I then painted the CORNICE in white & the final results are TOPS......FAIR-DINKUM they're the ANTS-PANTS.

Next on the list this week is to paint the double-door grey & the little room which leads to the garage, grey as well. Also, paint the curtain-header on the inside black.

Tiles & mirrors in the bar are on order. So is the full block-out window blind for the side window & a 4 1/2 metre curtain on the back wall to hide the 3 stacker sliding door. Wait till you see this curtain...It's awesome. It's not like your typical curtain. It's state of the art & it has burnt a hole in my pocket at the same time....but once viewed, I'd just had to have it. Both these items are black & 3 to 4 weeks away.

Very nice work. Being a pro painter I admire your caulking skills. Most skimp on that part ' but a good caulk job makes a big difference. Good job.

Hello Steve!!

Very nice work you have done here! Maybe someday when my wife and I visit, we can see it in person! (She's an Aussie!)

May I ask what kind of paint are you spraying? Tip size? I have a few gravity fed HVLP's but if you are spraying latex the tip really needs to be large. I am not an expert by any means so I am just asking. Finishes can be extremely challenging and you have done a wonderful job!

Have an ale on me if you are ever state side!

I'm also sorry to read about Buzz R.I P.

Cheers,
Shane

Thx Gibbo. Your exactly right. To many Painters THESE DAYS, take short-cuts & would rather fill these gaps by "Loading" them up with excess paint. The thing is (as you would know) to the "Untrained-eye" the finished paint job looks absolutely marvellous....but give it a year or 2 once the paint fully dries, those gaps will crack, exposing the true workmanship of that painter. By using a good quality gap sealer, along with pride will guarantee & job that will last until the next new paint trend arrives....That's if you don't have kids lol.

Cheers PK. You're doing a terrific job too m8.
9 months into my build & the light is starting the glow at the end of the tunnel but still, a couple of months before I can think about relaxing....unfortunately.

You never know bro....You'll have to give it a good year though as once I've finished this project I've got an outdoor undercover area that backs onto this room which is next on the hit-list (you can sometimes see the start of it thru the back glass doors)....No point coming over for a "BO-PEEP" if we can't throw a swimp on the BBQ.

Thx Shane...he was a great Fur-Baby. I miss his personality & little licks.

Regarding paint, I used "Water-Based" as the over-spray dries instantly once it hits the air.

I just watered the paint down around about 4 parts paint, 1 part water. I didn't measure it due to my background experience. I just simply gave it a good stir & watched the consistency of the paint falling off the paint stick until it looked right in my eyes.

The "TIP size" (I'll have to wait until I get home) off memory I think it's 1.2....I'll get back to you as it could be 1.5

Quick tip if you haven't used a spray-gun before -
1. Always stir your paint thoroughly.
2. Always "Strain" your paint. Go to your local automotive shop & buy a box of 100 paper strainers. Yeah sure....you won't use more than a dozen at a time but they come in handy for other jobs & they're cheaper in bulk than buying multiple packs of 6.
3. Clean your paint-cap in-between coats. It takes 5 seconds using an old toothbrush in a bucket of water.
4. Make sure the "Breather-Hole" situated at the top of your pot remains unblocked at all time. Use a thin piece of wire &/or toothbrush too clean.
5. Don't have your air-pressure turned up too high (Controller usually found on base on gun). You want the paint to go on softly, not thrown on.
6. Make sure you adjust your PAINT-NEEDLE (usually the 2nd controller on the gun). You don't want the paint going on dry as it will end up looking like 180 grit sand-paper. You don't want the paint going on to wet as the paint will run like the local water fountain. As a guide I usually whined the needle out 3 full-turns & adjust in or out as I go.
7. Make sure your "FAN" (usually the top controller) is set right. This is most important. For beginners try practising with a pot full of water first. Adjust the fan all the way in & you will notice it will spray like a garden-hose if your look for distance. Start adjusting the fan OUT & you will notice it will spray like a garden-hose with a mist. So what I do to get the fan right is adjust the fan right-out & then adjust it back-in until you see the fan start closing slightly. You'll notice at this time the fan will have an even spray throughout. As I said before, beginners use a pot full of water first so you don't waste product.
8. Keep a steady arm. As a general rule if you're Right-Handed like me....Hold the gun in your right hand & the spray-hose in your left. This will provide a steady arm throughout.
9. Make sure you've got plenty of refreshments in the fridge.

Ok so I got everything done this weekend as stated.

Painted the double-doors.
Painted the little room that will store all my audio equipment.
And painted the inside of the headers black.

I also installed more RGB-LEDS around the room....but I'll leave those pictures for another day as I'm stuffed & need a coldie.

Got the flooring down during the week.

No, I didn't go for the usual carpet. As the room is going to be a "Movie / Sporting / Concert " room, I opted for something that's more user-friend regarding "Traffic". It's a very durable laminated wood finished floor boarding that's about 8mm thick. I left a similar GAP around all the edging of the room, where the boarding simply slips under that gap creating more clean lines.

I will be laying large rugs during quite times.

Painted on the "Tile Primer" so to get the maximum grip once I start laying the tiles.

Cut my first ever tile today after forking out good cash on a decent tile cutter. Piece of p1$$.

Layed a couple of tiles before calling it a day.

All I can say is "WOW". Your carpentry skills are off the charts. That you can both design and build such a great looking space is just remarkable. I know you must be very pleased with this space.


Congrats. Job well done. Looking forward to the photos when it is complete.

It’s just getting silly how good a) your skills are and b) how good you are at documenting them.
Mad jealous. Keep it up..

