    once i take a wall out the room will be 18x25, then i gotta figure out exactly what im gonna do, gonna take some first pics today, dont have my equipment picked out yet, gotta figure out my budget first. but as far as a projector goes I am leaning towards a sanyo PLV-Z1 or Z2, I want at least a 120 inch screen, will probably go with a 7.1 reciever, and Polk Or Klipsch speakers.

    Junk?!?! all i see is some comfy ht seating and lighting, a great gold wall sconce, a nice equipment night stand.. some wrapping paper.. (great wall treatment imo) Call up the previous owners and thank them for the head start!!

    Seriously though.. it will be worth it.. but.. what is that thing hanging on the inside of that small room, or hallway? (im referring to the thing in the top right of the door opening in the pictire, above the broom)

    LOL Jimi, thats pretty funny man

    That is a wall cabinet in that lil room, and oh yes I have some things to thank the previous owners for, such as the wonderful aroma of cats that still lingers in the house, I think I am going to need a young preist and an old priest to get rid of the smell [​IMG] its a longggg story, but an elderly lady had this house.........she had no family, well we were about the closest thing she had to family and she left the house "quite unexpectedly" to my parents, so i am buying it from my dad.....I asked him to just let me live there, he was like I love yah son but no "sensored" way lol....however all of their stuff, as you can see is still in the house, I never realized how some old people never throw ANYTHING away, anyone need any shoes.......there are about a billion pairs in this house!!!!!! or how about a 1952 Ford 8N tractor......still running!!!!

    You need to have a big garage sale to help fund and clear out the new home theater.

    ok got the part of the wall down minus the studs with outlets or switches, my electrician buddy is coming down to take care of those, I can do just about anything, but me and electricity dont get along, I also took down the ductwork that was in the way and started building the soffit

    no more wall

    Ok fellas, got some more work done over the weekend. Got some more walls framed in.... finished the rough frame in for the Component cabinet, and got the front wall finished on which the screen will be mounted, there is 2 feet behind this wall, this is where all the wiring for the theater will be ran to, and also where all my networking for the whole house will be ran too... Here are some pics

    I took some string and some screws in the studs measured out how big my screen was, you can bareley see it but I highlighted it in one of the pics.

    Component room "Behind Front Wall"
