    Thanks guys. :thumbsup:
    managed to get some more done, skirting all done now and even managed to get some of those little finishing touches done, as you can tell i am one of those guys that doesn't like wires on show so that ps2 is really annoying me.
    any suggestions? i was going to put another piece of board in front of the power supply so it will be hidden

    Thanks for the reply . Looks just the job . Can you tell me how you attached the projector to the bracket did the holes in the plate line up with the projector base or have you had to get around this ? thanks

    It does look great, I can't quite work out the structure of the screen wall. The screen is in an recess, right? Was the room originally that shape or did you build it?

    yeah the room was originally that shape, i thought it would be ideal for the screen, the screen is just plasterboard stuck on at the back of the recess, if you look here it is more noticeable

    Hi

    Nice job! Looking very nice indeed.

    Whats the height from floor to ceiling? i`m thinking of converting my cellar but the ceiling in mine is only six feet high.

    Kitch, if you have it converted it is definitely worth getting the floor dug out, depending on how you tank it or dry line it then it will probably be best to do this anyway. I only had about 6ft headroom but with the original floor dug out and a new one laid i now have about 6.5ft which is ideal, for me anyway.

    Thats exactly what i was thinking.
    I dont move in for another 4 weeks, so i`ve got plenty of planning time.

    I may need a bit of advice nearer the time :lease:

    Cheers
