This weekend I worked on the theater room some more. I started to frame the proscenium base. It’s been very slow going, but it’s some progress.

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

I installed some carpet in the theater room. I don’t think it’s permanent, but it will have to do for now. I also found the tiles that I’m going to install in the wall arch. Here are some pictures:

Theater Room: Added an arched opening

Saturday, August 15th, 2009

I framed an arched opening in the theater room. Ultimately, it’s going to be tiled, but for now it’s just framed in. It was pretty simple to do. I just used a string to draw a semi-circle on the drywall and cut it out. Then I built a simple wooden arch and placed it behind the drywall. I added a couple of two by fours for the lower shelf and to add depth. I’m going to add lighting and possibly build a water feature into it.
