Well I'm impressed. Lowes contractors have come and gone, putting down the carpet in roughly 4hrs.

Yeah it was, here we have several places for reclaimed construction material. There are also 2 Habitat for Humanity stores the take in donated supplies and it blows my mind the amount of brand new stock in everything from flooring to doors etc... thats on sale there for 20% of regular price. I actually got all my baseboards there for about $40...

I was able to get a few things moved downstairs while I wait to get the baseboards and trim done. I also put in place my old movie stands where I'll be building shelving in the mean time they'll serve there purpose however I'll have to get on it cause I've ran out of room for new movie purchases.

Got around to putting some posters in there frames. Got a Free Jack and the giant slayer at a Pre-screening last week. Got several extra posters that I slipped in to the frame behind for safe keeping. Bet you can guess which poster my girlfriend picked.

The Paint has added a lot. Theres a bunch of touch up I need to do. Lots of little misc. things that I'm taking one day at a time but make a difference. The carpet is what has really made it feel more finished.

I'm waiting on a new Optoma HD20 which is was what I have left in my budget to replace my benq ms612st 800x600 projector. I look forward to the step up on image quality as the front rows are about 9' eye level from the screen; I will keep my fingers crossed as to not be one of the people that have had issues with their unit.

I've also been thinking about making the screen into a fixed unit as it has some slight waves in the material as it sits loose pulled down; there's a good chance that it'll get to me over time.

Also grabbed some curtains today to replace my trusty Uhaul window covering

Thanks, Still have lots of little things to do when I have time and money, Had my dog in at the vet and on the weekend and was hit with a $400 bill and he needs some other things done that are age related that will run another $1400 so anything outstanding like the drybar and a few extras will be waiting a few months probably.. Already have the baseboards in the garage so I can keep trekking a bit. ..

I did however get my Projector (Optoma HD20) in the mail and will have to check the forum for optimal settings. I had it all hooked up and when I came home it was just showing green. I changed a couple hdmi cables but I think the real culprit is that I had pushed the receiver to far back and the cables got pushed down just enough to disrupt my feed. I'll have to look into a solution for that as I have it sitting out a couple inches now.

But I did a quick test of a Avatar Blu-ray and Transformers HD-DVD, I have a 100" Elite Screen. I have it on its Factory Cinema setting with Ambient lighting and still a little spill from the basement window. I'll have to double up on the curtain as it seems to be to thin of a material.

Great screenshots! Will you be running the cables in the walls?

lol... The cables are all ran threw the walls. . The HDMI is what I think you asking about.... Originally the cable was perfect! My other projector was a short throw and so I measured it out for placement. Now I have this one and it's back 5' from where I had the other mounted. To hide the cable the only option I can think of is maybe a slim white rail that I've seen for some flat screen applications.

Chopped up my pull down screen in an attempt to make a fixed frame screen. Still need to hit the fabric store to check out something for the frame. I was second guessing it while slicing it up lol.... but so far so good....
