12/20/18 “Let there be... almost light!” Update.
- can lights
- surface mount outlets
- projector box work
Today was eventful and productive for the Ashton Cove Theater. The electrician & I knocked out all of the can light housing installs; the electrician had never used this particular model before, and stated that he would be adding this to “go-to” list for indoor swivel can lights.
I picked up matte black paint from Lowe’s and applied 3 even layers to the face of the cans for a nice smooth finish. I am really happy with how they turned out.
Inside of each column, the electrician installed two surface mount outlets - one for the sconces and one at the bottom for “as-needed” and LED floor lighting for a few of them.
I installed the power inlet in the AV closet which will feed juice to the PJ, and cut out the outlet hole in the side of the PJ box. My electrician laughs at me and calls that power inlet a fancy extension cord, which I guess it is
I cut an access hole in the side of the PJ box which will be my “service hole” where I can access the cavity of the soffit. Inside of the soffit, I’ve got two Romex runs that I will tie into surface mount outlets with - one for a Phillips hue bridge and one for the Phillips hue strip light transformers for the crown molding. The access hole will simply be covered with some acoustic foam of some sort where it’s not visible to the eye.
Before tomorrow afternoon, I’m supposed to build a prototype panel for the columns so that the electrician can take a practice swing at hanging the sconces. I will make sure to share the results of that effort.
Also tomorrow, if I have time, I am going to pick up 5/4” poplar to begin constructing acoustic panels. I bought a Bosch router table with some nice bits today, so I should be prepared for an extensive amount of round over cutting.
I also might paint the A/C vents tomorrow if I have the time; however, I am unsure if I can use the same spray paint I have, or if I need to use paint that can handle a higher heat level...
Oh oh, and my HVAC guy has a 100’ x 4’ roll of HVAC duct insulation that he’s going to give to me at cost - score.
I probably need to begin designing the screen wall so I can have a cookie cutter approach to implementing.
