It's a great motivator to get things in tip-top shape. I was in awe of many of the builds by my guests. I mean Jeff's is legendary, Bill and Mark's are epic, and Michael...I mean he sets the bar really high for woodworking and LFE.
I was also quite happy to have two folks who are working on their build or in planning. I was into my build for over a year before I had even stepped foot into a real home theater for the first time. I visited Bill's, then Mark's then CurtisG's. With each visit, I've learned a great deal and found things that I wanted to emmulate in my build. For instance, Bill's place is where I found fabric treatments and motarized recliners. Mark's place had a great bar and killer proportions. MMMKAM's place had a 2.35:1 screen and great colors. Biggy's...well, I'd have to gut my setup to come close to Biggy, CurtisG's, or Michael's killer theaters.
I'm really happy with how the build turned out, and by the friends that I have made along the way. It also felt good to give a little back and help others along the way.
So plan the build party and engage the local HT community! It's a great motivator.
