Fall Frenzy, Curve Frenzy, Man of Steel theater (You pick) - BIGmouthinDC hits the road again -... - Page 9

post #241 of 983
^^^^Well then we were on the right track with our initial guess. If I was going to continue to do more construction projects, I would look into the 90 degree driver, that would have been very handy/advantageous during several parts of my build.

I see the second one happening biggrin.gif since it is taking twice as long for everything than we originally planned for eek.gif Big may post tonight with more pics of the rope light and electrical.
I'm about to post a WANTED sign for you to release Big home! mad.giftongue.gif

You can get the motor in either corded (shown) or battery

I saw that the other day thought it's a pretty good multi purpose tool.

If you were there to help us out with my theater then it would have finished long time ago and Big would have been back at your place! wink.gif

Don't think I posted a pic of the Walkout Mobile Workshop. There is some leftover OSB, Free for the taking. Come by after work, don't ring the bell.

post #245 of 983
I really wish my place had a walkout basement. If I would have a choice in my next home or build I would definitely go for that option. Really is a nice feature to have a wide open space just outside of the theater.

Big, are you getting the itch to head back East? biggrin.gif

You guys are making excellent progress! I was looking at a cordless right angle driver at HD the other day. They are pretty slick. Them rope lights sure are bright! biggrin.gif

Vik / Big - Can you show a photo detail underneath the lip of the step? How far do you intend to bring the carpet once you wrap the steps?

Keep up the great work Vik...even when Big leaves! You're definitely on the downhill side of the build when all the details are finishing details that you hopefully don't have to touch again.

Looking forward to more updates.

Thanks! I'll certainly try to live up to your expectations. Like your theater, there will be a lot of curves involved so it was nice for you to share your construction methods. Looking forward to having you follow along!

Vik and Big,

You guys are majorly slacking on the progress pics! Same on you! Double shame! biggrin.gif

(Big if Vik is holding you hostage, send me a PM and I'll come spring you free)

Its all my fault. First half of the day went good. We went to Indy and got the doors we ordered. Second half of the day we were supposed to paint and, half way through i was doubting the color i chose for the soffits so everything had to pretty much stop. It felt frustrating. Looking forward to a good day tomorrow and post some updates!
post #254 of 983
Well at least someone is taking responsibility for the oversight. What about the color are you second guessing? The actual color or the color scheme? The overall concept you shared with me is classic so I am hoping it is the individual color you chose.

Good luck on your progress today.

Regards,

RTROSE
post #255 of 983
The actual individual color. It looks different when painted. I figured out what I want though. The issue has nothing to do with the theater picture i showed you since that theater did not have soffits.
Thanks I do need some good wishes!
post #256 of 983
Did you brace the 2x6 joists on the riser or let them free span. What is the dimension front to back. Thanks
post #257 of 983
Are you going to treat the underside of your soffits with OC703 (or equivalent)?

Because we could, not because it was required. Same reason we curved the soffits and put three layers of DW on the walls, Once you go over the top on one item you keep going and never look back.

Ally, yes mid span supports, the riser is around 8ft deep. Blip, no on the 703

DIYht, actually two of the four outlets are just passing through the equipment room and will power two dedicated outlets behind the screen wall for the active speakers. Three Seaton catalysts and the Orbit shifter sub. The later was connected with 10 ga wire. It's all about the headroom.

do you think I should go back and do mid-span supports? The 2x10s are only 79.5" long inside a 2x12 "frame".

Well don't keep us hanging. Sounds like you guys made some progress. Where are the pictures???

cue the pictures

Worms eye view of stage and riser lip design, my forehead on the top.



Lip on soffits resisted but eventually surrenederd to our struggle. We broke a numger of boards. Some places it is a single 1/4 inch board, other places we went with two layers of 1/8.





Add Putty, caulk and primer.









Then we painted the ceiling black (two coats). At this point we ran into a brick wall when our first pick of a soffit color (red velvet) didn't impress. 7 samples later we had a winner. Gray

added the rope lights to the soffits and riser. We also turned the whole family loose with some paint, brushes and rollers and the result was interesting.



There is a strip above the rope lights that aren't painted yet so the rope light reflecting off the white primer is misleading in these pics.







The front wall was prepped for Linacoustic and a message for a future owner who might want to dismantle the theater.

The red that didn't make the cut is on the side wall in the last pic.

Excellent Progress. The rope lighting really impresses me. Nice touch. The soffits turned out great, well done. Very classy look to it. Nice "warning" message to future tenants, I would be leery in tearing that down.

Regards,

RTROSE

Outstanding! As usual - thanks for the detailed pictures. How high did you end up making the lip on the soffits? It looks great.

2 inches banged onto the edge of 3/4 MDF so it is 1 1/4 deep looking down, We used 3/8 rope.
