The CopperFields Cinema - Page 3

post #61 of 1213

They both look pretty good I'm leaning towards the molten copper though (although both would look great I'm sure)

Good luck

I like all 3 we will see what we can come up with as an accent color and match them up. I have more Gom samples coming.

I like the grey. Looks great and gives you lots of wall fabric options.

I prefer the grey pattern too.

I'm planning to do the same exact SMX screen size, so I'll be anxiously watching your progress! What's your front row seating distance?

Great work!

Front row seating is going to be between 13' & 14' we will see once I get the stage built and the screen wall. Should I post ya a few pics of the SMX screen in the box Dkaps came over the other day and we opened it up and had a look. I must say I cant wait to get it up and get this thing rolling I wanna watch some movies

I used good old liquid nails. I let it cure for almost 7 days before I removed the clamps and still had one little spot pull away I dont think I used enough LN on that spot. I screwed it along the top and used the LN along the bottom edge of the beam and clamped it tight.

Hello All

I have been trying to finish up the soffets this week and I am pretty close just a few more small sheets of sheetrock and GG and DONE

Here are a few pics of my flex duct before I sealed them up

Also I decided to go with sconces so that I didnt have to cut into the mass of my soffets

Here are the almost completed Soffets.

Future Bass trap and can lighting that will go behind the SMX and shine down on my speakers

Here is a shot of my staggered stud wall where my door jam is. I think I am going to have it custom made since my jam is 8 1/2" wide

This is also a pretty good shot showing how I over lapped my sheetrock alternating the 48" & 54" sheetrock. Stretch rock is a Beautiful thing

going to order my Linacoustic this week and start getting some furring strips up. I'm also going to be using the fabricmate track system

I'm about to build my stage. It would be cool if I could get some input on design. Please post links to your builds. I have a few pics saved of a few fellow AVS builders that I really liked but can always use more ideas

I know sandman's stage is a frequently copied one.

Any turns in those HVAC runs?

The cold air return I did a 14' run of JM 1" duct board in the floor joist and boxed it in and then hooked in my return with the flex duct. I can yell into it and you can not hear me in the room above. The supply line I have not hooked up yet and just have it hanging in the furnace room. I will mess with it when I get the room done.

Sandmans stage is nice but I think I am going to copy Ronnie jacksons stage. I really like the way that turned out. He did a awsome job
post #77 of 1213
Ronnies is great too. Good choice. No point in copying mine, it is just an equipment location behind a future false wall:

Hello All

Well in between the rain and mowing my lawns I made some time to start working on the stage. I tryed to copy Ronnie jackson's stage build. I had to make mine a bit smaller Thanks to Ronnie for some pretty detailed photo's I think I came pretty close.

Here I used a bunch of scraps and did a mock up

Once I was pleased with the way every thing fit I started putting the puzzle together

I think I got alot done for the few hours I have into it. I hope to have it finished by the weekend. I'm not looking forward to dragging bags of sand into the basement

I finished up the framing today. Now sand not looking forward to that at all

post #84 of 1213
Oh man. Are those 2x12's? That is going to take a ton (literally) of sand! One word: Ibuprofen
post #85 of 1213
Thread Starter 
2x10's but ya I think its gunna take a ton I have a plan though. I bought a drywall cart to haul my sheetrock around when I started working on finishing the basement my plan is to wheel barrel it to the basement window then slide it down a ramp. Then load it on the drywall cart and roll it into the HT. Sounds simple but we will see

Not much has happened in the last week I run my own lawn biz and it has been raining like crazy and I am having a tuff time mowing 46 lawns in 3 days by myself. I hate wet grass and refuse to mow it wet but I guess green grass is better then burnt stubble but its cutting into my build time.

I am going to pick up sand and materials for the riser this weekend and get that going. Pics to follow soon

[quote=W00lly;10999709]Well I got out the blue tape tonight and did a mock up of the actual size of my screen [snip]
I think I'm gunna have to lower this thing an inch or two. QUOTE]

Be careful with those directors and using any "rules" for where eye level should be on the screen -- You'll almost always be reclining, and that changes things a bit. You don't want to spend the whole movie with your chin on your chest. I think I'm at 1/6 screen and that's comfortable for me. I would not want the screen any lower, though.

I finally got the chance to look through your thread and I must say you are looking good. Everything looks top notch so far and I am subscribing to your thread so I do not miss anything. You are ahead of me so I love watching what others do so I do not forget anything. Good job.
