Just to let you all know I have been chomping at the bit to start this project and have now had the go ahead from the boss (or my wife). We have a detached garage with power sitting off the side of the garden which for the last two years has had nothing but 'shed stuff' in it. My aim is to complete it before Xmas ( not long when its just me and a couple of mates doing odd weekends). My aim is sub £1000.00 for the build and decoration, so I will post £'s progress as we go. I already have the following low-medium range hardware: Plus Piano 3200 projector - Great value DSP unit. Sony DVD - Multiregion, no macro - £600 new however now 5 years old but I love it. X box - You have to experience Gotham 2 on an eight foot screen!!! Mission Speakers - Good value 5 speaker package M Short Sub - Lovely piece of rumbling bass Speaker wire - All Monster of course! I am having a dividing wall between the garage door and the room behind to allow me some front storage space. All the other old stuff will go in the eves once it has been boarded out. I would be interested on peoples lighting thoughts as I am inclined to go for 8 spots, 4 down each side on a dimmer by the door. Pictures to follow after this weekend!
