I've always wanted a theater room, however, the home that i purchased 2 years back, did not have anywhere to install one. Mainly watching movies.
My home is a mid century modern home, that sits on top of a hill in california. Outside my home, there is a patio that is unused, and i spoke to my wife and we decided it would be great to build out this room to increase our SQFT, and in the process, I get to build my theater room.
The main objective of this room was to be able to enjoy the beauty of the valley and the mountains, while being able to convert the room into a theater room as well. The style needed to be clean and simple to match the rest of the home. I wanted the screen to be in the ceiling when not in use.
Last year, I started working on the project with my architect and engineers on how I could build out the room. The space we had was around 630sqft, 38 feet long by 16 feet wide.
The project has taken a lot longer than expected due to permits and county. I am finishing up my 2nd round of plans and will be submitting them for approval. Hopefully I can break ground in the next 2 months!
Here is a list of items that the room will have:
135" Elite Screen Aerie Tension 2 ( BIG THANKS TO ELITE SCREENS FOR SUPPORTING ME)
Epson 5020 Projector
Receiver ( either Pioneer NR-1009 or Yamaha RX-A2010BL: both are 9.2 receivers)
2xPolk 70 fronts
1xPolk CS2 Mid
4xPolk RC60i for sides
2xPolk OMW5 for rears
For my sub, I have not yet decided one which one. I currently have 2 BIC PL200 in my living room only one is being used. I may move the 2 into this theater room and get another for the living room, or find a 15" one.
The setup for the sides and rear speakers needed to be hidden or very unnoticeable. I am sacrificing some SQ for aesthetics.
One thing I didn't mention is that this room, 2 full walls are floor to ceiling glass. Because it is floor to ceiling glass, external light is an issue. My plans are to install automated rolling shades. I am currently considering a full blackout or a 1% mesh shade.
Attached are some of the renderings and layout of the room. The back of the room may have a small table for cards etc.
