I'm pretty surprised at how much time it is taking me to get this ceiling installed. All day (afternoon) to get this much done:

Took a break from working on only the ceiling this weekend (I'm really depressed on how much work that is turning out to be) to get the HT room painted. I really hate painting. :P

It's called Wheat Bread (BEAR from Home Depot). Of course pictures don't capture how it looks in person... it's a brown with a touch of grey and a very subtle hint of red. We were trying to find a deep color for the room without picking a dark color. I'm pretty happy with it.

I've never hanged a ceiling before but I've watched others do it on a construction site for an office building. It looked tedious. They spent most of the week that I was there doing 1 area. Yours looks like it's going in nice and even, which is great. Guys like me who have to move tiles to run cable sometimes REALLY appreciate that. Love when it comes out -- but more importantly, goes back in -- easily. Less likely to break the tiles, too.

Just wanted to vent some more about how much work putting this ceiling in is...

Also working with 12-2 sucks (plugs). Makes me love 14-2 in comparison!

Well I picked up the special order ceiling tiles for the main HT room tonight... this is what a grand looks like cry

Large Stack of Boxes

Here is the difference between the cheapo tiles I'm using for my office and playroom compared to the special order ones we are going to put up in the HT room:

So progress being made on the HT ceiling but it's slow. I've gotten to the point of not caring anymore. Guess it will be done when I insert that final tile.

Here is some early progress of putting tiles up...

This is what it looks like as of today:



Also got all 3 exhaust fans installed finally. One for the bathroom, this one for my computer room (to simulate a window) and this one for the HT closet.

Hello,
I have no experience in building .
I look at your pics
You are doing it very well.
For a one house floor it look like you thought about the right shapes for everything.
Bedroom ,ht room ,kitchen/bar , tv computer room....

I have a two floor house.
Only thing i could do later should be extand shape from Garden but it's a no no.
raising roof should be good.
Cause it's a room shape all in lenght it's not easy to create new rooms...

Enough talking of my house :p


INANE, Really nice work up there smile
