What a fun read. Just spent the past few days going through your thread in my spare time. I'm over in Sandy Springs, so it was nice to see how you did things, and also find out about availability for stuff in Atlanta. I plan on starting my theater sometime later this year, so I'm 100% in planning mode. Gotta get the financial committee to agree to let me proceed before any actual work starts. She did let me build a wine cellar though, which I just finished up!
Have been trying to learn sketch up and just getting my head wrapped around all I want to do down there. Considering it took me 4 months to build the wine cellar, I'd guess the basement should take me, ohhh, friggin' FOREVER! ;-) OCD is my enemy...
Need to take some finished pics.. these don't have the base or crown. I didn't build the racks (like some other enterprising fellas), but I did build the cabinets below, as well as everything else about the room.
