I wanted to start a thread with pictures of the progression of our HT. We finally have drywall hung, so it is really starting to take shape.
We decided to move to a more family friendly location away from the city once our daughter
was born in October, 2002. We had just finished our basement in our old house
and really enjoyed our setup. It sounded good, looked good, but we only had a 34" HDTV. I knew that if we moved, I would be able to start over and do something even nicer.
We moved into our new house
in May 2003. Big plans to do the basement as soon as possible, but of course with a new house, other priorities are set. It actually was a good thing, because I was able to take my time to read AVS and learn everything I could before I began.
