-2 x 2 Redwood...amount depends on size of screen you are custom building.
-2 1/2 yards of blackout cloth in Matte white for our 100 inch. You can get this at Jo-Ann's fabric store. ( amount of yards you will need depends on the size of your custom built frame)
-L brackets (Again, amount depends on size of your frame) we used 12 in both large and small sizes around the frame.
This entire project depends on your projector placement. We bought an Epson 710 HD for $600. My husband measured and placed the projector on the ceiling and wired it all in. So, if you don't have a handyman you may need to hire an electrician for this part.
Here is what the frame looks like... Remember... the size of frame is custom to each person because of the layout of your home,type of projector and where you place it. Once you have gotten the projector settings, placement and wiring figured out in your home you can build the screen of your dreams. The wall we had to use has a small door that enters under our stairs and a light switch so our options were limited on wall selection but I think 100 inches is plenty big enough. Although my husband dreams of bigger. LOL.
After all this is done you want to hang it over screws so it won't slip. Be careful when hanging, you don't want any imperfections. It sounds tough to do but if you have a handyman or if in fact you are handy yourself with these kinds of projects you can easily make your own custom built big screen for a fraction of what it would cost to buy one. Not to mention this baby is so much more lighter than a television.
FYI...We also bought blackout curtains for our windows in the basement. If you don't know what they are they are curtains designed to block out light. We use them so that if we watch television during the day the screen isn't washed out and hard to see.
Until Next Time...
Peace In Love Always,
