Alrighty. So the basement (minus the home theater) is drywalled. Yea! I still need to put some screw in the "field" of some of the sheets, but only a few of them. I will wait on that until I am in the "got the mudding/taping bid" phase and the "everything is textured" phase.

Anyway, the updated video is uploading right now. YouTube claims that it will be uploaded by just a little after midnight central time tonight (Friday). Of course, then it needs to process it...

Best bet is to look at it on Saturday sometime if you are so inclined.

Damn...impressive work! And I love how the sound changes the instant you walked into your HT room. Can't wait to hear your GG impressions. I heard it takes a week or more to take effect.

Nice job indeed.

The room will become more "live" once the drywall goes up, but the insulation, staggered studs, double drywall, and Green Glue aren't for live/dead room acoustics, but for holding the sound in (or out) of the theater. The video does show the effects of sound absorption as-is though...

LOL. I just realized how much my head congestion comes through when I speak on the video. I couldn't breath normal at all, and it is noticeable. Sorry.

Dude it all looks very nice. I can see why you're willing to pay someone else to mud. All those corners, yikes!

I know. OF course it is all of those corners that make paying someone else so expensive...

So today I was able to spend a little time... IN THE HOME THEATER...

I was putting up layer 1 of the drywall. I am going vertical for the first layer and then horizontal for the second on the walls. All of the ceiling pieces and layers will be perpendicular to the hat channel.

Here are some quick snapshots.

Dust was everywhere (including on my cell phone's camera lens), but you get the idea.

The front wall....



The front left wall....




The rear left wall....

Jason, please take this in the non-mean spirit that is intended:

So, what you're saying, if I got this right, is that it's amazing how walls define the shape of the room? grin

Looking good Nick. The thing that has amazed me with every renovation I have done is how rooms actually seem to get bigger when the drywall goes up. It's totally counter-intuitive for me, but the framed rooms always seem smaller and then get bigger as the walls get that visual definition from the drywall. confused

I agree Dan. The two times we built a house and saw just the first floor layed out, we thought they had the dimensions wrong as it looked so small. Looked bigger after it got framed in and bigger again when the drywall went up.

It is indeed an odd illusion that is the opposite of what you would expect.
