No tapers/mudders yet, I would guess they would be out there today. It's so nice to see work getting done and me not having to do every little bit of it. Like I told my wife, we're basically buying our time back.
Everything looks great, and now we're picking out tile for the bar/bath. Cherry McKinely cabinets have been ordered from Lowe's, and should be there in 4-5 weeks. We got the Chocolate Glaze cabinets, and they happened to be running a deal where glazing was free, as was the sink base. It's always nice to save a thousand dollars.
My HVAC guy still has a bunch of crap lying around the basement, which isn't a huge deal, but it would be good to get it out of the basement and get my registers from him. He positioned the HVAC return/supplies so that I can drop them out through the soffit in the theater, and he put a few bends in the ductwork to minimize any sound transference.
I also bought some foam weatherproofing strips to put on the ceiling joists to help dampen impact noise. I'm hoping that will help a little bit. Not as good as doing RSIC clips, but I get to keep one inch of ceiling height and $500 in my pocket.
Entry into basement
Stairs, with a playroom underneath for the little one.
You can see the opening for the wine rack (right hand side) and the door for underneath the stairs. I had to get a 78" door for this due to the low soffit heighth.
Here is all the 5/8th's rock waiting to be deployed.
The screen wall of the theater is still open because that's the cedar closet and I'm going to put plywood up instead of sheetrock.
Bathroom/shower with Durarock.
Egress window, which is still wide open for all of the workers.
