Here is a photo of the bathroom when we first moved in 11/1/2004. Everything was brand new. It didnt take long for the shower to turn to crap with those cheap doors

Is that a flat screen tv in there? Ritzy!

I am in the same boat so don't feel too bad. Mrs. Danforth and I have completely destroyed our living room this weekend (and last week) redoing the ceilings, walls, trim, and a new stack of crown molding. :-p

All I've gotten done in the theatre this week is patching two drywall holes!

I went out this morning and got a replacement for my broken camera

Here are a few photo's of where I'm at

The toilet will be relocated to where my shop vac is sitting and the room that it is being moved from will become one large shower bigger then my new basement shower this project has to be done first before I can finish up the basement build as I'm having plumbing moved around so thats whats holding up finishing the drywall in the basement.








post #1118 of 1213

post #1119 of 1213

Well its been a pretty busy week got everything tore out almost all the framing done on the shower. Plumber was here today and just about finish but ran out of time they will be back on Monday.

I had a pretty easy time at getting the tile and backerboard up. I ran my skill saw down the grout line with a concrete blade. I used my shop vac to suck the dust as I cut worked pretty slick.

This weekend I'm going to install all my electrical can lights and new bath fan possibly the new double hung window. Tile came in yesterday. Once the plumbers are finished my floor guy can get in to pour the shower pan. I decided to hire out some of this to get it done quickly.

Some progress made. The shower just about ready for tile and the drywall is ready for mud. I also replaced the fake glass block window with a double hung. Will post up some pictures of the basement tomorrow.

Looking good Scott. Nice work. That shower looks like a nice space.

Its going to be pretty sweet when its all finished. I put in HDMI for a 27" or 32" tv on the outside of the shower wall. I should have run inwall speakers in there

Well its been a little over 4 weeks since my last update and I have finished the main part of the master bath. my pictures make the tile look allot more orange then they really are there more of a rust color. I'm now starting on the shower tile I will post some pics as I go. I really can't wait to finish it and get back down in the basement.

Nice! We did 3 heads in ours and to this day have no idea why we didn't do a rain head! We never use then together though. Once in a while I'll use 2. My basement steam shower is getting I pt a railhead and handheld this time.

Very cool though. Good much finishing up!

U in yard mode yet due to the early warm weather?

I'm about to roll out this week and start doing clean ups and some aerating. Just in time to as I'm tapped out of cash

So far we have about 11k into this bath and probably another $1600 when all is said and done. I also went with a all in one quartz urethane grout as its pre mixed and real easy to use. Its allot more expensive then the grout you have to mix but the time saved is worth the extra cost. no sealing required.

Here is the link if anyone has never heard of this type of grout.

Tsk tsk... I can't believe you added it all up! I'm too nervous to calculate how much my room has cost. The most committal I'll get about my theatre is "Idunno, a hundred here, a couple hundred there..."

But it was worth it. That room is nice!

I have a box full of receipts that I have not tallied for over 2 years I will have to add them all up in the end to get a close cost of everything I have done up to this point. I know my wife is going to freak as I have been paying cash for everything as we go

I have not spent all my time in the bathroom I got quite a bit done in the basement also. Before drywall I ran HDMI cables to all TV locations in the basement. I wanted to be able to split off my component rack and watch movies or TV on all TVs in the basement at the same time. Fall Football is going to ROCK


Hallway leading to the Theater. I installed 4" can lights close along the wall for movie posters.



In this corner we are going to have a restaurant booth note the electrical box's mid way up the wall a small TV will mount above the table.



Next to the Booth kitchen cabinets with a sink and dishwasher will be installed up to the fridge and a few upper cabinets right of the window.





in the far corner a 60" 3D TV will live.



On this wall a 55" TV will be mounted for a Arcade game pedestal

Hey that is some awesome progress! Love the tile in the bath, the whole shebang is just that next level better than what you started with. Well done!

The theater space is looking good too. Like the down wash from the new cans and really like the layout of your space. Really like the wall color as well. Very nice.

Regards,

RTROSE

Thanks RTROSE

I pretty much have Tile Trim and Carpet left to do then install the cabinets. I need to start saving some coin for all the TVS I need to buy. I really want to get that new Samsung 8000 model 3D Tv they have really improved the glass's

Hey buddy, I was doing some lurking around the forums and noticed it has been like FOREVER since you have posted to or updated your thread. I was just trying to provide a nice friendly bump. So any progress?

Alright a bit of a update. I have just about finished my journey that has taken way to long rolleyes.gif here are a few pics and a shakey short video. Enjoy














I bought these Subs from DesertDome right before our theater meet and greet in October and have to say I'm pretty happy with them. They are DIY Dual Opposed with MFW-15 drivers for a total of eight 15" drivers

Great job, Scott. You're going to have quite the party spot down there with the dinette area, multiple tvs and the theater.

I really like your wire management system. I think I might go with the same wall plate you used on the ceiling. I have two conduit runs up there right now and wasn't quite sure how to dress up the termination. I think the brush-style slots will work just great. Can you post a link to the black bars that cradle your wires? I think you mentioned you got them on EBay.
