Gosh, I have been convincing wife to let us move to Houston, being fed up of the snow and wind. 5 months in Chicago is sleepy, half year wasted, high sales tax, high property tax, high insurance premiums, depleting downtown and job opportunities, extra expensive houses.. where as Houston is the contrary. for a 300-400K you can get a semi-mansion house.... plus low property taxes.
She looks almost convinced, but since few months i am a little bit put off... Buy a house and building a dedicated theater into it is one of my prime agenda's (which is not wife's)
and the fact that in Texas you cannot have a basement.. i wonder how a decent theater build would turn out on the main floor plan even if effective soundraps and bass traps are installed.
