Complicated Theater Room
Im interested in converting my 9' 9" x 22' patio into a "Theater". There are many design limitations that make it almost impossible to make it a true theater so thats why i posted here instead of the dedicated theater sections.
This was originally a screened in patio (outdoor) but has since been converted into an "addition". The patio was attached to the house and under the same roof as the rest of the house (Don't know why I felt the need to mention that). The screen and frames were removed and replaced with a wall of windows / doors. Because this was a patio, there are two sliding glass doors. Both lead into the house (on two separate walls). All walls are concrete.
The two sliding glass doors are not necessary but would be a pain to get rid of. The one on the short wall (9') is never utilized and was considering to cover this with drywall. The other sliding glass door on the long wall (22') is good because it allows sunlight into the house considering the curtains are open on the patio windows. The other short wall is a common wall with my neighbors patio.
Fit 6 seats inside possibly on two levels. Screen wall has a 55" LED with the possibility of upgrading to a PJ. Isolate a majority of the sound in the room. I know it wouldn't be completely isolated and I dont want to build a new room inside this room.
This room is all concrete and glass. The ceiling is the only surface with drywall. I figured I would need to cover the tile floor with carpet but not sure what to do with the walls. The wall leading to the outside has a full length curtain that helps dampen the room a little but the other three walls are concrete or concrete and glass. Would need to figure out some way to treat them. I would also like to somehow keep vibrations to a minimum on the common wall so I dont disturb my neighbor. It is a patio and they barely go out there but not sure if the sound would travel into their home.
Currently running Klipsch RB35, RC35 and RS42's with a SW10. Denon AVR-S700 and 55" LED TV.
I've included a rough sketch of the room for visual. Please recommend a solution or if you think its a horrible idea or not worth it please let me know. TV is currently on the common wall. Ceiling is 8.5' incase anyone was wondering. Thanks all
