Great job Trek. I love all of the wood, especially in your equipment/media closet.

I'm just on the other side of I45, off of Rayford Rd. I'd love to check out your space some day. Hopefully we can set up a Houston theater tour in the near future. I think there are about 6 or 8 Houston builds on here.

Spaceman,

Sounds good. You are more then welcome to check the HT out... you are very close by. Maybe in a few weeks when we get the game room done. Let me know what works for you. Thanks for the nice comments. biggrin.gif I have been watching your build thread. Keep up the good work.smile.gif

Audioguy,

No fish eye... A Nikon D3 full frame camera with a 14-24mm wide angle lens shot with a tripod. Thanks for the nice comments.

Do you have access behind the equipment? How big is the equipment room?

Great looking room. Do you have any pics of the construction? (I love build pics.)

Wraunch,

The media equipment room is appoximately 6' x 7'10" before the wood work was done. I designed the shelves on the right to slide out to gain access to the back of the rack. It is not ideal, a full size door would have been better, but the space would not permit it.

Bitten by HT,

It would be nice to have the folks in Houston get together, maybe out for lunch somewhere. Thanks for the nice comments on our HT.


HAPPY 4TH of JULY!

Love your relaxed feel in that room. Speakers out on display, comfy sofa up the front, wide open spaces. Beautiful build, and also wonderfully shot images.

I notice you have a 4 zone GE, I have the same actually. Just wondering what light sets you have on your zones?

There are quite a lot of fairly expensive Home Theatres here on the forums, but one rarely sees a theatre that combines a large budget with absolutely fantastic taste- and this is the rare example of having both a fairly expansive budget and making incredibly great aesthetic decisions which makes the most of every penny spent.

Often Home Theatres end up having a sort of show-off feel, where the owner wants to show every bell and whistle, and adds entirely too many items, too many patterns and all together too much info for the eye. A theatre should enhance the viewing of the film....it should service the appreciation of the movie being watched, as this theatre does. It's warm, inviting and for all it's beauty- it is simple and elegant. It is relaxed and rich at the same time.

Kudos on a marvelous job.

TheSly, Can lights, Sconces, and the fiber optic ceiling are on the GE. The fourth spot is still unused at this time... How about your lighting set up? Thanks for the nice comments on the HT.wink.gif

dukstuf,

As you know the design of ones HT is a personal choice and not everyone has the same taste in layout and decor. In this case it looks like you and I are on the same page!wink.gif
Thanks for the super nice comments on our HT. It is much appreciated!biggrin.gif

Cheers,

Great room, very inspiring. I'm also in Houston, trying to build something similar. Mind if I hit you up with some random questions one of these days?
