Well, my wife and I have finally begun to settle into our new home in Texas (we moved from Nashville). And of course, the first order of business was to set up the new “Theater room.” (You’ve got to have priorities, after all!)

We already had the TV, A/V equipment (including speakers), and entertainment center. It was all in more of a “Den” setting in our old home, but this house has two living areas, and we realized one room was well suited for a dedicated theater room. Although, for all practical purposes, it is our “Living Room,” since we spend most of our time there!

New items included the carpet, popcorn machine, theater seating, posters & frames, and few other things to decorate the room. My Dad-in-law helped to paint the room, and my Mom-in-law made the curtains. I installed the accent lighting & dimmers, and also sanded, stained, and painted the round table and stools (which was furniture from our previous home). I also had to drop a cable run for the TV and speaker wire for the surround speakers. The autographed pics were previously hanging in the office of our old house, and we decided they would now be well suited to go into the theater room.

I should point out that I have come a long way since I joined the Home Theater Forum, and HTF has been an invaluable resource in terms of information. Everyone has been very helpful when I had questions to ask. From the time I joined till now, I have pretty much gone from a basic DVD player and 4:3 TV to what you see in the pics below.

Anyway, enjoy the pics! (My wife is into photography and put together some panoramics.)

Great. Great job! I love the Trek wall of fame.


BTW, now you need to get a FPTV to with your room. Once you go front projection you will wonder why it took you so long to get one. I know I sure miss mine.

Again, wonderful job. You should be very proud.

BTW, I lived in Houston for about 9 years.
