Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I solved the LED rope light won't turn off problem!! What I did was get one of these, and plug it into a cheater plug, and then plug the cheater plug into my dimmer outlet... I tried it down to 1% and then turned it off and it works flawlessly!

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Today we got the screen in position, and got the first coat of paint on 3 walls and the ceiling. The La Scala bass bins will be raised to the same height as the center channel.


MLP in the 2nd row.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Yesterday I got the LED rope lighting up (I still need to get the end caps so I can trim it). Once I get the "T", 90 degree, and end caps I will work on the LEDs around the front screen. When the carpet is installed I will finish the last 3 zones of LED rope lights.
The LEDs look much better in person (these are taken with my Samsung Galaxy Note).

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Today we got the soffits completely painted flat black, outlets installed for the stair rope lights, stage is completely framed and has 2 layers of OSB on the top of the stage. Hopefully the carpet will be installed early this week. Once the carpet is installed we can finish the wall behind the screen (and ceiling). Once that is done we can run the HVAC ducts for the MB, the return duct, mount the projector install the screen, install the speakers, load te rk with equipment and move in the seating. Getting close now...

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I def did not need a hot weather week now.... I just got all the insulation we have stuffed in the stage (I need one more bag to finish it off). Carpet will be installed in the morning, so today will be getting the room ready for the carpet guys. Room is completely painted black except for behind the screen, and the entrance hallway. Hopefully we will be moving equipment in after this coming weekend and start tuning the room.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Your build is looking good.
Since I am replacing a failed hot water heater today, hot water heaters are fresh on my mind.
If yours is approaching end of life (around 9-10 years old) it might be worth thinking about replacing it now and installing the new one in a pan with a drain going to the outside.
I know you already have most of your construction completed, but it would be awful to get everything flooded when the hot water heater dies.

Good advice... Ours is about 5 years old... It has a pan, and a drain already.
