Have you considered turning the room round? Having the door at the back is often preferable and as you're planning on ripping out everything there and covering that window you may find it would help with the screen wall.

Other than that I'll just say good luck and you're doing it the right way (ripping out and starting again). Remember, lots of pics!

Only if you can enter at riser level, otherwise on the side in front of the first row is going to work better. A smaller relocated door as shown in your plan looks pretty good to me. Also if you are width constrained being able to enter the room and sit without squeezing bast your 11 inch aisle is a good plan.

This is going to be a fun build. Small rooms when done right tend to have a cozy feeling imo.

Also, everything is negotiable. Have you mentioned to your wife if you have three seats in the front row and 4 in the back, everyone's heads would be staggered for a better view of the screen? Just trying to save you some room for acoustics and the side speakers .

Take a look at my build thread, my room is only 11'8" wide after doing the double drywall. It is quite doable. My Jives are on the ocean and should be here in a little under 3 more weeks. I am doing |00||00| for my front row and using Tribues for my back row doing |00|. Wife wanted all loveseat configs.

I recommend creating a floorplan to scale, that way you can literally cut out pieces of paper to represent seats, lights, etc, and see how it all fits in. You can also post the floorplan here for people to critique.

"Not sure if it is strange to do a soffit/light tray when not in a basement, but I love the look and lighting/wiring options, so if I don’t get talked out of it, it will probably be an Irish (black/green) version of the Ruben/Damelon design."

I think most agree they look good on any floor. They've been done in other rooms as well such as living rooms and dining rooms so no worries there I believe. Especially with 9 foot ceilings.

Good luck.

+4. I have rope lights in the soffits of my dining room, poker room, master bedroom and a lot in the theater. Works great in most any area.

You sound like a real estate agent!
