I'm still gonna say that the TV is mounted too high,
but I do like the overall look.
If yours turns out half as nice I would say you could be very proud of your work.
The set I'm looking at will definetly be lower than this one, and my fireplace is way lower to the ground than the pic shows.
I'm Sorry, that stone in that pic is REAL, it's sold at The Tile shop, and it weighs 25 lbs per piece, each piece is 6" x 23 inches long.
The entire face of my wall-unit will be covered just like that.
This IS my only option, ( money wise ) and I have 18 x 18 lime stone that's going on the floor, and my best friend tile installer who installs tile & stone for a living, will be my saving grace...
I know, everyone is right about screen height, unfortunately, I made this decision a-long time-ago. It would have been perfect for a projector screen, but I'm not loosing out on my 3,000 investment in the fireplace and paying again to re-install, and run a new gas line, & inspect.
The crew starts Monday, and it's full steam ahead, I will post progress pics, I have to get a new digital camera, doe!
After this is all complete, and the house is shined up and sold, I will definetly buy a house or build one that has enough room just like the same thread as Big Red Theater Build
, and build a theater similar to that, I have many components that I'm not using here like my grafik eye 6 zone unit and more, speciality lighting, several rolls of wire, etc.
Late Friday Eve Idea ( LOL ) Tonight I'm going to try to see if I can get a cabinet to one side of the Fireplace, I think I can move the FP a-little, about a foot or so, to the left., and I'll see what size of cabinet I can fit in there, I just bought a new cabinet making saw, getting ready to make some vanity cabinets.
