My first HT project, Had a big basement 1300sqft that looked right out of the 70's, that needed to remodel and refresh. So built an office, extra bedroom and a HT (still under construction)
BenQ W1070 Projector as advised by AV_Integrated of this forum! (Thanks again)
Custom 122" DIY Screen 107.5" X 61" X 3/4" MDF painted with Sherwin-Williams paint as advised in the Painting the Perfect Screen for $100
Sony Surround Sound
JVC Speakers and Sub woofer
The room it's self will be the HT + Bar + Pool table

Note: The screen images were displayed on primed sheetrock, No calibration had been done yet!

Work in progress and will follow up with more pics, Thanks Everyone for all the great info on the forum and projector central site!

Okay I finished the HT lash march and have been enjoying my area so much haven't updated you folks so here are some updated finished pics.

Thats a cool room! I like the idea that you have a bar and a Pool Table in there as well. Impressive that there stil is enough space to create a real theater feeling. Oh and I love the stairs they look awesome!
