Not that it wouldn't suck, but if I mucked up that bad I'd have to suck it up and fix it. You guys would just never hear about it! laugh Doing this myself is saving me a pile of money, and making sure its done right. But all of this is kind of a leap of faith until the room is actually properly sealed and I can measure the noise floor. Virtually flying blind until completion.

I am aiming for an environment of 19db ambient and a total STC average of 55 or so. The biggest weakness is the panel location and the french doors. If I succeed, the projector in eco mode should sound like a jet engine compared to the regular noisefloor of 25-30db in most homes.

I've been urged to skip all this foreplay and just build a hollodeck already! grin

soooo...could you not have done the first layer perpendicular, and the outer layer vertical?

That would cut down on the seam work, for the walls anyway smile

Very nice. Starting to look a bit like the Diefenbunker, but still very nice.

EDIT -- so I went to the web site to check the spelling of Diefenbunker and found this :

Quote:
CANADIAN WINTER WEATHER NOTICE

Although the Diefenbunker was built to withstand a nuclear blast at the height of the Cold War, sudden winter storms and poor road conditions do occasionally force us to close our blast doors. Over the winter months, we encourage visitors to check our website or call the Museum in advance of any visit to confirm our hours. Thank you!

Just the ceiling got 2 layers. I cheaped out on the walls as 3 back onto foundation and the other is a double studded wall. But yes, you are right. smile To be honest just getting the space drywalled feels like a milestone. A chalky, dusty, milestone. grin

Tapers were here today for day 1 of 4. Wildly varying prices between the 2 quotes I got. 1200+material vs 600+material. To put things into perspective material was 400$. Its not a very big basement. The HT room is half of it. To board, channel and insulate the basement was 1689$ taxes in.... Can you guess which quote I went with? So far so good. smile
