DAY 8 & 9Furring channels
went up and double layers of drywall
I can already sense that strange dampening effect when you close the door and feel cut off from the noise of the outside world. I was encouraged to see the contractor bring the printed instructions from the Soundproofing Company for the installation of the Whisper Clips. He already explained the process of using Green Glue and Whisper clips and brought the instructions for the laborers as a reference. That actually gives me more confidence. As a physician there are times that I go back to reference material to make sure that I don't make a simple mistake with writing prescriptions or ordering tests. I'd rather risk being perceived as "unsure of himself" yet correct in my practice than seen as a confident know-it-all who makes simple yet costly mistakes. I know he hasn't done 200 theaters just like this so I expect that he'll make frequent references to the plans and instructions.
Question.....How do you respond to the question "So how much did this cost ?" from people that see your theater ?
A. None of your business !
B. Some people like fancy imported sports cars, I just chose to get a home theater that everyone can enjoy.
C. I hope you liked the movie. How are the kids ?
D. Why do you ask ? I can point you to a designer who can help you design one.
E. If you have to ask, you can't afford it !
I guess it mainly depends on who is asking and why. A fellow enthusiast may need some direction and inspiration (D) while a collegue may like it, afford it but wants a basic idea of the cost to get inspired (B) and a neighbor who has very little interest in HT just wants to gossip (A or C).
How do you handle that question ?Edited by Bitten by HT - 7/21/12 at 8:33pm
