Any updates? I just subscribed to this thread based on the coolness of the carpet alone smile.gif Great build. Also because I want a red and black theater. And we're getting close to the build. I've been buying random supplies here and there.

That's wasn't flying... That was falling with style!

Yeah work and actually enjoying things has kept me away for a bit. I still have some finishing touches to make but I'd say 95% complete.

Pictures coming...

Really outstanding work. Congratulations on a great space. What are your impressions of the room?

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

Don't listen to 'em, I think the carpet is the most interesting thing in there!

Absolutely love it. I had plans to build two more subwoofers for the rear corners but after adding aura bass shakers to each chair, I don't need em.

It's really a dream come true to be able to come home from work on a friday night and pop some popcorn, and throw in a movie.

Thanks for letting me know. I spent the entire night ripping up the carpet. So glad you were able to give me a heads up.

Kidding aside, the carpet is by the #1 thing people like about the theater. I was nervous about the pattern when my wife picked it out but it's perfect after seeing it installed.

Yes I made velvet frames to surround the screen. They are not attached to the screen. The screen is mounted to the false wall frame and the velvet frames are attached around it to the false wall frame by friction and velcro.

The screen doesn't have any moulding on it.

I made the screen out of 1x4s. Worked great.

No issue with seeing the center supports when you stretched the spandex over the frame? Where the center supports flush with the front of the frame?

Yes. You will need a small piece of molding around the perimeter to keep the spandex out a bit

How did you attach the shoe moulding to your frame?

Nice job with the room. I like the carpet, it's really funky.

Scandal, I'm having a hell of a time with the spandex not staying in the screen tight. What size splinting did you use? The spandex keeps pulling the spline out on mine. I'm using .125".

I fixed it, had to go back and get .175 spline and it made it all MUCH easier. What did you use for the black panels around the screen? I figure you had to use AT material. That is up next for me.

Come see my Livin' the Dream build!

This build is perfect. This is exactly what I want. Down to the carpet! Although if I could picket a carpet exactly like that by maybe red where the white is, or gray where the white is, that might make it even better. But I'd totally take it as is! Of course a St. Louis Cardinals logo would look great in there But otherwise perfect.

That's wasn't flying... That was falling with style!
