I know.......I know.........not a catchy build name, but as I near retirement my Son has referred to this room as my coffin. As he has stated many times, "Might as well seal the door and call it your coffin". Seems fitting.......
Anyhow, after 2.5 years our home has finally sold and I don't need to be reminded how I took it in the "stove pipe" concerning selling price. The original thought two years ago was to have the room built by an expert, aka. Erskine-Group but now that thought has taken a turn for the worst and am budget conscious. I still have a few hurdles to jump as my current home closes in November.............any snafu's in closing............well, this post is dead on arrival.......moot.
Well, the crux of the story..........this home will be one-story, with a bonus room above the garage adjacent to the theater room As one might expect, by wife' sewing room above the garage is getting bigger........as my dedicated theater room is getting smaller. Not a bad trade off due to my lovely wife of 26 years has been supportive in regard to my dedicated theater endeavor.
Theater Room is 25 ft 2 inches X 17 ft X 10 ft 6 inches............with 22 inch wide X 12 inch high perimeter soffit.
