This is one of my favorite HT's on AVS - I really like the layout, large columns, colors and especially the wainscoting. Keeping the chair rail the same level throughout the entire room gives the illusion that the riser area is taller than it really is. How high is the chair rail on the riser? And on the main floor?

Big and/or NYGIANTSFAN - were the front columns left white like the rest of the columns? I'm going with this same color scheme and I'm wondering if the front columns will cause glare/reflection if I leave them white.

The colums are very shallow so not a big surface to glare. The color is not white it is an off white cream. Not a huge difference but it is subtle and you would notice if you held a piece of white paper up the paint.

Big/NYGIANTSFAN, I just found this thread while starting to plan a theater room, and it looks awesome! It's also be hugely helpful in learning how a few of the details are put together, so thanks for spending your time here. I've searched this forum a few times but haven't been able to find exact dimensions of the room beyond the height. Do you know what they are by chance? From back wall to screen and back wall to front wall, and the width, just to give us planners and idea of scale in the photos. Sorry if this has already been posted, I've searched and browsed through it a few times!

Thanks!

This is how I am finishing my theater (paneling on the bottom). A couple of questions.
How tall is the paneled part?
What did you use for acoustic treatment under the fabric on the side walls?
Any reflective issues you notice with the paneling?

Thanks

James

Nitro, I am not too sure what kind of acoustic treatment Big used under the fabric; sorry. As far as reflective issues, I have not noticed any and I use the room quite often now.

Jorock, Thanks and all of Jeffs work is a thing of beauty. There is no problem that Jeff cannot fix, work around or adjust to. His attention to detail is impeccable. I was grateful and lucky to have him build my theater room. The only regret I have, is carrying those damn 50Lb sandbags halfway around the house and into the basement................

This theater is my design inspiration. Awesome work all the way around. If you see a theater on here in about a year that looks vaguely familiar, it'll be mine.

One question I had that after going through this thread about a dozen times: I see the columns are MDF and basically three sided to cover the shelf supported speakers...But how did BIG secure the columns to the wall? The only place I can really think of, would be the speaker shelf.

Thanks!

I actually can't remember but I think put cross pieces In a few places where the fourth side of the box would be and with the fabric off ran screws into the wall. If I didn't put cross prices there isn't much to hold the box square. The column sits on the floor so all you need is to snug it to the wall, no real weight to hold. I'm on the road so I can't dig into my photo archive but I might have something later

Thanks BIG, that makes sense. Can't wait to see what's next for you!
