After many years of building expensive homes I finally get to build my own.
My favorite part of the entire construction by far, is the home theater room. I have been on this forum looking for a while now and appreciate the depth of knowledge that people here have and are willing to share.
I decided to use Dennis Erskine's services to layout the theater so I may have as near perfect of a room as possible.
As far as the equipment goes, I have yet to decide (I am waiting to see how much money I have left over after the home build). What I would like and what I can afford at the end may not be the same but hopefully with some luck I will be able to get as close as possible to my dream.
I have seen some excellent theaters here and really liked the Sandmans theater which I have used as inspiration.
I am going to start documenting the build and update as much as time permits.
I appreciate your comments on the room itself and suggestions on how I can make it better.
Room is 16 x 21 with 10 feet of headroom. The front area around the AT screen will be GOM and considering fabric frames for the rest of the room. I haven't yet decided on flooring but will go with carpet or cork.
The home is controlled by an Elan G! system which will also be controlling the home theater lights, projector, heating and cooling.
Attached are some pictures of the current state of the room and the layout.
