I have had e-Cinema bookmarked for months. I always look forward to the updates.
If it wasn't enough, they wouldn't call it the minimum.

W-O-W Erik that is simply A-W-E-S-O-M-E!

That is one HUGE upgrade (FP and ML's) you did.
The curtains your wife made you are incredible!

My wife has been a huge help with my HT room I am building (my layout is very similar to yours). She decided the paint colors, carpet and she helped with the molding and the riser layout, but she is drawling the line at curtains (I showed her this thread) Posted Image She said she is horrible with a sewing machine.

Are you done upgrading for a while? Posted Image

Erik you nut, you went and did it again!Posted Image Lookin good there bud. Can't wait to read all about it on your site.

And by the way I FINALLY got some rope light channel. HD said they were being phased out, so with that said I bought every piece they had.Posted Image

Oh, and I'm mad at you for lying to me. Your website made it out to be oh so simple to install the rope light in the channel. Maaannnn, I broke into a sweat trying to get that stuff into that damn channel!!Posted Image Posted Image

But I must say that that the end result does look quite good, so for that I must thank you.Posted Image :b
