The insulation guy said "go ahead man, take as much as you need"

Good thread - it's nice to see some builds where people had to do serious work to the infrastructure before tackling the theatre aspect! I can empathize since I ended up taking the entire pad out of my basement (90,000lbs of concrete broken via hammer and carried up the stairs eek.gif), steel-braced all the walls, and redid the entire electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. That sort of killed the theatre budget, and I've been on hold for a while.

Can you tell me exactly which Sakrete product you used? Was it self-levelling? We poured the new pad ourselves, and had a buddy power trowel it, but there's a couple of spots that I need to level out.

I used Sakrete's High Strength concrete mix, it wasn't self leveling.

Wow I'd say that's a pretty good deal on materials! Looking good Rich.
