LOL, Tom!

Poor Nick. He has a pre-teen daughter, with a chameleon, and a teen daughter who, by definition, is a chameleon.

In order to raise teens properly, one MUST have completed at least some course work in zoology. Some cryptozoology wouldn't hurt, either. When I taught teens, I found the threat of waterboarding to be quite effective.

Nick, the drywall will not hold out long enough for this application, therefore I suggest Durock or cement backer board.

Nick, before you starting tearing all the Sheetrock out of your basement, I think Bob is referring to waterboarding.

Doh. Makes sense now. I was reading the post on my phone while in an all-day meeting at work. My brain missed the waterboarding line altogether.

Last night was nice and productive. A coworker came over for about 90 minutes with his 11 year old son. We cranked out the equivalent of 7 full sheets of drywall. That is more than any other time that I worked down there, even on days where I spent 8-10 hours down there. Granted, we focused on the easier stuff from the vantage point of what sheets could be hung with the fewest cuts, but wow does it look like some nice progress.

I really only have 1 slightly tricky ceiling piece, which really just comes down to having to reroute my cable internet wiring from the main floor dining room (which has been subbing in as an office) into the office area in the basement. That should take about 20 minutes to reroute the cabling, and then that piece can go up and I can cut out the last 2 can lights. Then I can get working on the last 7 sheets of the heavy 5/8 drywall for the exterior walls.

We mainly hung interior (1/2") sheets last night, and they are so much lighter than the heavy stuff, so I am looking forward to more of that.

Of course, I still have half of my 5/8" drywall stacked up in the home theater room. I am still committed to getting the drywall done in the rest of the basement before doing the theater. I want to really be proficient at my hanging and cutting skills to get things as perfect as possible in the theater room, plus I can focus all of my mess in 1 room at that point.

I'm thinking a teenaged daughter with a boyfriend in a sound proof home theater is probably not a good combination. I strongly urge to to install an internet webcam in that room. You also might want to make sure the boyfriend sees you cleaning any pistols or sharpening any hunting knives that you own while discussing the rules of the theater room with him. Visual presentations are truely the most effective way to make a point.

I thought webcams were the reason teenagers chewed gum. (Just apply gum to front of webcam.)

If my "nannycam" suddenly stopped providing me an image then its time for a real set of eyes to take over.

Funny, but true, story. In V3.0 of my theater, we had both of our kids convinced that we had cameras in the home theater even though we never did and never had anything that even looked like a camera in there.

I am going to use my IR repeater "eye" which will be on the front false wall pointing towards the seats as my "yes, this is a camera" deal. They have no idea what it will be and will believe it.

Nick they are getting older and therefore not as easy to fool, especially if the hormones start raging. LOL take it from a man that has raised a daughter and has had boyfriends hanging around the house. Then stop and remember what occupied your thoughts as a teenage boy.
