Wow. Looking good. What a difference the paint makes. I'm a little confused on the screen pic. Is that the frame that is your wall color in the pic, and you have since painted it flat black? Is the screen black?

Can't wait to see more.

The paint colour turned out to our liking, the colour is much less orange than it appears in the picture. I built a 'frame' that is painted the wall colour, and the interior is painted flat black. I have a retractable screen that will go on the wall, over the flat black and the visible portions around the screen will act as a border. I painted the entire inside of the framed area black, since it will be visible when the screen is rolled up. I wanted something different than simply having a screen bolted onto the wall, and I think this gives it a bit of a built-in look, and adds architectural interest to the front wall.

The floors are now in! Again, poor quality pictures, the new battery did not seem to help.

I started the electrical finish work, with only the pot-light trim remaining. I hope to set-up the speakers tonight, although I'm still not sure how I'll mount the center speaker (stand or wall).

Absolutely beautiful!

Have you decided on room treatments? That looks like it will be quite a lively room.

I love what you've done with the recessed screen. That setup would really lend itself to some inwall speakers.

Your progress is smokin! Keep the pictures coming!

In reply to:

Is it just me or does that sound like a kinky euphemism?

"Wanna let the snake out of the aquarium tonight, honey?"

Why did you go with hard wood floors?

Because hard wood is prettier than carpet?

and soft wood isn't a good flooring material.
