Using Drywall To Hide Your Home Theater Shell & Wiring

You've chosen your screen and projector, built your home theater shell, set up and wired in your sound and video system, and you are ready to bring this baby together with some drywall, paint, and acoustical panels. So let's get started!

Being handy with basic tools is usually important at this stage, so if you feel uncomfortable with this part, you can always get someone who knows a bit about basic structure building to help you, but really anyone who has a general knowledge of how to build things should be able to finish the project satisfactorily.
