Until I am able to come up with one that really stands out this build will have no name.
Please feel free to comment on any part of the build if you have any ideas or suggestions, this is my first build and I would appreciate any input. this thread has been a long time coming but between my work and being a new homeowner and all that comes with that i have been hard pressed to find time.
Like many on here I have been using this forum for quite some time to answer my many questions regarding what it takes to build a home theater. I would like to thank the many people on this forum from whom i have stolen/borrowed countless ideas to use in my own build. What I did not expect is that the deeper I dove in the more questions I ultimately had. However this forum has not disappointed, I have been able to find answers to questions I didn't even know I had.
I would like to extend a big thank you to a couple members who have given so much to not only my build but the entire avs community.
-countless hours helping with ideas on the phone and over email not to mention the endless topics in both the diy screens forum and the dedicated HT build forum as well I cannot thank you enough
-I may not have had much direct interaction with you but I can't even put a guess on how many of your posts I have carefully read to answer questions I have had during my build. Numerous google and forum searches have brought up your posts.
offered me some advice when i was looking at going the DIY route for my speakers and I am very glad I did
the way you hid your attic entry is awesome and I plan to use a similar method
- thanks for the speaker kits these things sound amazing and the satisfaction from knowing i built my own is unexplainable.
the VBSS looks amazing and I have all the parts to make my own except the amp. I am super excited for this part of the build to come.
So many others have helped along the way as well

Last September I set out to find a home here in Alaska that would suit my needs (make the girlfriend happy) and desires (room to build a dedicated HT). what we found was a well laid out single story home with what started as a 2 car garage and a carport. Half of the garage was converted into what I believe was a laundry/workout room with french door replacing the garage door, making a good start to the HT. The rest of the house is unimportant to me but the girlfriend loves it so it is a win win. I get the garage, carport and the room that will be the HT and she gets the 3 bedrooms and living room, perfect.
