The pictures turned out really dark since I don't have enough lighting in there but I'll have to see about bringing in some high power light when I'm ready for the final photo shoot:) The room is 23 feet long by 12 feet wide and is 7 feet to the drop down ceiling tiles (another 7" or so above that filled with fiberglass insulation) The top half of the walls are covered in an indoor/outdoor carpet that was glued on with carpet glue. The bottom half of the room (36" to be exact) is covered with 1" thick layer of Johns Mansville Permacote Linacoustic which is very similar to Insushield. There are four wall scones installed that I picked up from Ikea and are controlled by a lutron spacer. The gear will consit of a 7.1 speaker congif using Magnepan speakers powered by a Musical Fidelity amp & HK PA5800 5 channel amp. I'm waiting for the outlaw pre amp for my processing. Anyway onto the pics so far.

The after pics...


Sorry this is so grainy...too dark to take a good pic. You can see the newly painted back maggies though which when then lights are off and the TV's on are totally invisible. For now the VCR and DVD player are connected directly into the back of the TV.

Here's we are looking at the back of the room. Sorry about the mess on the futon...those are the CD jewel cases from the draws and the black mass are the curtains that will go behind the TV and speakers.

Here were are looking at the gear rack. On the left you can barely see the three draws that will house my DVD collection. On top on these draws the CD jukebox and turntable will sit. On the other side there will be the pre amp, DVD player, VCR and the DSS. I think I'll build another three draws below that to hold CD jewel cases and odds and sods etc.

Andrew, the room looks great. You may want to consider dropping the picture size down to at least 640X480. They take a long time to load on a regular phone hook-up at 800X600.

Those aren't my kids they are the previous owners:) I took that pic when we were first looking at the house this winter. We've only been in the new house for 5 weeks so we've been busy with this project and repainting the living room and hallway. The next challenge will be to horizontally wall mount a pair of maggies for side duty...
