    Hello all! It's been a while since I've posted or updated my theatre site (4 months to be exact). It's not that I haven't been working on it, just lazy about updating the progress. I apologize in advance for the quality of the photos, I'm using a digital video camera's photo feature. I'll try to get better pictures ASAP. You can still see that I've done quite a bit.

    The updated pictures are on page 6 of the construction photos.

    You've made great progress Randy and it looks wonderful!

    Did you do the carpeting yourself, and if so, how hard is it to install carpeting? Did you rent the equipment, such as carpet stretcher?

    Randy,
    Thanks for the update. It's really coming along quite well. I'll bet you can't wait until it's "showtime!"

    Very nice H/T. What size Stewart will you be installing? I know you will have many hours of enjoyment from the room.

    Though I have always been quite happy with my very modest HT "room", I still get VERY jealous of rooms like this. I wish I had a full basement that I could do this in.

    Nice job indeed!!!!

    Thanks for the nice comments. It's nice to share this with people who truly appreciate what goes into building something like this and understand the passion one develops for a "room".

    Earl, I plan on installing a 110" screen. It's surprising how well the silver fabric stretched over a 2x4 frame looks. I've put up a sample of the Greyhawk material and it will be absolutely incredible to get it, but this setup will have to do for a couple more months.

    Robert, It's been showtime since I was able to plug in a projector and shoot on a bare wall! I'm sure everyone has watched movies along the way during construction. It's like a giant carrot hanging out there making you get it done. It's just much more comfortable now.

    Scott, yes I did the carpet myself and it wasn't too hard. I really was hesitant about doing this step more than any other, but I bit the bullet and did it. I rented the stretcher and seam iron and got some helpful tips from the rental store. I only have one seam and it runs underneath the front row. It's pretty much invisible under the lighting I have in there. Overall, I'm really happy with the fact that my hands are the only ones that have built this room.

    I think I spend every night down there and I love it. The biggest compliment is when people say they feel like they are out at the movies and forget they are in our house. Just wait until the bar gets done!

    Thanks again guys.
