Low Voltage guys doing the last bit of speaker/CAT6 before everything gets closed up:
Your trophy room is going up very quickly, do you have an "in" with the contractor? What mounts do you already have to start "decorating" with? What others do you have plans for?
Just saw post. Looks really nice. Here is what I did. Room is 24x30 attached to house. Walls are 10 ft, vaulted to 14 ft then flat. I used sheet rock on all of ceiling and 1x6 tongue and groove No 3 or cabin grade poplar on all walls. Used clear satin water base polyurethane to seal wood. I can move mounts and screw holes are not obvious because of character of wood. Then used dropped track lighting with 2 tracks and moveable spot lights. See attached photos of a couple of sections. Lots of compliments on room esp wood. Waiting on buffalo to finish hanging remainder of mounts. Good luck.
Wow, that is going to be a beautiful trophy room. Congrats!!!
The contractors are motivated.
You are going to be sitting back in your arm chair by the end of January.
Smokepole - I love the look of the wood. Very clean and pops. I was debating on putting some up on the ceiling but it is pricey unless you are doing it yourself.
The contractor has been amazing - he has the guys working back to back, day after day. I think the workers are motivated to be paid in time for Christmas.
Workers are carrying up tiles for the roof. What a tough job!
Those tiles make for a very heavy roof. But they look nice.
Looks like it's going to be quite the trophy room! Looking forward to seeing the finished product
I didn’t use the plywood and regret it. It totally limits how you can place your mounts. Good advice
Beautiful trophy room! I love the idea for the corners to maximize mounting space!
Hopefully you planned well for the outside walls, they filled them bad boys completely with foam. I don’t see any afterthought additions there without stripping it back to the studs.
Now that was smart man!
Perfect. Finish the wall however you wish - I much prefer drywall and cool paint. You can hang where the muse directs - the studs are a non-issue.
Looks awesome!!!! Cant wait to see the finished product
Please don’t take offense, but I hate the canned lights in my house! They don’t point at anything and just create hot spots. I believe if I did it again, I’d put in track lights to highlight each trophy. JMO and probably as wrong as my canned lights!
You should look at some led can trims. they diffuse the light much better , are much brighter and use about 1/6 the wattage!
I will have both track lighting and can lights. All of them are on separate dimmers so I should have pretty good control of overall lighting. The only decision left is paint color. I'm leaning toward a tan color with some sort of faux effect to it to break it up a bit.
They worked hard right up to Christmas eve
Man you aren’t kidding. The crew is working fast.
