Your flooring looks great, did you leave enough room along the walls for floor expansion though?

Oh yes it looks flush to wall because the 5/8 drywall is raised up from the 1/2 inch so there is about 5/8 of space for expansion

CONGRATS! it sounds like you are at the beginning of the end. I just recently completed the cut-out for my PJ and am planning on purchasing the Panny 8000 as well. I will be anxiously awaiting your opinion on it out of the box. I posted yesterday on the Panny 8000 thread about best price. Best I am seeing out there is $2599 at Projector People (amongst authorized dealers at least). How about you?

I believe it was you who pointed me in the direction of the BM Advance paint. I just used it to paint the custom A/V rack I built and it is hands down the best paint I've ever used. Never gummed up on the brush and the brush marks just disappear in the paint. I used Fresh Start primer from BM and then hit it with two coats of the Satin Advance. Amazing stuff. Hell, I'd consider painting my new baseboards with that as well...considering how tough it is. Thanks again for the lead! smile.gif

That's not gonna help much. Soon you'll find yourself finding big boxes, stacking them together, put the projector on top and call it's done for now! tongue.gif

your right ...... just a little disappointed

apparently at one the shipping locations a fork lift driver missed judge and sliced through about 6 feet of it
they noticed something wasn't right when the cardboard tube was sticking out one end and was all torn up
so they unrolled it and found the huge tear

so hopefully next week it will be done ..... gives me time to get some other odds and ends done

That is fantastic.

On a side note; the speakers look like they are mounted a little high. What height are your WG's at?

Congrats on the carpet. I've seen a lot of threads on here and that carpet could be one of the best looking I've seen. I especially love the way it looks/blends with the tile from the bar. Congrats on getting over that big carpet hump. Fantastic look.

Thanks , not sure how night the wave guides are I know the bottom the speaker a few inches above the bottom of where the scene will be .... I guess if need be I have enough room on the shelf to but wedge under the backs of the speakers and toe them down some

Oh yes very excited but at same time very tired .... My advice to anyone that uses this carpet is to watch it being installed ... After looking at the pattern for a Long time the installers eyes can go buggy I caught them in what could of been a huge mistake with lining up the rows ... They where getting ready to do the first seem near the riser and I noticed they where off and was like Waite!! We all stood back and saw where is was mid aligned by one row .. So they just shifted it over one and then seamed ...
