NOW BACK IN OCTOBER 2011
Okay, so I posted some renderings a long time ago and spoke about the 11.4 setup and the "bumps" that I would be creating to support the various channels along the wall. I've gone back and forth and every way possible in the design. After a lot of discussion with MississippiMan and working with the layout, I designed the bumps and created the stud structures.
Below are shots of the work of these structures so I could get ready for the drywallers to come back in to hang the rest of their material.'Left Wall
There are two bumps on each wall (left & right) and then the corner wall in the front to support the L/R channel, and height/width. Here you can see the stud structure created for each. I mounted a piece of OSB on the corner unit just so I could get a better representation of what it would look like with drywall over it.Bump Close-Ups
The bump is a center section roughly 7" deep by 22" wide. Each side then angles from a 2" offset back to a 1" edge from the wall.Front Corner Walls
Shot showing the two corner walls. I like how it focuses the attention towards the screen. You can see the blue tape marking off a 12' wide 16:9 screen. The inside horizontal lines (taping falling down) shows a scope screen.Rear Wall
This will be a bar area with cabinets. There are two structures on either side that will serve for the rear channels. Two Outlaw Audio compact subs go at the bottom of these structures. They also serve as the HVAC returns for the rooms. It's a separate zoned HVAC system.AV Closet
Just the current state of the closet with some of the wiring shown.
