Great job and I got 3 months before our home is being built.
No worries on a home w/o a full dedicated HT room. I was going to get one, but opt to get the living room HT that goes into the kitchen and dining into the living where my electric screen will be for full theater and dinner entertainment.
Like the IKEA concept and cant wait to close and get things going for my HT as it sux that now we're in small living space (with family) until then. However, my pull up screen by FAVI is still doing great (almost an year old, since last post) and I do plan to keep this screen for backyard HT in the near future for it portable'ness

Here's a picture overhead. Problems you run into is that the entire front end is essentially floating in the air. The only thing that's holding up the weight are the sides and extra 2 brackets in the middle. It's a significant amount of weight; I hope I don't come home one day and find everything on the floor! Getting it to not flex downward and forward is also tricky. Also, the entire system is very front heavy (for obvious reasons) - bolted to the wall permanently is a requirement. It sure was interesting trying to lift this thing over your head, bolt it down and back, while making sure it doesn't tip over on you. Making sure you can fit the entire case width overhead is also pretty critical (I didn't have much space leftover) while making sure that all your bracketry still works. Alignment to make sure the screen doesn't drag when moving up and down is also critical. It honestly was fun putting it together, hoping that it'd come out the way you wanted it to.
