I never seen an I-beam like this before. It seems to me that the 2x12 in my older construction would be much sturdier.

That is just a picture representation. The I beams in our house are pretty beefy. Engineered I beams are supposed to be better as long as they are the right ones.

Engineered beams are supposed to be more dimensionally stable. Which means fewer squeaks from the subfloor resting on it over time, among other benefits.

I built my bulkheads that way, 2x4's notched out to fit onto the joists etc.

Harmony One remote... Worked great for V3.0 of the theater.

By the way, I just got done spending the afternoon/evening on Friday, a good part of Saturday, and then about 6 hours today finishing things up and getting the whole basement cleaned up in hopes of a successful inspection tomorrow. I REALLY hope that we get the stamp of approval and then we can start the drywall process. Things will really start to take shape then....
