I figured this was as good a place as any to document the changes we're making in our living room. It'll serve as a good spot to keep my thoughts in one place and hopefully an expert or two could chime in with thoughts/suggestions.


Our old/current setup was a 56" DLP on a typical glass TV stand stuffed into the corner of the room. With everything open it was an ugly mess. Last week we took delivery of a Samsung 59D7000 plasma that is really a stunning TV. Putting that up on the glass stand just won't do it justice, so the plan is to enclose the corner where the TV sits, build in custom cabinets, and hang the TV on a ultra slim mount.


Our To-Do list, so far:
  1. Frame out new wall
  2. Frame out cabinets
  3. Reroute HVAC vent
  4. Install cooling fan
  5. Drywall
  6. Build cabinets + drawer
  7. Stain cabinets + drawer
  8. Install cabinets + drawer
  9. Finish drywall
  10. Hang TV


We still have a couple of things up for debate, design-wise.


How to mount the center channel?

Location of cooling fan (dedicated vents or blowing thru doors enough)?

Need intake and exhaust fans?

Spent some time last night making a custom grate for the HVAC and framed out the cabinets. My brother is pretty good with the router.
