Some updated pictures for you...
The screen wall...


The back wall...


The rear side opposite the door...



The mudders are at the house now working on getting mud on all of the outside corners. Hopefully it will dry by tomorrow night and then they finish the inside corners in the theater and start the finish coats Friday/Saturday and are ready to texture on Monday or Tuesday.

Very nice. I can't wait to see the completed pics. Thanks for taking the time to share the progress along the way.

Cheers,

Inside corners , they can only do one side at a time. I do not like mudders for the mess they make on the floor and they don't clean it up?

I have been pleasantly surprised at how much of a mess they have NOT made. Plus, part of the contract is that they clean up when they are done.

I also forgot to mention that I ordered my seats today. The company had a sale that saved me $250 more than the cheapest price I had seen in the past. I had to jump on it. They should be here in just over a week. I hope to find some place to put them when they get here. There will be 16 boxes for the 8 chairs.

Nothing new to show. The stupid mudders haven't been back since Thursday night. They loaded up the corner bead, but weren't sure how long it would to take dry. I put some small heaters (don't want to bake it, but want to get rid of air moisture) and a few fans down there.

The main guy was supposed to be over Friday night to check on it, and to do the last inside corners (at least the first layer) in the home theater. Then Saturday was supposed to be the finishing coat day with a couple of drying days for a Tuesday night texturing job.

Well, a few phone calls and text messages and I haven't heard ANYTHING from this guy. At first I was polite and just asked for the "schedule". My last message wasn't so polite. We were planning on painting this coming Saturday, but I have a feeling that they will still be working down there. We also need to order carpet since there is a great deal going on and of course installation is 2-3 weeks out from today. We really need paint on the walls to get a good feel for the carpet colors.

Good thing that I haven't paid the mudders anything yet.

Tomorrow I am going to talk to the guy at work who knows and recommended this guy. Maybe he can get some action out of him.

My carpenter was supposed to be here 3 weeks ago (as of today) to put in the last couple of hours to finish his work in the kitchen, and I haven't heard from him.

Some contractors suck when it comes to scheduling.

It's been looking good though, Nick!

I can only blame myself for not showing up to work on the basement.

LOL. So I randomly got a text from the guy yesterday morning. He said that he was out of town still due to a "sudden and tragic death" in his family. I heard that he had some close relatives living in one of the areas that we devastated by tornadoes last week, and the timing lines up, so I wonder if that is what happened. I don't have a lot of details yet. He was planning on being back at our house working tonight and doing texture tomorrow. I am going to guess that he won't be texturing until Saturday though.
