The Home Theatre Project is underway. I'll be converting the basement into a home theatre. Here is the before anything has changed photo prior to having had the kids clean up the mess they tend to leave down there.
I have already ordered the receiver/speaker system, it should arrive tomorrow. Its regular price is about 1000$ and right now it has a 100$ discount. On top of that I had 150$ of gift cards for Best Buy and so the final price after the discount, gift cards and sales tax is 885.68$.
The projector I will be buying is on sale at Costco as of March 16th, so in a couple of weeks I'll be ordering that. Finally, there is the screen and I am thinking to go as inexpensive as possible at the outset to hold off that expense until later.
