in this pic and the colors are much deeper than they appear, but here's an idea of this option:
I think I like the slate gray color I have on the walls now and I'm going to stick with it. I will either do graphite or black panels with black base trim & crown. Do you all think the color will be too monochromatic if I go with black panels? I think that if I do use black panels I will add some sort of trim around them...Damaged Chairs
- The Theater Seat Store has been great and new chairs are being delivered on Monday. No hassle from them at all - I just sent pics of the damage and new chairs were on the way. I'm very impressed and as long as the replacements are acceptable, I give them a big endorsement based on their service and resolution of the issue.
So it looks like I will have a busy weekend, but I should be ready for carpet in a week!
