Just absolutely gorgeous! I envy your skill at trimming out a room. One thing for sure, I am not a trimmer, but I gave it my best shot with the Ye cinema. What technique did you use for sound isolation?

With the exception of some optional treatments & tweaks, the Palace is finished. Thanks to everyone in the forum, you made the 16 month project easier. Credits at bottom of message. More pictures in my AVS gallery. I also have six pages of design and construction pictures at my web site.
Special thanks goes to Greywolf & MikeWh for the countless woodworking tips and tricks. You made me a better craftsman.
NittanyLionDen (my next door neighbor), thanks for the extra pair of hands, countless trips to Home Depot and helping me resolve some of the WAF issues.

WAF issues & her thoughts before and after? My wife was always on board with the theater -- she knows that it is futile to try and stop me. This is our third theater and in our last two homes it really helped sell the house. The WAF issues were more about decorating. We did not see eye to eye on the carpet. She really liked a floral print that we saw. It was indeed beautiful and standing alone, probably more handsome than what we eventually went with. But, it wasn't consistent with the mood/feel that I was trying to create. Another acceptance issue has been trying to get her to accept the fact that she is going to make swags to go above the screen. She's mocked up 1 (of 7) and it looks awesome, but 6 more still need to be done and I wouldn't exactly describe her as being interested in doing them. I thought of doing them myself, but I'm more of the "New Yankee Workshop" type of person than I am a "Martha Stuart" type. At this point, she does like the theater, but I think the members of this forum probably appreciate it more fully.

Those are Irwin Marquee chairs and they are a great deal for the money.
What width are those? They come in 19, 20, 21, and 22"...

Wow! What a great theater! I am feverishly working to complete mine. Carpet comes Thursday!!!
Yes I have the same seats also purchased from Custom Ken 2 years ago and stored until now. Mine are blue. I can't beleive he passed away. That is too bad. I was thinking about giving him a call to ask him again about making stands for the chairs since I don't want to bolt the first row to the floor. I am saddened to hear this. Do you know how long ago it happened and are they still in business? Their seats are really the best value. I think mine are new, but might be refurbished, they cost me under a grand for 10 shipped, I got a good deal since I think the blue was not popular.

What color of red is that? and who makes it? It's the exact color I'm looking for, for my theater.
