Hello everyone. I have been reading and trying to learn what I can from these forums. There is so much information out there it makes my head spin. There are so many knowledgable people on this board, both DIYers and pros. I would appreciate a little input from y'all on the initial physical design for my proposed HT.
First off, this is going to be new construction. I originally was going to have a single car garage attached to the house and a two car garage adjacent, connected via breezeway or small room. Then I thought that if I attached all three to the house I could build above it, using that space for a dedicated HT. Plans for the home are still very initial but because I want to make this part of the plans, I felt that it was important to get the overall idea of the room so I can make sure to work it into the plans.
As I said, it will be over a three car, divided bay garage and storage rooms, possible over laundry also. The overall size of the space available for this room is 30' x 40'. I know that is a huge space, but I want a WOW room, even though I have a peanut butter budget. I certainly do not mind doing a good bit of the labor myself, if I have an idea of how to do it.
I have attached a few pictures of an initial plan I drew up. You will notice that I have used loveseats instead of theater seating. I like that these give the room a more comfortable feel, although, it may change.
The screen size I have started with is 12' wide. I really was not sure what size would be appropriate.
I have allocated 3 feet behind the screen for speakers and whatever else may need to go behind.
Each riser is 12" high, but this could easily change.
The overall height of the room can be as high as 12 ft, with each rise having 11 ft and 10 ft of height, respectively. There again, this can change.
I included quick measurements on one of the pictures just for reference.
