Default Small theater/game room...

Hey guys...
Lots of research, thought and inner debate on if I wanted to go there.
I decided to go there!
Nothing major, just a budget build.

I'm in process of converting my office to a theater/game room.
It's a small room. Like 10x15x9 small.
So I spent today moving things and consolidating and downsizing my office stuffs and moved it to my bedroom. No small task but it's about 90% moved.
Just a few details and my office will be relocated.

I already own a good deal of the components to get started and I have ordered wiring, an Optoma 142X and a 100" powered drop screen.

The pics are of the new room in work.
My next biggest job is to relocate the 1 or 2 BR's in my collection and downsize the shelving. Also not a small task.

I will have a 7.2 set up (non-atmos), Infinity F/R bookshelf's, Polk center for now, and 4 Sony surrounds from a leftover project. For bass I have 2 ea Velodyne 10" powered woofs.

I'll do blackout treatments and seating later as I am still looking at options. Probably 2 recliners ans 2 bean bags for seating.
Also some ambient LED lighting.
I'm always scanning Craigslist....

A few pics to get an idea of what I'm working with:

Yeah it's fun.
It's not exactly Cinema Paradiso but it'll do what I want it to.
It'll be a continual work in progress too as I have lots to do but will work on it as I use it.

Did a sound check of my L/C/R/subs last night - lots of standing waves but it was just a quickie test

Updates:
Blackout panels are up.
Screen and Optoma arrived...screen up and works as advertised - takes about 10 seconds to drop. Power cord hidden behind blackouts.
2 remotes for the screen.
More work to be done yet.

Hey there hifiHigh, just seeing the screen up and working has too make you feel better about the HT build. It's a slow process, but will be worth it . Keep the pic's coming and Good Luck .

Thanks. You're right.
More coming. I have the projector up and most of the wiring in place.
I have been fiddling with the set-up...the picture is pretty freakin' good for what it cost. 459.00 for the Optoma (refurb/3 yr warranty) and 109.00 shipped for the screen.

Still waiting on a couple of HDMI cables and I can start final assy....

Quick update:
Still working on it...gotta tuck and run wiring. Seating will come later as I'm still looking for the 'right combination'. LED Lighting on the way along with a dimmer.
The pics are rough, really rough, but give you an idea. The real world video is 10x better then the pics and impressive for the price I paid.
Can't wait for football!!
See my homemade speaker stands made from scraps and leftovers
Edit: the 2 Velodyne subs are impressive. Being such a small room and corner loading helps too but the depth and impact on certain films will move you!

Pictures suck but it doesn't matter - they wouldn't do it justice anyway.
Still in work in progress but that's part of the fun!

What matter's is what it look's like too you, in your HT. The bottom line is that you are so close to having this project completed. Good luck, and keep the picture's coming .

Few updates:
Picked up my seating on sale and upgraded to Klipsch L/C/R's.
The R-15 Ref L/R's were on sale for 124.00 and I picked up the R-25C center from a BR.com member for 160.00... (thanks dude!).
Still work in progress - I want to put in dim-able theater type LED lighting along the diameter of the baseboards and add more acoustic paneling...those are low priority for now though.
