Where do I start? Is the title clever enough? I'll start by saying thank you to everyone on this forum and the never-ending stream of information. I've spent hours reading these forums, looking at pictures, trying to find examples with dimensions of the room I am building and see some great ideas and some hard working folks here that seem to suffer for their ht.
I'll get right to it. I'm building a home. The process started slower than I wanted, but now it seems that I'm 2 months away from drywall and well, I am starting to panic. I've thought about what I want in a HT, but I don't know if I have the space and I would love some ideas as well as will keep everyone posted with how the process goes.
I am thinking about the pro design service, but I want to make sure they can help me with a room that will hopefully be a semi-dedicated ht, but with somehow managing to cram in some room for a work station.
The room is going to be 17'4" x 16' give or take a few inches (as the 16' is block to block currently). There will be 10" ceilings.
The design of the room and area around it is attached. There will be nothing above the room or the dining room next to it. The second floor should not be an issue.My wish list:
AT Screen w / stage
seating for 6 - 7
Room for a work station (idea I really like for a workstation attached)
I watch movies and listen to a lot of music. I'd like to do all this - whenever I want...
Very little gaming, but this could change in the future.My current equipment is:
Rotel 1067 receiver (probably need to replace)
B&W HTM62 center
Paradigm Monitor ADP 390's (rear)
Paradigm Studio Sub 12
(this layout dimensions are obviously not final inside dimensions of my room. those will be as I mentioned above).
So I'll start with my current questions:
I'd like my screen to be on the wall with the windows. I am ok with figuring out a way to black these out, but the windows must stay. Is this just crazy? The windows are 27"x27" with 101.75" between them and they start at 69.5" from the concrete.
I'd like that desk I mentioned somewhere?
Am I dreaming to think I could somehow get all this in one room?
Should I rethink my layout?
Room size cannot change. Next I need to get into wiring - but I guess that is for another forum!
I'll start with this and see if I can any bites. Thank you for your time and any potential feedback.
