Hey guys, I want to thank all of you for all of the nice comments and for following my thread giving me insight, ideas, and help. Most importantly, I would like to thank BIG for making my fantasy become a reality. As some of you know, this theater room was in limbo due to a few obstacles that stood in the way. I had to do some reconstructive surgery to the space before we actually started building the room. After the surgery the space went directly into recovery mode util BIG was able start doing what he does best "Building."
Prior starting, BIG and I had a conversation and we concluded that he and I could tackle the task of building the space. My skills were extremely weak, but BIG had no problem switching modes from builder to teacher. I learned so much about carpentry work that I've decided to never embark on it as an official occupation. Measuring, cutting, sanding, painting, lifting, carrying, reading, waiting, sweating, purchasing, purchasing, purchasing did I mention purchasing? Oh yeah purchasing.... And most of all making mistakes. It took 5 months and I honestly enjoyed just about every minute of the aforementioned, but I don't think I'd ever want to do it again. Special thanks to Landshark, snickers1 and Mike from AVS.
I will end this by saying if you are thinking of using BIG to help with your HT but are uncertain for whatever reason, I can give you a list of reasons why you should.
Knowledgable, fairly priced, very honest, punctual, dedicated to the task, his attention to detail is impeccable, good at improvising and very resourceful.
Not sure about you, but those are all the attributes one should expect/require from a builder. Prior to finding big, I was introduced to someone who tried to over charge me for a sketch that I was supposed to give to someone to build my space. This individual had no patience and he was extremely rude. I am elated that I was able to wait for big to become available.
Thanks for everything guys.... About to watch Oblivion with the wife in my new theater
Last thing, I will be adding my equipment to my profile ASAP
