Built my first Home Theater in our previous home almost 20 years ago (yea, the analog days of Dolby Pro-Logic). Finally, got around to building the second one.
This too was my own design; have not seen one quite like it (most of them extend to the floor like a stage).
I have not yet been able to get a good photo. The auto focus function of the camera seems to get confused by the gray screen.
The lower portion of the screen surround unit is solid oak. Very long and heavy. Took me awhile to figure out how to mount it to the wall. Ended up using a hidden french cleat.
Installed hidden LED strip lights on the top and bottom of the screen surround. Surprising inexpensive if you are willing to get friendly with a soldering iron. Looks great when the lights are dimmed to watch a movie.
Still need some hardware and some cabinetry on top of the bar. All the electronics is hidden behind in the media closet on the right.
I learned that they call these things pilasters (not columns).
Update 9/2/13: Finally finished the upper cabinets and installed the travertine backsplash. I be done….
