    So I'm going to put in a projector and screen in a multi-purpose room in the basement. I had originally planned on putting the components off in a corner of the basement, which would be about a 50' cable run from the receiver to the projector. As I read more, this may be problematic? I could...

    After recently joining this website to acquire information about home theater equipment, figured I'd share my project. This basement renovation started back in march, and is about 70% done. Here's how it looked from the start: Got everything cleaned up and started with a clean slate...

    After several years of sitting in an unfinished basement staring at concrete walls, I finally have something worthy enough to post on this great forum. I certainly used this forum during the 3 years of planning and have to admit to stealing several great ideas. Certainly not as elaborate as...

    Swerve's Media Room and Bar build After reading tons here, I think it's best I start a thread to get answers to questions that I'll have in order to make sure I don't make any mistakes along the way that I'll regret later. It's amazing the wealth of information, sound advice, and support there...

    Hello all! I bought my house about 6 months ago. The people that lived there for the last twelve years didn't do anything to it the whole time because they were 1. Old 2. Tight Asses. My first project was going to remodel the kitchen, but since I'm getting married in 9 months, it was put on...

    I am in the process of getting the design down for my basement bar. I am planning on doing the base of the bar and trim in the stain color "twilight" that we have in our upstairs. This picture isn't a perfect example but best one I had on hand. It's very dark but not black. My main problem is...

    Just wanted to start a thread to document our basement transition. The basement was already finished when we moved in about two years ago so we won't be doing anything other than painting and putting "stuff" in it for the time being. We had been using this space partly as storage and partly for...

    Hello AVS Forums… It’s been a couple of years since I’ve posted but I’ve been reading these forums for quite some time now. It is just a wealth of information and I am thankful for stumbling upon it a few years back. I am posting today because I am FINALLY in the PLANNING stages for fixing up...
  9. What's Your System Configuration
    Updated 8/21/14: Now that I've finally gotten most of this room roughed out, I figured it was time to post some pictures and some basic info. As my wife can attest, this room is a constantly evolving projecting - the setup is subject to change at any given day, haha. This is the 3rd...

    I've been planning to finish my basement for the last two years, and now, finally construction has begun! I want to be able to have a home theater, pool table, poker table, bathroom, and bar. And I don't have a ton of space, but I think I found a layout that will work. The theater room will...

    Hey all, I've been perusing the forum for a while now, and I just moved into a house which can accommodate a decent theater. The basement is mostly unfinished, with 7' 6" ceilings; I know, lower than I'd like. Anyway, here is a picture of the current layout. The room in the top left is the...

    Intro: (updated 3/13/17) In my first apartment I put together my first surround sound setup and was blown away - I knew from that point on that I was eventually going to have a home theater. In 2010 my wife and I found the perfect house - and it happened to have a room in the basement that we...

     It has been about a year and a half since I started this project and I have finally gotten around to starting a thread. I wanted to make sure to contribute a thread and my experiences to this great forum that inspired me to do this project in the first place and for giving me so many ideas to...

     Hello. I am in the early stages of planning an addition to my house. We have met with several architects and we will be hiring one in the next week or so. The best part about the addition (to me) is that I will be able to convert the basement into whatever I want! The finished area will be a...

    This project was started back in March 09. I visit this forum often for ideas so I figured I would post pictures of the timeline of my project up to this point. Enjoy! I will post more of the bar finishing process.

    The finishing of my basement began back in March of this year (2009). I hired a professional to do the bulk of the work, but I left the bar for myself to complete. This forum provided me with all the inspiration I needed to decide to tackle the project myself! Anyways, I thought I'd share some...
  20. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    I stated this project about 2-1/2 years ago and just had the carpet installed last week. My build includes theater, bar, fireplace/sitting area, game room and bathroom. I still have quite a few things left to do, but thought I'd start my own thread since I've received a few PMs asking for more...
