I thought of getting rid of bedroom 4 and just adding that space to the home theater as well, but also moving bedroom 4's exterior wall to be the same as the theater's. Possibly keep the closet area how it is and use for equipment? this would also eliminate the clippe corner as it would now go straight across....
Glad you didn't!!
If you dont mind losing the fourth bedroom, that is what I would do. Actually, that is what I did, I built my +/- 3,300 SF house with 3 bedrooms and one HT!! And I have an equipment closet in the HT, and I still dont have drapes in the HT!!
...I have almost 2 acres to play with so I have enough land to make bigger, but dont want to go too large as it would increas cost a bunch...I think, but would check with builder...
Chaos! You just described my house on two acres!! but my story is I had the house framed and ready for the roofer sub (I dont do roofs anymore!) when I was standing in my great room with my buddy looking out the window and said "Get your tape, I always wanted a home theater!..." I moved into it about two years ago, back in '08 I was looking at $24k Sim2 C3X which was 720P!! but it did throw out one hell of a picture of the Russians playing Sweden in hocky -- Anyway, I didn't buy it as I had never finished my HT, and fast forward to now, I just paid $3.2k for a JVC X30, need to order the screen and pick up a new AV reciever (Marantz?)
Do you have any plans for ceiling treatments? Coffered, Vaulted, etc? You could do some nice transitions with that layout and now is the time.
You could also "sink" the HT down 8" quite easy unless you are doing a slab. What state are you in?
And why a split system on a new house?
Good luck on the build. Eric
