This is a new build thread for a new start on a project I started over a year ago. The original build thread along with the project it covered faded from memory to be buried in the dark recesses of the AVS forum. This is an attempt to breathe new life into my ailing project, A New Hope you could say.
To turn an unfinished basement into a family entertainment center with a semi-dedicated home theater, a game room, pool hall, exercise area, bathroom & storage.
