After 37 years in the Army they were kind enough (with begging) to reassign me to my future retirement location. 3 of my adult children live here with 9 grand children. I will be able to enjoy them and watch them grow unlike my own kids with the multiple deployments and overseas assignments over the years. I am having a house built on 5 acres in GA. Far enough out of town to have some privacy but close enough to work and shopping.

Screen DYI frame with Seymour Center Stage HD 126" wide 2.0 screen with minimalist wall and velvet panels. The Screen being 126"x65" gives me
126"x52" 2.40:1 with 136" diag, 6 12" bars top and bottom
126"x54" 2.35:1 with 137" diag, 5 1/2" bars top and bottom
120"x65" 1.85:1 with 137" diag, (man this size make it like being there) 3" bars both sides
116"x65" 16x9 with 133" diag. 5" bars both sides
So in the way the best of both worlds If I would have done a 2.40:1 screen 126" wide my 16x9 size would have been 92"x52" with 106" diag. If I would have done 16X9 65" tall my 2.40:1 would have been 116"x48" 126" diag.
