Any reason why you opted to not use the recommended 3/4" osb for the stage/riser? Is t&g too hard to install?

t&g = pia

Three layers of 5/8 was approved by DE.

Absolutely agree with the T&G comment. I used it and it slowed me down substantially. I would stay away.

Would I seem needy if I said this thread shouldn't sit without update for 48 hours?
post #245 of 363
Big has been taken hostage!

Most likely been hobbled and chained to the Theater room similar to this clasic... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100157/

Actually I took yesterday off to rest up in order to go the distance. Went to the Rock and Roll hall of fame and the Cleveland Museum of Art. At the Hall the Marine Corp rock and roll band was playing in the lobby. Something about guys in buzz cuts their dress blues belting out a tune didn't seem right.

I'll look for some pictures of recent progress to post.

Some more details of the light tray.

The outer edge is two pieces of molding. First an upside down base molding



Then a smaller piece for the upper edge.



Works starts on preparing for the acoustical treatments and fabric install



test fitting of the speakers



Just as I left tonight



Should have some good shots tomorrow as the finish details start coming together.

Hi Guys,

I love this thread. The theater looks great! I can safely say that I don't want to go anywhere I don't have access to a computer for fear I might miss an update!

Quick question: How high the ceiling? What about under the sofits?
post #251 of 363
Two questions...

1. What color are the walls? I'm digging it. Apologies if it was posted earlier.

2. I'll be done hanging drywall tomorrow and will start tape and mud. I'm doing fabric frames as well so I'm not too concerned with a perfect finish on the walls, but does a flat black ceiling HIDE imperfections or make them more obvious?

Thanks. Room looks phenomenal!

Just some quick shots. I will backfill with explanations later after the last push to wrap this up.

Hey Big, what do you have for a depth on the bar counter? Looks to be about 2' on the plans?

I was going to build a 2x4 wall and plywood the returns to give it shear strength.. I like your method better.. Consider it "borrowed"

On the T&G subject, I think the difficulty is directly related to the cost of the product. I use Advantech T&G and have zero problems. With GG on the back it just slides into place with your foot. If you use the blue edge stuff from the big box stores the T&G never line up and you need a sledgehammer to get it into place. The catch.. Advantech is about 2x the price of square-edge 3/4 OSB.

Yes, I think the bar top is planned at 2 ft deep.

Finished the fabric today, Started the three part column installation and the the base boards.

with all the trim being sprayed, how do you touch up nail holes? I would think using a brush would make it stand out or no?

Looks Great... Much luck on the final stretch.

No, putty, sand, foam brush, at least that is what I told Bzbase to do. With 23 ga brad nails you have to look hard to see the holes. Baseboard molding all done. Next the projection booth doors, Hang projector and put fabric on screen. Install outer door on communicating door system.
post #258 of 363
maybe the foam brush is the ticket.

How hard is the stretching process of the material? I assume it is just alternating sides as you move out from the middles?

Is that GOM or just regular cloth of some sort?

It is not FR701 but is GOM. Ask Bzbase. For the Fabric did all the top on a loose piece of furring, Installed, then all the bottom, first tack the middle. Then out to each side. Then tack 3 and 6 o'clock then each remaining section.
post #260 of 363
I found the GOM FR701 I used easy to work with. It's not so much "stretching" it as it is pulling taut. This is where a reliable, pneumatic fabric stapler comes in handy. I found it pretty easy to pull with one hand and fire the stapler with the other. Just a good tug and hold to get it taut and then fire the stapler. Start with two or three close together on the top center, then get your bottom taut and line up the lines of the material and fire in two three at the bottom. Then just work your way out to the left AND right, top and bottom, pulling taut along the way. NOT all one side at a time. By the time you get to the ends, you should pretty much be able to just staple down as you already got it stapled top and bottom up to the end of the run. By then, there's not much you can do going down the side.

I can deff attest that it is prob very hard to see the nails. This is how all our cherry crown in our house was put in by my buddy and u can't see a thing even when looking!
