Any luck on the close-up of those boxes in the riser? Thanks.

I used the same adjustable boxes and just snipped the "teeth" off the metal plate. Typically, the teeth bite into the side of a stud when the box is wrapped around a stud. Those can be bent off with pliers allowing the metal plate to sit flush with the face of the riser.

exactly

I cut on the black line with a quality metal snip.
then screw it to the face of the riser/step with drywall screws though those two small holes. Leave flush for carpet installation adjust for the thickness of the carpet.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who modified that box. I just did the exact same thing as Spaceman and BIG this weekend. Works like a charm.

Thanks for the pics. Makes much more sense now. I don't have metal snips so I'll try to use the bend method when I get to that point.

Tin snips are pretty cheap and a great tool to have around.

Looking back at the riser - no bouncing with just those little supports on the 2x10s???

Thread Starter 
the 2x10s are supported in the middle with a ft long board, that means the span is 5 1/2 ft, there is no bouncing.

Looking great BIG! But would anyone expect anything any different?

For a minute there, I thought it actually closed and opened your beverage for you. I was ready to put my Berklines on Craiglist.

I love that soffit.

A cup cooler! who thought of that? problem is it makes a hum/buzz. Maybe under a beverage it will be muted. I really like the electric headrest adjustment.
post #103 of 227
Awesome! At least now I know what's holding you from coming over. rolleyes.gif

Love those sit, beverage cooler? Power headrest adjustment? what brand & model are they?

What brand/sheen of black paint did you use on the ceiling & trim?
post #105 of 227

Ceiling: started with Behr Ultra flat, and it was too sensitive to finger prints, Ended up with flat enamel and you can wipe it, you can touch the ceiling when standing on the riser and being able to wipe it clean was a must. A little bit too shiny for my taste but it is what it is.

Every place else Behr Ultra eggshell.

Gary those seats are Roman's (RSH) seats Fusion Escapes. It is a firmer than average chair with excellent creature features such as the adjustable head rest. A word of caution is that the seats are best for individuals of better than average girth. Onevoice2 showed me how he is practically swimming in the seat and he has to swing his arms quite wide to comfortably rest on the armrests.

Wow Big! Amazing as always. Last time I checked in you were building a shed, this is simply gorgeous. You have inspired me again.

Thanks for doing what you do!
post #108 of 227
If you don't mind me asking, could you give me a ballpark range of how much it would cost to do something like that? And I'm talking just the construction portion of it not the HT equipment and seats.

Really amazing job!!

I got this from Wayfair and it was perfect. They have a couple of different heights.

I tried to fix that cost table today. At least it is left indented now, but tables don't paste very well into this forum. It doesn't like saving the "Spacing".

I think RTROSE has an extra stand you could use biggrin.gif

Looks outstanding. You do good work. cool.gif
post #116 of 227
Wow--I don't get in here as much as I used to (just can't get settled with the new forum look). This one was worth the visit. Very nice work!!
post #117 of 227
Big, did you all have any trouble covering the mdf screw hole patches with paint? Can you see the patch at all?
post #118 of 227
And, what about the panels? Did you all make them and fill with acoustic material? If so any pics of them and attachment methods? Looks great!

Screw holes no proplem, Wood filler and drywall mud sanded well and primed. A lot of them got covered with molding.

Panels: ripped 1 3/4 inch wide strips of 1/2 plywood and MDF, stapled and glued them together. Cut bevel on table saw. Linacoustic in the usual places. Attached to the wall with Liquid nails and 23 Ga finish nails.

Good stuff my friend.

Did he have everything calibrated yet?

I can imagine how small he looks in those chairs...
