The Blank Slate Cinema and MacGillivray Pub Build

A photographic record of my home theater and bar build

Description

I will eventually create a finalized showcase that includes the finished product of nearly 5 years worth of work along with the design ideas and inspirations I used to create this space.
Being that both my wife and I work from home and spend the vast majority of time here, we really wanted a space that we didn't quickly become bored with. I think that we have accomplished that.
We also wanted a space that we could share with our friends and family as we enjoy entertaining and want our guests to feel as at home as possible.

So without further adieu, I give you the pictorial history of The Blank Slate Cinema and The MacGillivray Pub.

(Edit: Revised images and order. The bar, my office and storage room will be the first series of pictures followed by the theater progress in a subsequent reply).

Starting with the bar area how it looked about 2 months after we moved in. I had the first wall of my office up before the first week in the new house was up. We needed that for the dedicated 100 amp drop to get installed that following week.

I will be adding more photos as work allows. Been a busy few months since the flood in June and a work re-org in July.

Did a walkthrough of the theater and the equipment rack.
Be gentle on the cable management. I am still finalizing things in the rack.

Beautiful! I wouldn't sweat the cables... that's what doors are for ;-)

I like your Disc storage DIY. That's exactly what I built. Way better than expensive storage platforms.

Nice build ... Impressive, most impressive. Now enjoy your work :popcorn:
I'm renovating at the moment and my cable management is way messier than yours!

Ryan’s just trying to steal the thunder for the professionally produced video I’m putting together.

Well...I may or may not have made some significant upgrade purchases over the last couple of weeks. ‍♂️
 
:greengrin:

OK...fine...
I picked up a JVC NX7 and a Marantz AV8805.
Upgrades that weren't originally planned for a while down the road but ended up happening because I was presented a too good to pass up deal for the projector.

The NX7 is the bomb! You definitely need to pair it with a UB820 or UB9000 to take advantage of the tone mapping... the resulting 4K images are phenomenal!
