Yes an Update is due, When the drywall crew called to postpone I rallied some local troops in form of a hands on workshop and we got the two layers up in the room. Big thanks to Popalock, ArmyGuy, Snipe4real and Onevoice2.
Here are some pics of the process which actually wrapped up last Monday.
We rented a lift for the ceiling
A layer of 5/8 plywood went up for projector mounting purposes,
somebody once asked how you do an outside column, like this
Fist put up up one side sticking out
put up the adjacent sheet and use the edge to score and snap the piece sticking out
doing the putty padded outlets, a black crayon
this one is for Ted
What the room looks like
Some fun with blue tape, showing screen and soffits
Next some mock up work on the interior design elements and colors. We are planning just some 2 inch deep pilasters not columns with speakers due to the width of the room.
Pilaster design mock up in MDF and pine
In place with proposed colors (Damelon's leftover fabric)
I've been working on the soffits and lighting last week and will post some pics of that work this week.Edited by BIGmouthinDC - 8/12/12 at 5:49pm
