Funny that you should mention inspiration, since when yours was featured as an HT of the Month, it matched the kind of minimalist ideal for what I wanted to do, and it help guide me in some of the decisions I've made.
Until I do start a build thread, I'll leave a small preview here. The room is roughly 17' x 26' x 10' although it's only 9' tall in the back half, due to the riser. Our house is ICF (Insulated Concrete Form), so all four walls are 6" think concrete with 2.5" of insulation and 1/2" drywall. The ceiling is 3/4" OSB and then 5/8" drywall. I did all of the low voltage wiring myself, and it's setup for 7.1.4.
The attached pictures are the general layout of the room, large black squares are the seven seats (Costco Pulaski recliners), and the smaller black squares are rough speaker placements which will be fine tuned to the room. The screen will be 135" 16:9. This is kind of going version .5, with an eventual plan to go with an acoustically transparent screen and 4K projector, but funds dictate that I reuse some old equipment for now.
Some family issues have halted all work for now, but I hope to get back to it sometime this year.
