BIGmouthinDC travels to Ohio to help build a Dennis Erskine designed space - Page 12

The fabric goes on the higher of the two furring strips. The 5 1/4 inch high baseboard goes over both furring strips and is mounted 1/2 inch off the floor so the carpet can get tucked under. Should be a picture in the thread somewhere.

"I see!", said the blind man.....

So do the carpet guys get mad when you do that? Is it a pain to fit the nail strip and carpet in that space?

they would rather have a gap then have to trim flush. All the new home construction in these parts has the gap. As for the tack strip it is intentionally mounted shy of the base board. Pad goes up to the strip the carpet goes over tack strip and dives into the gap nice and tighty. Some newbie guys figure they will put up the baseboard after the carpet, so the carpet layers put the tack strip close to the wall then when the baseboard goes in it traps the carpet, have fun changing it out in the future.

I'm considering purple vs navy blue for my fabric color scheme. Floor will be charcoal / black / grey variant and I'd like nice stained woodwork.

the navy looks good in Mr Poindexters theater against the wood. I'm wonder how purple would look.

Any more pics of the theater ? I'd love to see your color more.
post #335 of 363
I'll try to take some pics tonight. I have quite a bit of purple material left over from the build. Let me know if you have any interest (I'll make you a good deal).

This crowd is happy to see a box of nails sitting on a shelf if it is theater related.

How many days did it take to complete the build with BIG there?
post #343 of 363
Thread Starter 
From memory the first trip ended up about 12 work days and the second about 10. The sub-floor and framing were done before I arrived.

Is there another thread for this build?
post #345 of 363

No, what do you think you are missing? BZbase did start a couple of threads in 2007/8 (under a different user name which will remain anonymous) where he solicited input on a room design and he included a couple of typical bare wall pictures of the raw space. He then purchased a comprehensive design from Dennis Erskine and that was the basis of the project.

BIG, did you ever post details about the bar? Did I miss them?
post #348 of 363
Thread Starter 
bars are 42 inches tall, the pictures show a temp top, BZBase added granite. You can use full sheets of MDF we just used up some scraps from the build. The ends were a three layer sandwich of MDF/OSB and MDF. Did that to save the width over a framed out end.

Note the outlet.

I wish I could see more pictures I love the purple. You don't happen to have any more pictures that showcase the color choice do you?

Hey Guys - I see the room dimensions but can't seem to find the seating distances, screen to riser, screen size, etc?

Curious to see how you squeezed false wall, two rows, and a bar in 23.5'

Can you guys post the distances of each - front to back?

Thanks!
Jim

Dennis Erskine worked the magic and developed a Signature level plan for this space. Get out your checkbook and you can get the same.

A few highlights

front wall to front edge of riser is 12.5 ft
front wall to back of screen wall 2 ft
96 inch wide 16:9screen
front edge of riser to bar is 6.5 ft.

From this picture it looks like you are using 2x2s for the "framing" of the linacoustic?

I believe in Big's other builds he is using two layers of 1/2" sandply plywood and was wondering which way to go?
post #356 of 363
Thread Starter 
The picture is one inch furring strips mounted to the wall except for the top which gets fabric before it is secured to the wall.

On the two layers of sandply that is one way I typically make free standing frames that get wrapped off wall and then hung later.

The choice of method is somewhat dependent on your wall design and what it going to work best. Covering big areas is easier with wall mounted furring. Running 4 horizontal panels between columns may be easier with free standing frames.

Then of course there is always the plastic track approach.
post #357 of 363
Hey Big - so did you rip the 1" furring strips to be exactly 1" or are these "as is" 1x2 store bought furring strips?
post #358 of 363

ripped them

OK - finally got a chance to rip my 1" furring strips.

It looks like you left a gap between the top furring strip and the soffit?

About how much space do you have there?
post #360 of 363
Thread Starter 
the picture is an illusion I left about an 1/8 inch in anticipation of the fabric, Just a FYI for this build the top furring was not secured until after they were wrapped in fabric.
