Yeah... the thing is though that our family REALLY doesn't go nuts. It just seems like we always wind up at the mall for one reason or another. I actually WENT to the mall on Tuesday to buy jeans for my son. (aside: why is it that 7 year olds can't make a pair of jeans last for more than a couple months?!?)
As promised I took a few photos with my new iPhone last night. The camera is certainly the best camera phone I've ever had but it's certainly not what I would call a "good camera"!
I made a 12x12 mockup of the wavy wall. It's DAMNED COOL! Check it:
I also keep adding to my design wall. You can see that I haven't fished the electrical wiring into the wall yet for the new lights. I'm going to fish that in eventually but I'm not in a rush. I'm hoping that Lutron will release a CFL/LED dimmer that's part of their Maestro series so I haven't bought the dimmers I want yet.
I have also been working on painting the soffits (and walls when I get bored). After the suggestions from you fine folks I think I'm going to enclose the sides with fabric-covered frames held on with Velcro.
The paint might not be necessary with my new soffit plan but I figured that I might as well do it to minimize visibility through the soffit fabric. To be honest, I have been busy doing things that are cheap/free lately because I've spent a lot on this project in the past month in buying the LED lights for the ceiling, can light fixtures, wire, etc. I happened to have the gallon of Mouse Ears already...
Again, I apologize for the abysmal cameraphone pics!
I've also been reading up on the Danley DTS-10 and that thing looks like a BEAST! I'm not sure how much the kit costs though... is there any kind of AVS discount? Tony123, you have two, don't you? What kind of amplification do you need to run one of these bad boys?
