    Me, the wife and our 2 year old son moved to austraila one year ago next week, since march 2004 my home theater gear has been packed up in boxes, NOT ANYMORE :)
    13 days ago i stated to convert the garage and today its finished :) it cost a little bit over $2000 and i managed to do all the work myself, some things i'd done for the first time like the coving and plaster boarding but some how i pulled it off and we love it.
    as you can see i dont have a projector yet but all the wiring is in place for one, thats next on the to-buy list.
    The first pic was taken 13 days ago on march 17
    next two taken yesterday march 29.

    Looks awesome! And 13 days is just unreal! It's taken nearly 6 weeks for me to complete my garage conversion!

    thanks for your comments guys, out of those 13 days 4 were weekend days and i did take 5 days annual leave so i managed to put in 9 full 14 hour days, it was hard work but well worth the effort :) can't wait to get my projector now.

    Good looking room and great amount of space. Are the Aussies big into HC or do they think you're a mad Pom? Good work.

    Looks Great. how did you set up the wiring for the projector? Im guessing that the white bit on the roof that looks like a smoke alarm is some kind of cover? Im building soon and will need to do the same.

    Wow nice room,
    I just got mine re done from a bar style which I didn't like to a much more modern style that I do. I'm glad to see your lovely mac sitting in the corner too (mac fangirl here) and I have one in my HC room also hehe
