I've finally begun building Frogtown Hollow Theatre. After two years of using the basement as a mixed-use room, with toys everywhere, and horrid white walls, I recently started the build. I'll try to keep this post updated with the latest pictures. Here it is with new a new floor.
I'm beginning to build my basement home theater. I've decided to call it Frogtown Hollow after the Muppet movie "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas", one of my all time favorite Christmas movies. Two reasons for this. One, it's in a basement, hence "Hollow". Two, I used to raise poisonous dart frogs in it. I'm currently on hiatus with the frogs, but I'm hoping to get back to them in the near future.
I have an Optoma HD66, LG LHB336 blu-ray HTIB, an Acer Revo 1600 HTPC using XBMC, various NAS storage devices, and a Logitech Harmony 650. Currently, I have it loosely installed and working but am about to begin remodeling the basement into a theater. I'll post the "before" pics soon.
For now, I'm still researching out wall colors, the best method to hide wiring (I can't convince my wife to let me dig into walls... yet), and lighting. I just wanted to introduce myself and setup the thread for now.
I'm also looking around for inspiration for a "Frogtown Hollow" logo.
