so we started by ripping down the dry wall in the bedroom
and took out the door frame
looks like my secret was out, my buddy asked what the heck the box was in the wall, I bought it off sportsman guide years ago
since I had no where to mount it now I ripped the picture face plate off and threw away the box
we tore off the wainscoting
and removed the drywall and started banging out the studs
holy crap the room is huge
we wrapped up the wiring, I had two outlet circuits, the ceiling fan, surround sound wiring and smoke detector to deal with, so after some discussion we decided to box every thing in, so we went and picked up some pine
we used a one by four to box in the 2x6 in the celing
I had to run some wire to the dead ended circuit so we added a junction box instead of burying it in the wall, not happy with it but it is code
we used 1x12's to box in the ends
and used the chase to terminate the circuits easily, light switch and fan control for the ceiling fan
we cut out and added one outlet on one side for one circuit
and did the same on the opposite side for the other circuit, I removed one of the smoke detectors from the bedroom side and ended the circuit for them at the top of the chase, I wired everything up and tested it
tomorrow we just need to run the speaker wire and put the face plate boards on the boxed in chases and we are done besides painting, I think the island might be coming out as well tomorrow, my wife is sleeping on it.

Very Nice. I like how you used the chase for the electrical...plan on doing the same thing in a couple of areas so I don't have to look at surface mounted conduit...plus we can paint or stain as we like...
