This thread is a long time coming. I just started building a new house and have been planning this day for a long, long time. I have always dreamed of a dedicated theater and to design and build something without any limitations (except for unlimited funds
). I bought a house 6 years ago and turned one of the bedrooms into a theater (build thread link below) and I started drawing plans for this house shortly after we moved in. The bedroom/theater was on the second level of the old house and I always wanted a dedicated room on the main level. That is one of the main reasons we decided to build. You rarely see a home with space on the main level for a theater. I started working on the floorplan and went through hundreds of revisions until we finally finalized them about 3 months ago.
The house will not be done until May/June but I wanted to create a build thread to document the progress of the house build as well as the theater build. Some of the most memorable threads I have read on here have been house builds along with the theater. I just went through and read my build thread from 6 years ago and it was pretty neat catching up on the process for the theater. Anyway, I plan to have the builder finish out the room with clips, hat channel, double drywall with green glue and that is pretty much it. I have been in touch with BIGmouthinDC and plan to enlist his help/expertise on the theater. I am really excited about that part! I have been planning this house/theater for 10+ years. It is going to be a fun ride!
