A very much long awaited dream will come true for me very soon. I will be builiding my AV / Home Theatre room!!! Yay for me rclxms.gif . After almost a year of designing and redesigning the room, I finalised the designs about 2 months ago. The contractor just finished fabricating the parts, cabinets dewign accents and started bringing them over to my house.

But first here is a glimpse of my AV Room before the build..... actually I have the electrician doing some wiring already.

The room is situated on the 3rd floor, has a funny shape, but it is generally rectangular staircase (see black grille) and an access door on one side. The staircase picutred leads to the 2nd floor. The door leads to a flat roof where I place the water tanks, air conditioner compressors and water filters for the house. The wall with a lamp will be where the screen will eventually be placed.

This next picture shows the other end of the wall where the screen will be placed.

This picture is of the rear of the room. I will be placing build in display cabinets here and the Epson projector will be housed at the top of the cabinet just below the Air Conditioner. I have a dedicated fuse box for the AV Room. Notice the black grille, thats part of the staircase that leads to the 2nd floor.

A closer look at the wiring mess... The suqare box you see in tis picture is my DIY 12" servo subwoofer.

And the contractor brought the fabric wall panels... somehow the reds did not turn out as dark as I had wanted..

I'll take more pictures and go thru the build as the contractor starts work tomorrow. I'll keep a close eye on them to make sure everything is doen up to my standards.

Please don't be jealous of this. An AV room is possible for every kind of budget. As for me, I do not know the final price of the build yet. The contractor is actually my wife's Uncle, and he only charges us material and labour. I guess I am lucky I don't have to worry about sky high markups.

So after Day 1.... all I can say is that progress is slow. Only major acomplishment is to get the ceiling section of screen area up plus some wall panelling.

Ceiling Section was a real tough one to mount. It is really heavy and required 6 workers to mount. The worker had to crawl into the ceiling to secure the section to the ceiling trusses.

The build is coming along nicely. Display cabinets are going up for it as we speak. The screen mountings will be up later today, minus the screen. I STILL have not gotten around to selecting a screen yet.

The artificial floor that will cover staircase access area will probably go up tomorrow. Why an artificial floor? So that that area can be used as well and not end up as just empty space.

I have taken many pictures of the build as it proceeds, but I cannot download the pics, as my PC seems to be acting up and refusing to recognise the camera. Will try to resolve this asap so that I can post the pics.

The size of the area is roughly 4.5 x 5.5m. But its in a funny rectangular shape. I am trying to use all the available area as best I can. See attached sketch but note that it is not drawn to scale.
