Mark and Randy thanks for the word of encouragement. It keeps me going instead of just turning off the lights and watching another movie. It's hard to believe that I hung my projector 25 months ago and I'm still not done with the Room.

What they say about never Hanging the projector until you are done is so true. The rule should be Never BUY the stupid thing until the room is done.

I don't mean to be over the top with the praise but when this is done it will put most of the stuff I have seen in Audio Video Interiors magazine to shame.

You should submit this to some different AV mags. This is nicer than the work that pros do.

I totally agree! Big's theater is amazing.

At the risk of resurrecting the wrong thread...I don't think I've seen the final product. Big, are you still watching DIY Network?

But really, I noticed there isn't a door at the bottom of those stairs. How is the sound isolation on the main floor? Assuming you have a second floor, can you hear anything up there?

I too have been hoping to see photos of the finished product. I shared this thread with my wife letting her know that in our next house will have a bar like this in the rear of the theater. Her response, "A BAR? Our kitchen isn't even that nice." She'll get over it.

OK,OK, I have some progress worth showing but I'm still not done.

In the past few days I've reached 2 milestones. I put my 4th bulb in my projector and I got the upholstery back for the back bar.

If you remember this is the concept I had in mind:




This is how it turned out with the upholstery. I found a guy who does restaurant booths to do this for me. The front panel is just resting on a couple rolls of paper towels until I screw it into place. I ended up changing the design of the ends to look more like the arms of the Berkline 099s.

Damn! You take your time! But the end result is simply amazing!

It's a pretty tough vinyl. I think my concern is High heels.

This will be the finest home theater ever created.

Very Very elegant design. This lobby / bar is one of the best that I have seen on this forum! I guess taking your time actually pays off! Keep up the good work.

If people haven't seen it already, you should also take a look at Big's screenwall thread.

I love that carpet. If I ever get there it is on my shortlist, even though there is only one Masland dealer in my area (god knows what the pricing would be).

What a beautiful layout!!
Very nice work Big. You are an inspiration to all. I can just imagine when people come down those stares and see that bar. What a statement, then when they see the rest of the basement. Your gonna have trouble getting people to leave!!
Do you have plans for a meet when all is complete?

post #86 of 1618

post #87 of 1618
Blue pearl granite from Norway.





I did give some thought to stainless
