Just make sure you feed him every once in a while and he might just be tempted to stay behind that screen. That is if there is space left after all the speakers are in place. wink.gif

Looks like the screen wall was build just like the rest of the room. Built to withstand just about anything thrown at it. Just out of curiosity why Lowes and not Menards and have you found a supplier for the moldings? The Lowes vs. Menards is a matter of location preference I was just wondering why go further than you have to. I have bought lumber from both places, but tend to go to Lowes as is closer to the house.

Looks like you guys are still making great progress.

Regards,

lol smile.gif Did not research about the molding yet. I guess it can wait and i may take care of it after Big leaves if we cant find it. Sometimes its a matter of food preference so Big or both of us go to the store which is closest to the restaurant where we decide to eat. smile.gif

When I built my house I used a local lumber yard for all my trim. The big box stores want crazy prices. I.E. RB3 was 1/4 the cost. Crown was the same differance. For some reason I ordered way to much crown molding and have 200ft that im going to put to good use soon.

The molding in question is what the original builder used throughout the house as door casing, It is something I've never seen in stock at the big boxes or custom millwork shops. It may have been a special profile design that the builder had made for his projects. I suggested contacting the builder.

As plan B there is a door planned for removal in another part of the basement and if we are careful we could recycle that molding.

In my parents' 100 year old house, we added some doors and obviously couldn't find any of the trim wood to match. Luckily the carpenters had finished the inside of all the closets too. So now several of my parents' closets are missing trim inside them! tongue.gif

you must be related to the painter who painted my first house in Florida. None of the door walls on the inside of closets were painted. Obviously he couldn't fit himself and his spray gun in the closet so I guess he thought I wouldn't notice during the walk through, WRONG.

Yeah, now, in my house, I don't think I could do that. biggrin.gif

Could not help Big much today. Quest Acoustic wall treatments went up on the walls. They are a combination of absorption and diffusion panels. The Ceiling treatments are not yet up. First layer of Linacoustic was put behind screen wall. Door to equipment room got prepped. We had the pleasure of meeting Vanice who is a fellow avs member and owner of Grove theater. It was fun sharing our passion for home theater.

I later came down to take some pics with the wall panels up. Had to dim the lights and blur out the pics a little since due to copyright i am not supposed to post pics of the what specific panel went where. This would have been evident by looking at the panels on close up with lights fully bright and noticing the pattern of each panel is different smile.gif

Vik, thanks for letting me come down and crash your build. It was great to meet you and BIG. You have a fantastic looking room. It's even better in person. Can't wait to see the surprises you still have in store. eek.gif

Love it Vik. I have been following from day 1 and I might have missed your screen size. What size/ratio are you going with? I know it is center stage but I don't recall the other information?
Big beutiful work like always.

I have been mesmerized by these blue-lighting progress photos. Even BEFORE they were blurred out.
Amazing atmosphere you and Big are creating. Then there is the mystique of the Quest panel installation!
And I used to think "Area 51" was fascinating and mysterious. Hmm - have you thought of a name for your theater yet?
post #316 of 983
Thanks Redig Cuzed2 and Blynk. The screen size and model are 140 inch curved fixed frame 2:37:1 SeymourCenterstage XD.

Thank you! That's quite the compliment. (my build is very modest compared to most) Yeah I've been off AVS for about a year and a half...lets see...I stopped posting (and everything else) just about the time....oh yeah...right after my PJ went up...lol. FATAL MISTAKE!

I love the curved elements you've put in your theater, they really pop. I can't wait to see the finished product. (probably not as much as you can't wait though wink.gif ) If Big got commission for every time he was the source of inspiration, technical advise, or otherwise....well I'm sure he could afford to buy every member of AVS a drink or two.

Should be a fun ride watching this build come together...So glad I'm back on AVS cool.gif

Love the lighting, good work!
post #319 of 983
Man considering all the awesome gear choices and how incredible the space is looking this may end up being one of my top five favorite all-around theaters! I can't experess how cool the sofit/lighting and stage is looking! Totally drool inducing.eek.gifeek.gif

Im really excited to see which projector you end up going with. I remeber you saying you may go with the Epson 6020 until you save up for a super hi-end model. Just go with the Sony 4K VPL-1000ES or the Sim 2 Lumis 3D Solo.biggrin.gif

Thanks Matthew and Damelon. You said it Reddig the two exact projectors i could have and if i had the choice between the two i would go for the Lumis! smile.gif

Vik, Big,

Thanks again for letting me intrude and gawk at your theater. Wow it is really coming along and looks fantastic. Photos just don't do it justice. Speaking of which I know you have some progress to show off so hop to it and post some updated photos will ya! Your (and Big's) attention to details is really showing through and your theater will be a top notch space.

How is the fabric frame fabrication coming along?

Hi RT Your welcome anytime.Fabric frames were completed today. Equipment room and theater room door hung and all gaps closed and sealed with acoustic caulk. Theater door only will be removed again from the hinges for beefing. J Just 3-4 more panels remaining to be covered with anchorage. Taking a break tomorrow and starting back on Sunday. Sorry did not take any pics today. I think Big has some and may post smile.gif

That's my cue

Walls will be basic black, columns a grey, we also got 2 layers of Linacoustic on the front wall. Unfortunately my only pictures of that was after the first layer and shows a secret ingredient prescribed my Dennis.

Good luck with the equipment move. If I was there I would help you, although I'm 100% sure I could move it myself...with just my pinky finger.... Well, I'm off to go punch a dragon in the throat....biggrin.gif
