Hi everyone...my name is Sam. I am a long-time home theater / audio enthusiast and have DIY'd some sort of media space in the 4 places I've lived in over the last 20-odd years. I recently relocated for work and am happy to report that my family and I just bought our "forever" house in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I've just started my ultimate DIY adventure -- turning approx. 2000 sf of unfinished (but beautifully climate trolled) basement into some combination of dedicated HT, game room, and storage space. I am decidedly NOT a construction/DIY guy, so looking to learn how others have tackled these kind of projects. Love the forum, look forward to posing more!
