I just woke up and started a theater ! I've been procrastinating long enough, dreaming, delaying, making excuses so I made a goal to get started by my birthday this year otherwise my friend would have full right to verbally taunt me endlessly !
So the first move was to hire Dennis Erskine right off the bat. I just got the finalized plans today and will be pouring over them. In the meantime I've contacted a few general contractors and will try to decide on whether to hire Dennis for the construction or a local group.
The room is 15' 5" wide, 19' 1" long and 9' high on a concrete slab foundation on the first floor.
Plan calls for GG + DD + RSIC, riser/platform (no stage), Acoustik Mat subfloor, Quest Acoustical materials for the walls, JM InsulShield and GOM. I have no equipment yet so I've asked for his recommendations.
There is a 9' wide entertainment niche on the other side of the theater's back wall. Since the projector is located behind the rear wall, it would have projected (no pun) into the entertainment niche so the niche wall was moved foward to allow for a newly created space for the projector.
As I get pictures, activity, equipment, etc. I'll update.
Thanks to Reaper (on the forum) for his renders from several years ago. The plan DE did is a bit different from the render but it gives you an idea of how the space can be used for a theater.
