Yes, still trying to convince myself to get started on a room either above garage or basement. It's only been two years!!! LOL.
I know I can get room above garage done easier, cheaper and probably by myself but with compromises such as a smaller screen. As for basement it would be way better, but cost more, take longer and I would probably have to hire it out. That's why I am still stuck and haven't done crap yet... ;(
I was planning at least 10ft away for seating distance based on what I read about the screen material on that thread. That's why I'm concerned about screen size so much as I will be watching tons of sports in 16:9, which of course would be smaller then 105wide, thinking it will be approx 80 wide by 45 high. Which would be around 92" diagonal.
If I just hit that powerball last week none of this would of been a concern of mine...
