Two slices of pizza ( 2 for $2.00 at Speedy's) and an extra strong 5 hour energy drink after loading up.

3 cups of coffee along the way

Leftover banana nut muffin from the hotel (Sara lee) That was what they considered a "Free Breakfast" and I typically grabbed one every morning even if I didn't plan to eat it. Two if they had chocolate.

3 meatball sliders and Utz chips from Sheetz at Breezeway.

No Ice cream this time.

After getting home I got take out for Dinner, Boston Chicken 1/2 chicken special for $7.99 with green beans, creamed spinach and corn bread.

I'm betting Big hasn't slept in 48 hrs after 3 coffees and a 5 hour energy drink.

I haven't really decided yet.

Looking great! What is the acoustical treatment material? How high does it go off the floor? And why did you put fabric right next to the drywall? Seems like you could have saved on fabric by just covering thee posed fiberglass surface. Thx

Another awesome creation Jeff! Now get ready to come work on mine.

Combination of Linacoustic and 16 oz polyester batting (actually two layers of 8oz). The exact height of each is proprietary information of the designer of the room but has been discussed in at least a 100 threads in this forum. There is no fabric next to the drywall, Doing just the fiberglass area would have looked awkward given the column design and the differences in treatment specifications around the room. It was not the same. This plan covered all of the walls with fabric hiding the fact that there is a varied treatment strategy around the room.

So that is what we did


When you put the first layer of OSB on the joists, did you use Green Glue or Liquid Nails over the joists? What is recommended? Thanks

I would assume liquid nails on the joists...green in between the layers of OSB.

I would recommend using PL Premium to glue the OSB to the joists instead of liquid nails. I don't know if liquid nails is recommended for use as a flooring adhesive or not.

The joist tops were covered with the paper insulation flanges from the insulation that per plan was suspended above the bottom communicating air gap. Glue would have been pointless so we screwed the crap out of it. Information on that aspect of the design should be directed to The DE group. I haven't bothered with glue on other projects just a pile of screws. Glue couldn't hurt.

Carpet was installed today. It is Stainmaster's Silver Lake from Lowes. Chairs from Roman are being delivered tomorrow and granite bartop hopefully this weekend.

I would assume the paper is just for protection against squeeks as thats what my framer told me to do when we built mine this past weekend. But who knows there could be some magic working in other ways.

Paper on top of the joist was to suspend the insulation not about the squeaks.
post #291 of 363
Well glad framer had me do it that way since Dennis just had it drawn on my plan. Framer said to me, "we can either put insulation flaps on joist and only glue the tongue/joints for decking, or we can staple insulation between joist and glue everywhere".

I chose to put flange on top of joist because framer said it would help with squeeks more than glue would.vIn any case I guess we got lucky and did it the correct way!

Yes, but I still have a fairly large punchlist. I knocked out a few items over the weekend. I hauled the chairs down to the theater and built them. Then, I hauled the granite countertop down and set it in place. I think the college kid who helped carry it laughed his butt off about the # of breaks I needed. Here are some new pics.

Nice Carpet!!! wink.gif

I love your granite bar in the back. I wanted to do exactly that myself but my theater depth request was denied by the wife. Looking good!

Tell me how you made the columns?

I didn't get any of that detail in my plans. What level plans were you working from? Does he have dimensions showing where the speakers and acoustic treatments should go? Mine are drawn on a 2D wall, but plans don't say where exactly they should go. Same for all the woodwork and the ceiling. Tim mentioned CAD & blueprints in his build thread... does he have anything that resembles blueprints? I have a collection of PDF's that look like they were created with Visio. I'm not sure I have enough detail to build the room. How did you treat the front wall? Do you normally have to figure all this stuff out for DE designed spaces?

All the plans were 2d, From what I recall nearly identical to yours. The details for the riser were different on my current project as the instructions were to fill the joist cavity not leave an air gap.

Print your plans full size and you can get dimensions that are missing using an architectural scaled ruler.
On the wood work, all the plans I've seen show the general shape and location of the finishing details but it is up to the owner to pick out final molding profiles etc. The ceiling plans are probably the most lacking as there are just a bunch of lines depicting the coffered ceiling general shape, Building from that is going to take some research and planning.
