After of several weeks of planning for components and room deisng, I’m actually starting the project. I’ve been wanting to convert the exercise room in our basement to a home theater since the first time I walked through the house 6 months ago. Nicole is in full support, although she initially wanted it to be her art studio. She likes home theater quite a bit and will be helping with the construction. Our frined Kyle is helping out is well. His real job is a home builder so his insight and assistance will be invaluable.
I went to Home Depot and purchased the lumber needed for the platform in the rear of the room for the second row of seats. Getting it loaded in the (borrowed) truck and then getting it into the basement was more difficult than doing the initial build steps. I didn’t get much else accomplished.
