Well, so far this morning we have had rain, hail, sleet, and snow, so we are not working right now. If the weather forcast is right, we should be able to start again this afternoon, so I thought I would check in and give some updates.

As a matter of fact
Granted the stones on the right bank are not natural and were placed there for erosion control, but still, that is great name and is appropriate. It is going to the top of the list.
Do you have any renders of your theatre? I can't wait to see how this all comes out, especially the theatre and the safe room. I have long pondered a safe room when I build, and even considered a "passage" from master bedroom to safe room.
Keep the pics coming!
An excellent point. I guess I should share more specifics about the theater.
The room is going to have finished dimensions of 12'-2"x16'-3" and I did these renderings in Sketch-Up a few weeks ago.
View from the right side of the room with exterior wall removed
View from back of room with rear wall removed
Here is a detail of screen wall/stage/proscenium
The colors in the renderings are not accurate, but gave me a starting point to discuss the project with my wife. She is actually excited about decorating the room and picking out the fabrics for the wall treatments.
The safe room is something we have not had before. Our last house had a full, in-ground basement, but the new house is on a walk-out lot so my wife was a bit nervous about having someplace to go if there is a tornado. The room is being built underneath the front porch of the home. We decided to put it there so it would not take any usable space out of the rest of the basement.
Thanks for checking in, things should get going pretty fast in the next few weeks.
