    Hey all,

    Almost finished with my HT and took a few pictures, they are at the bottom of the page.

    I added the materiel to the walls, and black velvet to the entire bumpout wall behind the screen. I need to finish putting up the crown molding and put some materiel (or paint) on the door, but thats about it!

    Almost done, finally [​IMG]

    Still thinking about a name...

    How does: The Retreat sound

    I would think that the first thing you do when completing the HT would be watching some DVDs! [​IMG] Anyway, it looks very nice. I can see one spending many many quality hours in there. I especially like your built in equipment and DVD racks.

    Very nice HT.

    Question for you - how did you make your "material wall". I am thinking of doing something similar, but I am having a hard time planning the seams around the corner of the screen.

    Thanks Sean,

    It started out as a double picture window, I applied glaze to the inside of the windows so you couldnt see in them, then I framed it in, added the drywall, taped and floated it. Then, I bought the velvet, stapled it to one side of the wall and stretched it across and again stapled to the other side. I did this for the top and bottom of the wall. For the sides I just used smaller pieces with the same process. Keep in mind that the screen and frame was already mounted to the wall so I had to work around it, turned out pretty good I think.

    Was this what you were looking for?

    Sean,

    The seams are visible only if you are close. You are correct in that they (layers) overlap each other. But due to the material, it is hard to tell unless you are 3-4 feet away from the screen wall. With small ones, I would recommend some type of bonding agent between the overlap, possibly stitchwhich, velcro, superglue, or even fabric glue.

    Dave

    I know how ya feel about getting it finished and all. I just completed mine back in March. Talk about proud of something being completed.. now that's it! A dedicated HT room doesn't get any better than that!

    Peace!

    Very very nice! [​IMG] Hopefully my new HT rom will be finished in another week or two. It's nowhere near this elaborate, but it's gonna be great. [​IMG]

    Clinton,

    Thanks for the nice comments. My theater is not elaborate compared to some that I have seen, not by far. But then again, I did not have 50-100 grand to do it which is what some of these theaters cost!!!!!

    DIY and save a bundle [​IMG]
