Dude, that took me 2 weeks to decide what to do. Finally I was like "drymount it", let him be a giant - sometimes you gotta break a grid.

Yeah. Measured the wall then did a bunch of photoshop mockups for arrangement/order. Then an insane amount of measuring, patience, and help from a buddy. Also, I didn't get them all framed at the same time from the same place so ever-so-slight variations in height were maddening. Then...I kinda forgot to measure the TV height so uh...it needs to be raised like 3-4" or something. I'll sort that out another day.