Thx PK, Audioguy & MHD. I haven't been ignoring you lot. I've just had a couple of "ARM-CHAIR-WEEK-ENDS" where I temporarily USED the 90% finished Movie-Room.

2 weeks ago we had our SUPERBOWL Grand Final (Rugby League) where my Mighty Mighty Green-Machine, the Canberra RAIDERS got the ruff end off the stick in the final stages & got pipped on the post. Arrrh well....There's always next year....BUGGER.

And last week Australia staged the BEST CAR RACE in the world, BATHURST 1000 where once again my beloved HOLDEN got pipped as well, by a Ford Mustang.

Back on the tools this weekend where I'll be doing my "Front Speaker Surrounds". Pictures to come, but first I'll post some pictures from last weekend when the room was CLEAN & my mates were over.

Cheer's Steve.

I'll post "Double Pictures" of each scene .....but with different colours to show you that when it comes to colour settings, the skys the limit with these RGBs.

If your an AUSSIE, you'll know what the last picture means, COCKROACH CRESCENT lol.

Also, I've purposely not shown you any pictures of the 130-inch projector screen because I need to finish off ALL surrounding areas first. Sorry to keep you in suspense ;-)

I forgot to put up pictures of the BLACK TILES.

It's pretty hard to show these tiles off without being here but here's some pic's that show reflections of the RGBs.

They're 600mm x 600mm squared tiles so I only needed 12 of them....TOPS.

These 2 pictures are of the FULL-BLOCK-OUT blind, that was installed 2 weeks ago.

One shown opened & one shown closed.

They obviously work 100%. Brilliant.

And these pictures are of the curtain on the Rear-Triple-Stacker-Window, on the rear-wall.

These curtains work similarly to the old out of date "Vertical-Blinds", that rotate left & right to let the light in... but don't have the old "Joiner-Cords" on the bottom to keep them parallel or in-sink.

These curtains actually look like they're One-Big-Curtain.....but don't be fooled as you can walk through them anywhere you like without pulling the curtain out of the way.

When rotated "Left" they close blocking out 85% of all light....but when Rotated "Right" they open up letting in the light and revealing a nice lacy pattern which is totally separated from the next sleave.

These curtains will perfectly complement this room as behind those moving glass doors will be an outdoor BBQ area which will be undercover and in-line with 130-inch projector screen.

Give me 2 more years & this spot will be the ANTS PANTS.

These pictures are of the FRONT speaker covers that will go below the 130-inch screen.

They're only "Cut-Outs" ATM from MDF panelling...which I'll paint in the coming weeks.

There's 3 speaker covers in total, shown. Left, right & centre.

They're all made up from 3-pieces.

The 1st piece is the base.

The 2nd will be hidden in the centre and be covered in "Black-Speaker-Material".

The 3rd piece is the front-face and that will lock all 3 pieces neatly together.

Once completed & mounted will show clean-lines.

If you haven't noticed I love "Attention-to-Detail".

All pieces have been routed inside & out, where needed.

PS....The little puppy is "Grace". She's our new baby girl after beloved "BUZZ" past earlier in the year.

These pictures are of the SIDE speaker covers. Obviously there's 2 covers.

Basically it's the same as explained in the above post.

Once they've finished I still need to finish off the Stubbies (sorry SUBBIES) surrounds covers, the RV-Rack & a few odd jobs.....But I'm getting there slowly but surely.

Cheers lizrussspike.

On a sad note, I've injured my right-bicep picking up a large sheet of MDF today while in the process of building my AV AMP storage unit.

I got as far as cutting out the "Front & Rear" faces of the AV-Rack, before going down to the local hardware shop where I tore that muscle internally...so it's gonna need some time off to help repair.

Looks like the HT room is going to get a workout for a couple of weeks lol.

I must admit......this is NOT the first time I've read about this scenario happening (injury) during a HT-build, and it most probably won't be the last lol.

The 1st pic below is simply 2 blank MDF boards which I've cut to size.

The 2nd pic is with holes cut-out where the AV, Blueray & CD players, multiples Amps and even an old twin-tape-deck for old time sake will be displayed. I've also got to place FANS as well to extract the heat.

Both pieces look identical as after cutting one out I simply clamped them together and routered the other one out. Their not 100% though as I had to leave room for a power-point which I presume you can all notice.

Oh well....I've got a bit of time now to think about it.

It goes from bad to worse.

The bicep is as good as gold (light duties) but the YAMAHA RX-A3010 died on the weekend.

I've gone back to my "Main-man" who I buy all my AV's, Amps, Speakers from & although I haven't committed yet, he's offered me a really good deal on a new YAMAHA RX-A3080.

25% off what his website is asking for it....so I'm pretty keen.

Thoughts on any another AV's before I commit or reasons why I should or shouldn't buy.

My set-up consists of 3 Yamaha amps that I've "Pre-amp" to the system and a stack of PSB Synchrony Speakers (1 tower & 3 bookshelves & 1 centre). 1 PSB 500 Subwoofer & 2 sets of Nile ceiling speakers.

All speakers are not installed yet (ceiling & side Spk still in box) as HT-room is in the final stages...& believe it or not I was considering updating my AV with ATMOS & then this happens which makes things easier lol.

Thoughts are welcome by all, including what I should bi-amp (front towers & ??) and whether I should use 5.1.4 - 7.1.4.

Regards, Steve.

Ok regarding the AV-RACK.

I've routered out some SLEEVES to slide the shelves in on the
wall panels.

There's 7 shelves (so far).

The shelves I've routered out some holes to help with cooling.

There's a picture with the FRONT-FACE painted black.

There's a picture with some AV & AMPs in position.
