I have a tiny bit of progress to report. I'm in the cue for the AVS Pro Theater Layout. Hopefully within the next few weeks I'll have some plans and I can really get started.
I do, however, have a few issues that are troubling me. First, I took a closer look at my ceiling height on the riser. I have 9' ceilings, but my riser is 15-1/2". Assuming I drop my ceiling below the beam in my theater, that only leaves me with 7-1/2" above my door OPENING (not including any trim). I would like to have an 8" soffit to run my ductwork in. Any thoughts on minimum height between the top of the door opening and the soffit?
Next, I have an engineered flooring system in my theater, but because the floor above has lots of open areas, they had to double up and even triple some of the I-beams along with some LVL's. The problem is that this leaves a hollow cavity between the beams that I can't get insulation into. Has anyone else run into an issue like this? I'm planning to talk to Ted about it, but I'm curious as to what others have done as well.
