    I've posted some pictures in case anyone is interested in how we constructed columns to hide our side and rear speakers. The photo album also has some pictures of the rest of the theatre under construction. The upper fabric is actually a dark green, but with this digital camera it looks like a light blue. We have completed the theatre except for chairs (on order) and the curtains and hope to post finished pictures soon.

    Chris,
    That's one great looking HT [​IMG]
    What are the dimensions of your room?
    I like the idea of hiding the speaker like that, gives it a very clean look.
    Well done, I'm extremely jealous.

    Unbelievable!!! Your theater room looks awesome. Do you have written down somewhere all of the trade-offs and thought processes that went into designing such a great theater?

    Thanks for the nice comments. The room was originally a storage area in our basement, with a second smaller storage area that we opened up. The completed room is about 15 ft wide and 21 feet long. The screen is 96" by 54". There is a small foyer that contains the backlit marquee that you see in the pictures and the built-in equipment rack, which is not shown. In order to build the room we had to move some heating pipes, and I hired a contractor to do that, as well as to do the basic framing and most of the sheetrock work. I did low voltage wiring, the insulation work, the framing for the speakers, all of the fabric and trim work, painting, installation of equipment, etc. The wood is a cherry-stained birch. The columns use birch veneer, which is also cherry-stained. Dennis Erskine did the original design, which I modified a bit. Dennis calculated the acoustic treatments that are covered by the fabric. The projector is a G90, which was a bear to mount, which is slightly recessed into the ceiling. The ceiling is "floating," i.e. it does not touch the subfloor above so that there is no sound transmission through the wood. I am working on organizing my thoughts onto a web page that will describe what I did and what I might have done differently (which is not much, I was pretty satisfied with how the work progressed). We started this project in earnest about 9 months ago.
