    Glad to see your still around, even if your just being the creepy neighbor lurking in the shadows and peeking in the windows occasionally :smile:

    Sheetrock hoist....possibly one of "the" best purchases i have ever made at a whopping $120.

    WHat are your plans with Mr. Pole?

    Do you have poly on top of your kraft faced insulation? That's an extra step which isn't necessary.

    I am actually remodeling my kitchen at the same time and there is to be a corner separating the rooms that was removed. That pole will be moved, it's just temporarily placed right now n but will be placed going through a future bar/table then encased in random rock out some type of veneer.

    The way my house is framed, it doesn't really allow the Kraft faced insulation to form a vapor barrier, Lots of oversized cavities, undersized cavities, boards ruining at angles, etc etc so I cut slits in the facing and simply applied a 6 mil barrier through the whole room. Excessive but it works

    I had never really updated anything in the kitchen beyond some minor wood working and paint.

    In the kitchen, I relocated the master bedroom door from being in the kitchen to the hallway, then I used that old doorway to frame in a pantry. The washer and dryer use to be in the kitchen in a little room, I tore out the room and moved those appliances to the back of the house where there is a perfect spot for them.avo4if66cbig.jpg

    In the master bedroom I sealed off the old closets then built new master closets in the bedroom. Those old master closets, I punched out the wall another 10" in the living room and will make that a coat closet and half bathroom.

    Love the tile work Trey!

    I built an in-wall equipment rack in our HT and love the space savings!

    Also, all I could think of when I saw the fourth pic in your first post was this:



    Oh YEAH!

    Keep up the good work and keep the pics coming!

    Slowly making progress - once I have the sheetrock up on the right wall, will be moving back into the kitchen area...

    My right shoulder is still recovering from the accident and those 5/8" sheetrock sheets are killing meb0a4xg5nbbsd.jpg

    Looks good, Trey. The fireplace chimney is gone?
  • nooshinjohnnooshinjohn Posts: 18,628
    Hope it's not too late on the framing... I would increase the opening for the tv to take a 75 inch panel. Nobody is going to produce 70" anymore. Just heard this last week while shopping with my wife for a new tv in the living room.

    I have been procrastinating quite a bit on this due to corner bead. I did a lot of research and had a hard as heck time finding one of the three wide leg corner beads I found in my research. The one place I found happened to have like 60 pieces of it from an order like 5 years ago that was never picked up... lucky me!

    But I freaking love it, will be very hard for me to use standard metal corner bead again... mjudobmg7t5w.jpg

    HOLY HELL!!! The screws!!!!
    Did you do a load calc on the structure before installing that much metal? An easier way to install cornerbead is a staple gun.

    Just an FYI ;)

    Hurry up!

    Frederique...... I have personally helped the lad reframe a lot of that house. After seeing the amount of course thread screws he used, I bought hot stock in the manufacturer. I flipped it two months later at about 450%.
    Dude has a fastener fetish......

    Hahaha...

    My house was built in 1903... as such... it is as out of round, out of square, out of level as they come... and staples just wont cut it.

    I also don't want any popped joints due to an infinite baffle subwoofer :p

    Trey's motto when it comes to screws?

    If it requires one, place 20 in and around the same spot just to make sure.

    Tom
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Trey... can I throw an idea out at you? Your room is PERFECT for this concept......

    Instead of artwork in the middle imagine its your TV

    IMG_0524.JPG?psid=1&width=319&height=240

    IMG_0578.JPG?psid=1&width=319&height=240

    That way you can install a nice PJ in ceiling to use at times (when good movies are playing) while using the 70" TV for normal stuff to save your PJ bulb...
