No worries, I hope the owner of this theater doesn't mind! Good luck with your build!

I've got issues with PMs, not sure why. I thought I was over my capacity, but I cleared that out. I think there is a setting somewhere that says you can only receive PMs from those in your contact list and I don't know where it is the change it, so no PMs until I figure that out I guess.

*VERY* smart man. I've been lucky to have visited a DE designed theater built by the homeowner. It had a great layout and sounded wonderful.

You can't go wrong there.

I think you're doing fantastic with Sketchup. It takes some getting used to, that's for sure. I found that it was helpful in slowing me down. When I'm downstairs I just want to DO something but when I'm up at the computer I can just daydream a bit in Sketchup even if it doesn't look like a photorealistic rendering.

Well, you have to start somewhere. I have a loft I need to build for my daughter and before I can even do that I need to get my workshop in order. My son was a big help today getting some lumber and putting a few walls up in the workshop today. Got snot day or two before I've got the rest of the walls in, electrical run, drywall in there (they left a bunch and I hate a framed wall that's not finished). Once I have that done, I can get myself organized tool wise and start to do some things.

Couple of shots.



Bench I built a couple of months ago (that's drywall on top - hence the plywood in the other picture).


Finished walls from today. Plan on doing the left side and a close in that back wall.

Bud,
OK that's a start. Now that you're making sawdust - it won't be long

No that happens AFTER you build the theater. If you were cooking this would be the appetizer course, or is it the soup/salad course? I forget the way it works. Not too many fancy schmanzy restaurants in RTROSE's daily comings and goings.

Good to see that you are getting the cobwebs dusted off on the ole' construction muscles. It DOES get the juices flowing.

Regards,

RTROSE

Bud did you ever get my PM?

You are correct, the shed phase is after the build a coffin for your daughter phase (which really was a toy chest phase) and that was after all the home theater accessories like signage, backlit movie posters and ticket windows phase. BTW, I kept the ticket window, but did leave the poster frames. Sorta regret that now, but what the hay, I've got some new ideas there as well.

REGARDLESS, I'm already itchin' to down there and finish up the workshop, I forgot what my chop saw sounded like as well as those .22 caliber nail in concrete guns .

Yes, got your PM, finally got that working too.

Quick update: Been working the last two-three weekends in the workshop and finally have some progress. Electric is completed, drywalled, mudded and primed the workbench area. Bench is installed with new shiny plywood top and shelf. Most of my crap is now off the floor. I have framed out the next wall and closet and have some purchased some insulation (yet to be installed). One more wall to frame out and some electrical to do... Will keep plugging away.

I do feel like I'm getting SOMETHING done, even though it's not quite theater related. I do expect my in-laws to be staying with use again this summer, so my goal is to at least have some demolition done, including pulling the existing wiring and getting my father-in-law to run the wiring based on the plans for the theater room.

Good work, Bud! The workshop will be used for years to come, I'm sure!

the .22 caliber nailer is by far my favorite tool. I went went with the hammer style, but it is all the same, FUN!

More framing, electrical and insulation in the workshop, going to pick up some drywall next weekend and get that done far enough to put some cabinets and shelves up and get the rest of the stuff off the floor. I'm also thinking I'm going to have to install a utility sink.

Side note, the return from the main flow split in half at the furnace. Walked into the room yesterday and was like "huh?". Not going to fix it myself, getting the HVAC guy out on Tuesday.

Getting there. It'll definitely be a room I'll be proud of all said and done.

I prefer the trigger type, only requires on hand.

HVAC guy came out today, he took care of the return and we talked some. I had gotten the name of the HVAC company from the original owner, they had provided all the detailed info about the house. Turns out that these are the same guys that put in the original system when the house was built. He knew the house better than I did it seemed. We talked about adding a return in the theater room, which should be easy since I'm going to tear out the ceiling. We also talked about the "panic" room - he called it that. Apparently the wife was a little paranoid and wanted to have a system installed with a solid door and some panic button that would lock then in the room. That didn't happen, obviously, but the room is done.

It would be like that Bruce willis movie, Hostage, where the kids lock themselves in the closet or bathroom...the kid goes nuts and set the house on fire around them. At least I think that is the movie.
post #177 of 762
Or, like that movie with Jodie Foster where her and her daughter become imprisoned in their own house. Can't think of the title right now... It's on the tip of my tongue... It'll come to me eventually...

Panic Room. Which also featured a very young Kristen Stewart of Twilight fame!

Reminds me of an old episode of the Simpsons where Homer recounts a movie he saw with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves....."The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down"
