Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

There was a 40% off sale at Joann Fabric and I was able to get enough speaker cloth for just $30! And it looks fine to me, even better when the entire wall and frame is painted black. Can the same cloth be used for wall treatments/panels? I'm guessing it can.. Now it's just a case of making the panels. I'm off to HD to pick up a miter box and some furring strips to get the ball rolling. Have about 9 panels to make just for the wall!

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

I've been thinking about seating in general and would love to hear the thoughts of others on this. My intention was always to have the front row Berkline recliners with the only problem that it can seat 3 (I only have 9' width available). On the back row riser I've got my desk which only takes up about 55" width. Remember, this is going to be part HT part work area (I'm a photographer and this is where I'll be doing editing etc.). So on the back row I was thinking of putting two classic theater seats so if my kids want a few friends over the room can seat a max of 5 people. Then I saw these chairs on Craigslist and they are in excellent condition and the seller wants $75 for both. Should even fit in with my color scheme (I'm going theater red/black/gray).



What do you think?

Just a quick update. Room has been primed and ceiling painted and first coat on lower part of wall. Tonight we finish the paint entirely. Then it's a week off and we resume trim the following weekend followed by carpet. So we're about 2 weeks from finishing now.

Excitng! Have you thought which movie you want to screen first? Remember to leave a 3/8" gap below your baseboard trim to tuck the carpet under

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

If I'm not mistaken, won't you have to bolt those chairs to the floor? It looks nice though.

Yeah, that's why I gave up on them in the end. Going to go with some nice recliners both front and back.

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

I went with bean bags for the kids. Not exactly "home theater" or whatever but I have to say that they are REALLY comfortable. Got them f4rom a lady on the east coast that makes them to order. Very nice quality!!!

We used bean bags in front of the first row for a long time when our kids were at home. Those were the ones their friends always fought to get rather than a nice, comfy recliner...

Great this is what I was thinking about doing for the kids instead of getting a couch. Two bean bags and a couple of nice chairs, thanks for the link.
