Here is a 360 degree GIF of my actual room that I will be converting (with two shots of my screen wall):

There are a few challenges with the windows and doors. I am not worrying about sound proofing the room, but I do want the room to sound good, so I will definitely be putting in some acoustic panels and bass traps.

Here is a 360 degree Sketchup GIF from the same angles:

Great news. I have had a builder come around and it is only going to cost about NZ$7000-$10000 to put some internal stairs in! My wife now has a part time job and our tenants are moving out in January. That means that I will FINALLY be able to get into my HT area and make some progress.

I have also been playing around with my Sketchup drawings. I really like the pattern I've made on my pillars. It's kind of Aztecy.

Are you thinking of implementing Dolby Atmos? You're at correct stage for it....

Nah, I'll be doing 5.1, but have it wired for 7.1 in the future. It is a pretty small room.

Looks great Jonny!

Like use of crown on wall to soffit transition, rope light, and soffit to ceiling transition. I used cove for wall to soffit transition because I had to........would have preferred to do what you are planning.

Are you planning paint grade or stain grade........you probably can get Australian Cypress cheap.........I really love the look of that specific wood species.

NZ Pine is the cheapest, so I'll be using that. It will be painted anyway.

I've just done some Sketching Up of the soffits:



Is that too much wood?

Why so complicated a build for the soffit? Take a page out of BigMouthinDC's soffit builds and save a little money, time and
energy.


You could punch through the wall and put an Atlantic Slim 5 av rack in the craft room. Or simply not have the av rack in the room.
With those soffits, you do have a way to run wiring around the room.

BigmouthinDC's soffits:




And if you do an entry door with storage, it'll eat some room depth. Why not extend the concept and
work in even more craft room storage and your av rack? This way you remove the av rack from the room
entirely, and your new soffit is very convenient for getting wiring around the room.

I thought it was fairly simple.

I will look into the price of the metal channels compared to wood.

As for going into the craft room, I would love to, but my wife already thinks she doesn't have enough room... I won't win that argument!

I have re-calculated and I have put the studs(?) too close together in my original drawing, so now the studs will look like this:

Could you sell the Mrs on a larger craft room foot print, by reworking the cabinetry?
And work in a vertical cabinet for an av rack? Then you could do a small soffit at the
doorway, and have conduit runs feed into the soffit, which then would be used to get cabling
around the room.

Good thinking, but we will already be ripping out the existing kitchenette and putting a whole heap of new cupboards, benches and shelving. You should see how much crap crafting equipment/paper etc that she has... (she is a Stampin' Up demonstrator.)

Interesting idea about closing down the opening so that there will be more wall space.... hmmmmm.

Woohoo, I have council approval on the plans for the internal stairs and the tenants are moving out in three weeks. We have booked a builder who will start construction of the stairs in 4 weeks (March 2nd). Once the stairs are done (as well as the new kitchen/carpet/wooden floors/lighting) then I will be painting various rooms while trying to squeeze in time to begin my Home Theatre. 2015 will be the year of renovation. It is finally starting to happen!

I still have to paint the house, and turn the nearest window into french doors, but the spa is all connected up and is AWESOME. It's a 6kW six person spa with 105 jets and has a pop up tv and dvd player! I got it all for a bargain too. The purchase has delayed my HT though...
