My wife and I built a home in the Twin Cities which we left the basement unfinished. I decided to build a HT after going through this forum seeing all the very nice setups.

The room will be 16’x11.5’x8’

Construction began in November and has slowed down due to my wife and I having baby girl..

So far I have completed the framing, electrical, Low voltage and stage. I have HAVC being put in on Monday. We will be doing two supplies and one return. I will finish the riser, put up some insulation and run a couple cat5e runs to the rack.

Let me know what you thing and any advise will be great.. Thanks!

I will be running a Lutron spacer system with 2 zones. I will also have a switched outlet for a rope light.

Here is the outline of the room


Space





I am planning on having a 104" screen


Room framed






Stage which is now filled with sand


Riser - I used 2x6s due to city stating the max height of the riser could only be 7.75" once finished.
At framing inspection the inspector said it would not matter.. So I filled it with insulation and put a second layer of 3/4" plywood on top..


The back corner of the room has a sharp angle to it. I built this out and I am having a custom cabinet built for DVD storage.


I had a 2post rack sitting around that I put into one of the walls. I will only have 20 U's showing in the end. This should be nice having the back of the components in the Mech. room. The rack will has its own 20amp circuit.



I wired two outlets into the riser for power recliners. I also wired another 1gang box that will be used for a 1gang light (Pass & Seymour hallway light with sensor TMHWLECC).



I have wired 4 4" recessed lights and 5 sconces



Low voltage is finished. I did run 2" PVC from the projector LV box to the rack.



This is what I am looking to do with the screen wall.

Riser filled with Insulation

How do you keep your room so clean while you work?

For me 2" should be plenty. I only have a hdmi cable ran. But if needed I should have no problem fitting a DVI, component and should have plenty of room to spare.

a few short comments, what was your reasoning for not having sound isolation of any means? those surround locations will be really close to peoples ears. the triangular odd section would make an excellent bass trap. I wish you luck and enjoyment in your theater!

what you are looking at will be sconces for lighting. the surrounds will be up closer to the ceiling. Look for the oragne low voltage boxes on the ceiling.

As far as sound isolation... we really didn't look into a ton, and felt unless the equipment was very top of the line, the difference it would make would not be noticed by the average person. Also, the odd shape of the room made it hard research how to do it properly.

Any suggestions on it would be appreciated though. We have thought about putting base traps on each corner of the stage area. Any thoughts on that?

Actually the PT-AE4000U. As Zivman said I am probably getting the 2.35.1 screen.

Finally was able to spend some time to get a couple coats of primer on the walls.. I also got two coats of paint on the ceiling and the screen wall.

I plan to get the other wall painted this week.
