My room is a 16X14 room it has 8 windows and 1 door that leads outside The room also has a sliding glass door to access the room from the house, which I will convert to French doors to access the theater. The room was a back porch that we redid years ago. We sheet rocked it and carpeted it and have been using it as a pool house and also as a entertaining/bar room in the summers. The room does not have any HVAC. The room is also on a concrete slab.
I have talked to a number of people about plans for the room and I think we are not connecting on to what I want and also more than I want to spend on just simple plans. So, I am going at this alone with my contractor and some help my peeps at AVS
Anyone willing to give me some helpful advise, I would be more than gracious . You can also count yourself in for the grand opening of my little theater
if it ever gets done.
I basically want a very simple room with a row of 4 seats and a projector that I can call a theater. My plan is the gut the room and rewire all the electric and add one of the newer single room duct less air-conditioning/heat pump units. I also want to do ceiling with a starry sky mural. I want to remove all the windows, reframe the room, add all new 20amp electric and get it wired for a 7.2 surround sound theater and also a projector. My question is, what materials do I use to help sound proof the room. I am not going crazy with acousical pannels, I just want to insulate and sheetrock and anything else that needs to be done to sound proof.
If anyone can steer me in the direction of a similar build thread or advise on how to and what to use, I would appreciate it.
