An update of sorts. My wife has given her aesthetic input and we once again have a new render to second guess.... We are moving away from a printed fabric choice to something that will hopefully stand up to our tastes over time a little better. I think I like it. The vertical tubes between the absorber panels are poly diffusers I've been toying with making at some point. Nowhere near done and already thinking of room tweaks. crazy

I still have to find sconces that I like. But something like this would work well I think. I like that they would stand off the fabric panels so heat from the bulbs would not present a safety issue. Probably go LED bulbs at some point anyway. A bonus is they are under 25$ each and are rated for 100W.

Sconces idea



Before


After WAF

What does it look like with the wall treatments from the "before" in the "after WAF" design?

Starting to get back in financial shape after Christmas and other renovation expenses. Building a theater is expensive! Tempted to order the drywall and insulation for delivery. Stupid being responsible with money. ::rolls eyes:: I want to do this right, once, so sorry if the progress isn't as fast and furious as it was for a bit there. But about to get back on track soon.

I treat this thread as something to hold me accountable for doing things right and timely. I know you guys will bust me down if I come up short anywhere. Thats a good thing. Already starting to field the "when will the theater be done?" questions from the extended family. Oh joy!

Geez Fred. Way to rub it in. laugh

Material and installer lined up. Should be insulated and boarded within a week or so. Fingers crossed the weather holds out for deliveries.....

Today was a productive day... and I wasnt even here. My building pal is on days off and took the liberty of coordinating my deliveries and, what the hell, insulating the entire basement as per my constant yammering on. laugh Here I am having walked in the door to find he is done and pretending to work for the camera. Tomorrow is vapour barrier and resilient channel. He is as anxious to see it done as I am. Apparently the pending space is becoming hot gossip in the family. Lol.

It took the drywall delivery guys 2 hours to lug the 65 sheets of 5/8" drywall down the narrow basement stairs. Best $110 I've ever spent.

Basement is insulated.

Agreed. Let the pros deliver it. I got enough drywall that the delivery was included. They would put the sheets in whatever locations and quantities around my basement that I wanted.

108 sheets of 12 foot long (the BIG stuff) drywall. The cost from a drywall only place was significantly less than a big box store, and the drywall is more fresh (yes, look it up if you are wondering), it usually is a better quality, and delivery into the house was included.

This first video isn't very exciting. They told me that if the one tree wasn't there, they could have gotten a LOT closer to my back door in the basement.


Even with the extra walking distance, they were way faster than anything I could have done.
