Grabbing lunch and sucking the blood off a cut on my finger, managed to hit it with the drill bit, I can truthfully say that Ive left a little blood on this one, walls are 1/2 drywalled.
Oh, come on Big, you can do better than that. We need at least a few sentences about how you made a blood sacrifice to the gods to ensure a smooth build. Or was that just a warning that a not-suitable-for-younger-viewers picture is on the way?
What a minute, I just realized you posted this at noon. The picture at midnight only had drywall on the ceiling. You two got all the drywall up on the walls between midnight and noon?
every one wants pictures so I'll do some pictures and have to add explanations later. Highlights of today include a day long visit by Fotto who really pictched in heiping with the riser and the kerfed stage front board. THANK YOU.
I also managed to convince the homeowner that it is an AVS rite of passage of every theater builder to carry a ton of sand down the stairs to the basement. Third time in a row I've dodged that bullet.
Lastly the future theater builders buried a time capsule in the stage sand.
BIG hangs the last piece of drywall
stage and riser with three layers of OSB with Green Glue, edges not trimmed to size yet.
It was a pleasure working with BIG for the day! If anyone needs a hired gun for a HT build, he's definitely the man for the job.
Regarding the kerf cut 2x, mainly due to improvisation using materials on hand. The local Lowes was a bit "lean" on material selection. There's one heck of a lot of cuts in that 12 footer. I was nervous it was going to crack moving it around afterwards.
This is my first post ever in this section, and years on this whole site. I have a theater room which I built over 7 years ago mainly by myself. I knew practically nothing but it turned out decent. Anyway I never pulled permits or had anything inspected. So the reason I am posting this is I have been reading a TON of builds for over a month now and wondered how many do this according to codes and get permits, and who just build with out them? I was debating tearing it down and starting fresh the legal way.
I truly apologize for derailing this thread, I just did not think it warranted it's own topic. And I have been following BigMouthDC and his builds and am impressed with his skills and speed. The people in this section are so kind and supportive of one another and so helpful. It is awesome looking over all these cool builds and learning, and I look forward to see how this one turns out too.
