    Hi all.
    I started building my dedicated theater room in the basement of our new house in January. I finally got enough done that it looks like something so I thought I'd share. Sheet rock starts tonight. It seems like it's taking a long time. Im finishing the whole basement at once, myself. Ive bought all the equipment so most of the pain is over.
    The direct link: http://24.31.30.30/theater/construction.htm
    or go through the link in my sig and dig down through the site.

    Ron,
    It looks great so far I cant wait to see the finished pics. couple of questions, the glass on the bottom of the steps leading up to the theater how do you replace the lights when they go out, and what did you use for lights?
    What are you going to be putting into the game room? Video games, Pool table, etc.

    Hi Kyle,
    Thanks. I update my site whenever a major chore is completed. Hopefully it will go faster once the sheetrock is up. Im hiring out the taping and sanding. It would take me forever.
    The step is pretty heavy ,but it will gasketed and held down in the back by (4) screws buried in the carpet. They will be hidden below the backing of the carpet, but Ill be able to unscrew them. Nobody will step at the extreme back of the step so it shouldnt be an issue. I'll put some hook&loop on the front as well. Florescent bulds last a long time, considering how much it will be on, I doubt ill ever have to change the ballast or the buld. I used (2) 6500K bulbs in 3ft holders.
    The game room is a little to small for a pool table. I dont want to crowd it. It'll have a wet bar, bar table, and foosball table. Maybe a real popcorn popper if Im a good boy [​IMG]

    Wow Ron
    That looks like it is going to be one fine theater experience when completed. You gave me atleast a dozen ideas and you can't have'em back. I will be showing your setup to the wife, and asking please.
    Thanks for posting.
