    My Completed Home Theater Project... (pic's)

    I thought about two rows of seats, but there were several reasons I decided against it... I would not be able to open the rear french doors, This would permamently 'close' the room. (Right now I can open doors on both sides and create an open concept.) I would have to build a riser for the...

    The paint is from the Benjamin Moore collection. Color code was posted in one of the earlier threads in this post. Looks much nicer in person. The pics I took have a lot of light projected on to the walls...

    I completely agree with you. The pics posted here were taken with some ambient light, and the lights right above the doors certainly don't help. With the lighting dimmed down all the way, it's not a big problem although bright scenes will show the white doors again. I do plan on painting them...

    Thanks for the kind words guys! I'm just trying to make time to enjoy it now. It's funny when my wife keeps asking "You wanna' watch a movie tonight?" It sure makes the experience more dramatic to say the least. You hear sounds and notice details that would otherwise be missed. I've never been a...

    Pic's have been updated with my new Palliser seats and custom framed movie posters. I decided to get them dry mounted without glass to prevent any glare. Even the anti-glare glass shines with lights above it. Now my theater is truly complete...

    Thanks! With the ducting in the way all I could fit was 3" recessed halogen lights. A nice trick with the lighting is a simple Lutron dimmer switch from home depot. The lights come on and off slowly just like in a real theater and with a remote control. You can then use a programmable remote...

    First PAUSE the onscreen video to prevent motion blurr. Secondly hold your camera VERY still or use a tripod stand. You will have to play with the shutter settings on your camera to get an ideal picture, or set it to night mode... I used a digital SLR - Nikon D70 with high-end ED series...

    Benjamin Moore HC-85. I painted my basement different shades of taupe and this is a beautiful color especially for the HT room.

    The trick is to do it in stages! Obviously I didn't have the cash to go out and buy everything in a day, or hire a contractor to build the basement right away. I told her from day one that I'm putting in the time & effort to build the basement myself and the only thing I had done was the...

    I plan on putting the seats at approx. 18ft away from the screen. This should also give me about a 6ft distance from the rear wall and enough clearance to swing open the rear doors.

    I can't say enough good things about this projector. I did a lot of research on 1080p projectors within $10K and this model ranks among the top 5. There's a couple of indepth reviews online. I also looked at the Sony VPL-VW100 which is over $10K but it is difficult to justify the price...

    Well it took almost 6 months of evenings and weekends to complete this project. I would come home after work and put in about 2 hrs a night. I had to re-do all the electrical, heating and plumbing to open up this room for the home theater. The furnace and hot water tanks had to be removed...
