After reading AVS for so many years, it's finally my turn! I think my original account was registered back to 2007 or so, but got deleted when the forum switched software. Anyways, wife and I just moved into a new house and I finally get my "dedicated" room. I say "dedicated" because it's currently my office (work remote), but I'll be shoving myself into the closet for this to happen.
WAF isn't really any issue. She really doesn't care what I do, because she knows I'm pickier than she is when it comes to how something looks. All of my stuff was in our living room at the old house and she just thought it was ridiculous, but didn't mind it. The big kicker is we are still renting the house. We can buy it if we want to, but for now we are just renting it. So no IB setups quite yet. However, that's not going to stop me from running wires through the attic and crawl space to get what I need, where I need it. Im also going to be treating the front wall and plugging a window, but that will just be another fake wall that sits in front of the drywall. Accoustic Panels will also be hung... I can fill holes like a champ if it comes to it.

We are shopping for new living room furniture currently so for now, I'll use that and then get the real chairs in the future. The servers and audio equipment will be placed in our master bedroom closet (other side of the wall behind my office chair) and ran through the crawl space/attic.
