Today is all about the wiring and electrical. Friday night we went out to look at tile and stopped into a place on SW Military Drive called Mundo Tile. Honestly, I didn't see anything that interested me and the one tile color that we felt like we could work with was something that would have to be ordered. We took that as our excuse to just leave. Eva is going back to our old stand-by, Floor & Decor on Bandera Road.
We also went into BestBuy to grab the remaining speakers we need. I have the front, surround and rear speakers already, but we have been putting off buying the sub-woofer and center speaker. I had looked on-line and also a few other places. When we got to Best Buy I was a little frustrated with the options but a guy came and helped us out. Turns out, I had no idea which sub-woofer would be compatible with the receiver I bought. Long story short, we spent an hour with the guy, researching and making sure that what they had would work with what I had already purchased. I was ready to leave and come back later but Eva insisted we knock this out. In the end, Justin (the BestBuy guy) found matching sub and center that worked for us.
The good news is, we have an ass-load of trim that needs to be painted. We were going to use black to match the trim around our screen, but I was not fond of that idea. So now, we are going to do all our trim (except for the screen) in Ancient Burgundy. Problem solved.
Today is all about getting things hooked up. If I have to rip open any walls, I want to do it before we put the floor in since sheet rock and painting is so messy. Wish me luck!
