Went and looked at a house yesterday and the only issue was a HT room. There is a den in the basement that is 12 x 16 and I was like -- "well I guess I can put a big TV on the wall and couches"..... this is from going from a house with a HT with two rows in it so I was kind of disappointed.
Well this thread has shown me that it can be done and look amazing. So thanks everyone! If we get the house I will be back and re-learn everything plus a bunch more and time to build one from scratch
