A college student built this impressive budget home cinema in the basement. Here's a step by step instruction of how he did it.
He picked a spot in the basement and walled it off with curtains.
Then he built the screen. He took some ply wood and painted it white and then mounted it onto a frame.
He mounted it to a pair of beams running through the ceiling, The rope was rated to hold 120lb and the wood weighed 30lb.
The finished product so far; a very decent home projection system. But he wasn’t done yet.
He added a double decker couch to accommodate his viewers. He placed the couch onto an inverted bed frame.
With some leftover eye-hole screws he added a hammock, and he stress tested to up to 220lb.
To add a touch of “class” he threw a black curtain up behind the screen.
He installed a surround sound setup.
Hiding the front left and front right speakers underneath the screen frame. Hidden from sight.
He added a lit path to help his viewers find their way from the stairs to the theater.
He added a projection station by using a board and more rope. To get the angle right took some time.
He added a little mood lighting with a remote controlled LED light.
