Hey everyone,  I have been visiting this forum for a few days.  I have a Da-lite 9' diag. portable screen I use for my business and a 12' diag. screen mounted on the ceiling in my living room I use for business and pleasure.   After reading about other peoples posts I'm ready for my outdoor screen, but my wife is not.  With a screen size of 18' x 10' diagonal measurement of 20' I'm getting a permit for the project.  The screen will be built from treated lumber and faced with the parkland plastic,  the seem should be invisible much like on a bathroom wall.  This is a permanent installation and in Ohio only enjoyable for 5-6 months.  The big party is August 5th so I will post pics after that.  Wish me luck

Welcome to the forum!

I agree with cheftom! Since we've been doing the outdoor movies around the neighborhood (my yard isn't really good for setting up the big screen), I started to set up the projector in the living room with minimal complaints from my wife and last week we were out at lunch and I said, "you know, I'm thinking of making a smaller screen that would fit on the deck and we can have more, smaller showings at the house" and she said, "OK. Sounds like fun." I think she's getting really anxious to get me to complete my basement theater too! We were in Wally World the other night looking at the cheap DVDs and she said, "I'd like to see that, but I think I'll wait until the basement's done!"

Your wife will come around! Once you go big, you won't go back!

Good luck,

Welcome, Don!

Yeah, I can relate to this...  I have a habit of starting projects and getting distracted.  I'm "reminded" now and then too, which is generally a good thing in the end.

Good luck.  You'll work it out and everyone will have a great time.  Keep us posted!
