    Wow, I didn't realize until today that HTF had a construction forum. Cool! [​IMG] Thought some of you might like to see my mess, er, construction that is currently going on.
    Equipment set-up is:
    Marquee 8500LC CRT with 8" tubes
    Draper 92x52 Cineperm 16:9 1.3 gain
    Speakers (?) still looking
    Amp/Receiver Sony DB930
    My HTPC for DVD, games and surfing
    Lutron Grafik Eye for lighting control
    Philips Pronto TSU-2000
    Seating (probably rocker/recliners)
    Wall Fabric: Guilford of Maine FR701 Amethyst (light purple) on top and Quartz (beige) on the bottom.
    Here's the link: www.users.qwest.net/~shaunpressley
    I'd be interested in your comments.
    Thanks!
    Shaun

    Man, your theater went up fast! I should've contracted...
    Looks great so far! Keep us posted with new pics.
    One question, why did you mud and prime the drywall if you are covering it anyways?

    Ace - I mudded and taped to keep the sound in. You see, my son's bedroom is on the other side of the screen wall. Hence the double wall, R-38, soundboard, etc. I wanted a tight room, if you know what I mean.
    A better question I keep asking myself is why did I paint the front wall black, just to cover it with TheaterShield Plus.... I still can't answer that question with any logic. [​IMG] I guess I started painting and didn't stop until I ran out of paint. [​IMG]
    I ordered carpet today so I need to finish the walls this weekend and get the baseboard installed.
    BTW - I have a long detailed post running in the AVSForum, Theater Construction area, in case you want to read more history.
    Enjoy.
