I think your room is looking great, can't wait to see the final pics when completed.

Damn... you can almost touch the finish line. Congrats! You certainly put in a lot of work and should be - deservedly so - proud of your room. After the GG cures a bit more, would love to hear your overall impression.

My youngest has a dance competition today and my oldest has state solo ensamble contest most of the day. However, I managed to carry the Axioms down into the room between a few things earlier today. I have a feeling that we will end up watching something some evening even without a screen or acoustical treatments.

Just ordered the screen.material. I was going to get a premade frame from Jamestown screens and then put the Seymour XD acoustically transparent on it, but they are backlogged 2 weeks. So I will build my own frame and use the same Seymour material.

FYI that the uncalibrated image on a brown textured wall looked really good, and on the 8.5" x 11" screen sample looked awesome.

To top it off, the family voted and we are going to go with 135" diagonal 1.78:1 screen. I was afraid that they would veto that size of screen, but no. grin

Man, I can't wait to see the finished room. Like most people here, it does depress me that I'll never get my own home theater into such a shape, but at least I'll have your thread to refer to and inform at least some of the decisions I make.

I am sure that I will have a bunch of "lessons learned" things to share. I've learned so much, both good ideas as well as issues, from others but there is still a number of things that I couldn't find info on, so someone (like me) needs to get practical information out there for others to build from.

Would you mind taking photos of both, the good and the bad? so the rest of us can see what your talking about and learn the maximum amount possible.
