HGTV - Rate My Space

We put our bathroom pictures on, and so far we are listed in the top ratings group. Its pretty satisfying to get postive ratings and comments on the work we have done.

Home Theater

Well, I am getting back to posting on this blog. I have been concentrating on our kitchen remodel blog for the past few months.

Our old projector died a slow death by shifting to only showing green images. From what I have read, this can happen to LCD projectors if you use them too many hours at a time.

We now have a Sharp XR-10X DLP Projector, which is fully HD (1080i) compatible. It was great for watching the NCAA Final Four in HD. Even with a lot of light in the room, you can see we still get a very strong image. Cost was $750 from Costco online.

Here is a picture of our "theater room". The projected image is about 7 feet wide.

The room is not remodeled yet, and we are projecting on the wall, but it still makes a great theater at 20' wide and 38' deep. We have remodel plan for this room, but it comes after a number of other items.

I needed to mount the projector behind the beam, so I used a flat-screen TV mount, which can hold up to 80 pounds. This cost about $80. To buy the mount, plus the wall mount adaptor put a projector mount at over $120.
