The rope lighting is standard white lighting, you're right, it does look amber in the pictures.

Watching the Iowa State and Iowa bowl games on New Year's Eve Eve.





I also got a PS3 Move setup for Christmas and picked up 3 more motion controllers on sale at Target for $40 each, it's pretty fun, but it seems that most Move party games got poor reviews. I guess I'll have to pick up a couple used and see for myself. Sports Champions went over well.

All carpeted!





I'm hoping to do the trim this week.

Got a birthday gift of vinyl signage from my sister, looks great!

Between buying the wife a new car and saving for a baby on the way (!!!), the theater is on hold, though all that is left is sound treatments, so needless to say we're enjoying it quite a bit.

The room is 15'x19', and the false screen wall is about one foot from the actual wall, so 15'x18'.

For my birthday this year, we finally decided to finish off the soffits.

I replaced the homemade MDF speaker mounts with legit mounts, and the soffits were lined with OC 703 acoustic insulation.

After that, the insulation was covered with Guilford of Maine FR701 fire resistant and acoustically-transparent fabric.

Trim painted and installed:

With the lights poking through:

I honestly don't know if it made a large difference in acoustics - I didn't really do any back-to-back listening sessions nor did I take any measurements. I might run the auto-calibration on my receiver again to see what it picks up now.

It looks great now and we're really happy with it. To totally call it completed, we still need to install blackout curtains for daytime viewing, finish trimming and painting the equipment cabinet, and do some touchup paint on the walls - all of this construction isn't nice to the paint, and the ultra matte paints I used aren't forgiving of flaws.
