    Well, after 7 weeks of almost non-stop work, my HT and basement are pretty much done. We finished about 1500 sqft of the basement at the same time we did the HT.
    This was my first stab at building a dedicated HT, but we're very pleased at how it turned out.

    Thanks. The green room in the pics is our new office where we'll be moving our business (currently above the garage) as soon as I get new computer desks.

    I'll update pics when my new front loading poster frames and SW posters come in this week (Bday present from the wife).

    Oh, and I love the ELT speaker system. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for great sound on a budget (like me).

    PJ is a Boxlight 1HD if anyone wants to know. Thanks everyone for the info I gleaned from the forum while putting this together.

    Wow!

    Looks Great.

    Do you mind me asking what brand and color name the paint is? Have you found that its to dark for the room?

    Thanks,
    ian

    The color is Behr Vin Rouge. It's probably what most ppl comment on when they come into the room. I love it and don't think it's too dark at all.

    Currently, the equipment list is fairly short:
    Sony DVP-NS425P DVD player
    Denon 1804
    Rocket ELT system
    SE Boxlight 1HD/Sanyo Z1
    Mid Atlantic enclosed 72" equipment rack.
    Cables from Bluejeans cables.
    All wall outlets from Parts Express.
    Vogels rear speaker mounts modified to fit ELT rears.
    The next addition will be a ProntoPro 6000 remote so I don't have to juggle all these remotes.

    We just finished flooring last Thursday, so I still have the perpetual grin on my face from the first few movies we've watched. Next, I'll have to build a concession stand and marquee.

    Looks great, Your color is very close to the color I did my HT, my pictures make the color look a little lighter than it really is. Good Luck, gotta luv it...

    Clay,

    Where did you buy your cabinet, and if you don't mind me asking how much was it? I want to do the same thing, but could go a smidge smaller than 60" --- but not much. Looks great!

    It's a Mid Atlantic from Markertek. I think it was about $480 shipped.

    Thanks, twice a year they have a TV convention in NJ by Giants stadium, and they bring in alot of the older TV & Horror actors to meet. The next one is in April, and Adam West (Batman) Frank Gorshin (Riddler) are some of the guests. I go and get 8x10's signed, but I'm running out of room.
