I have made some pretty good progress, and had a week long Cruise since my last post.
I combined my Screen Wall Fabric Frames along with the actual Screen Frame into a single structure. Here are the pieces of the "Screen Wall" I put together. I essentially made 4 rectangles, attached them all together with Kreg Pocket Screws, and then put the Screen Material on the back side of it.
My 'right' side as you face the screen, actually is a single vertical stud, with smaller door hinges on the edge, and another rectangular frame attached to it - so I can access the electric panel.
You can see the carpet pretty well in the above pictures, but this shows in in relation to the wall color a bit more.
Here is a picture of the Screen Wall. This is a 11' wide (~ 143" Diag.) 2.35:1 screen. I bought a Falcon Screens "DIY" set up, i.e., they provided the screen as well as the grommets & o-rings. I just attached it to my screen wall. This was a very affordable way to go, and I had a few questions for Rich/ Falcon Screens and he was incredibly responsive, even well after I had purchased the screen (I bought it in February, and asked a question yesterday morning). My room is about 17 1/2 feet wide, so, a fair bit of space on the sides. I used Royalty 3 Velvet from JoAnn Fabric, and it seems incredibly dark to me - but to be transparent, I haven't seen others to compare it to.
This shows my Theater chairs pretty well, 4 in front, 5 in back, and I'll have 5 bar stools as well.
Here are side views of the room with the Column frames completed. I used velcro to attach the frames(actually Dual Lock), so they are removable.
I hung the projector, so hopefully that doesn't stop me where I am at!! I still need to complete my bottom row of Fabric Panels now that the carpet is in. I am also still waiting for the UXL-18s I ordered via the Group Buy to come in... although, my sub boxes aren't yet completed - so, 'waiting' is a bit of a loose term.
My 'equipment room' is at a bare minimum right now, enough to play a movie & music, and that is about it. I hope to do figure out how to build a NAS and a HTPC at some point, but figure I'll get to that after I finished my fabric panels & sub boxes.
