After a recent brutal work travel schedule I finally have time to post pics of my room.
I moved into my new home last October. One of the stipulations between the wife and I was that I HAD to have space for a dedicated theater room. No compromising on that one. Thankfully I got my wish! Construction of my first dedicated room began 11/1/14. It was a 4th bedroom on the 2nd floor that measured 13' x 19'. Had one window, a closet, and a bathroom. Thanks to you guys and all the info in this forum I made my wish come true!
Unfortunately, I can't locate my "before" pics. So i will have to just show you the finished product.

And most importantly - a very happy family of movie fanatics!
EDIT: There are LED lights on both sides of the stairs. The left side lights up when the sensor is tripped at the foot of the stairs, and the right side lights up when someone exists the room. In other words, one side lights up to guide the way up, and the other side lights up to guide the way down.
