Carpet is relatively cheap for what it actually is. It is does have a slight speckle of grey, hence the Pepper name, but it is actually pretty much solid black and with very little sheen or reflection. I would recommend getting a quality padding as I did and the end result is like walking on a cloud. We are planning on doing the rest of our house on that padding since it is so soft. It was on sale when we got it but it is a major upgraded pad.
Thanks for replying big guy. Really appreciated. Love your theater. Love , love, love!!

I finished the drywall mudding today!!! It felt really good to put away the drywall tools. I hope to sand later this week and hopefully texture next Saturday and then start building the riser. Carpet store was closed today so maybe we will go tomorrow.

As a public service announcement...make sure you cover the floor before you start mudding!!! I was lazy (or just excited to get going) and didn’t do it. I regretted it today when I was down on all fours scraping the dried mud off the floor. Here’s the current status from all four corners.










And the audio nook/closet.

I am over budget! So budget carpet here we come. Here is what we came up with. It’s got a slight pattern and is deep grey almost black. Black paint for the soffits and baseboards and grey for the walls.

General comment -- I have had good results going with cheaper carpeting but maintain the dollars in the padding underneath.

I like the color scheme. Those colors really compliment each other.

Just ask your wife since you saved money by doing your own drywall, mudding and taping - if you can get the carpeting you really want. The cost difference will not be that much.

At any rate what your picture shows for samples looks fine, 2nd the prior comment of using good pad.

Are you installing carpeting yourself, Clay?

I am WAY over budget, so probably no negotiation room right now . She commented again this morning that she likes it so I am going to run with it and keep my mouth shut. I am not going to do the carpet myself. Lowes will install it. They are backed up right now and said yesterday that it will be about a month to get it done. Not happy about that but it is what it is I guess. I am going to call around today to see if any others have any better lead time. I hope to spend some time sanding later today.

Great job so far. I had a hard time picking a carpet, but I'm SOOO glad that I went with something with a pattern. It really sets the room apart.

Provides nice contrast and depth in the room. Very nice color scheme overall. Nice tray ceiling. Thanks for sharing.

I sanded the room over three evenings this past week. I hate sanding so I just did a little at a time. Cleaned it all up this morning and then did the knock down texture. Then started building the riser. Tomorrow I will finish the riser while my wife primes the room. Then paint this week and I can start installing lights and electrical! I need to also schedule carpet which could be 4 weeks out I may not make Memorial Day weekend...











Tool of the day goes to the acrylic knock down knife. I had never used one (have been using a metal one for all the other jobs I have done in the house) and this thing ROCKS and made it INCREDIBLY easy and it looks professional. If you are doing knock down do yourself a favor and get one of these.

Looking good. Are you going to fill the riser with Roxul? You might be able to buy the carpet from Home Depot and get a carper contractor in your area to do the install sooner than 4 weeks.

Filling with pink fluffy. Also running bass conduit and topping with 2 sheets of 3/4 OSB. Hope to finish it tomorrow!

Nice job on the ceiling!

RE carpet installer I found one on CL that did mine HD wanted like $2300 to do the riser and stage and wouldn't install the HTmarket carpet on the floor, it was $500 and he did a great job. Full disclosure I did call 5 references he provided and he performed as they advised he would.

Man it feels good to be done with drywall!!! Got the room primed today and finished the riser. It was very easy compared to drywall work I hope to get it painted this week so can start installing electrical and speakers.

Did you guys get one wall painted gray as well it looks like? I like that color if that is the actual paint color. I actually love it!!! Did you spray the primer and roll the paint? You guys work fast!!

Oh man you have no idea how bad I want to just set it up and go! I need to work on my list to see everything that is left. I think it will be a lot longer than I think.

Paint your baseboards while not on the wall and dry fit them but don't put them on until after the carpet. The carpet installers will bang up the paint on the bottom of the wall but the baseboard will cover it.

You're really making great progress. Keep up the great work!

It is not screwed to the back wall. But the back wall is not too straight or my cutting of the OSB is not too straight so the OSB is touching in a couple of places. The framing is not touching the wall. The thing must weight 300-400 pounds so I don’t think it will move.

Hard day today but lots of progress.

Made a window plug.

Screwed drywall to the windows.


Then filled the one side with pink fluffy and covered with OSB then 1 piece of drywall then green glue then another piece of drywall.





Then built a frame to insert.



Then filled and covered it.







Then started building the “door”.










Then attached.





It was really heavy!

Wife finished painting and I installed a few lights. More tomorrow!

That window setup is sweet. Still able to use as an easement if need be. But outside sound is significantly decreased. Your wife did a great job with the painting. I love that color.
