Well, I finally have an update. I moved the return air over to the other side, so now there will be 3ft soffits on each side of the room instead of one big 6ft soffit taking up all of one side. The symmetry should help the cosmetics quite a bit.

Sub'd, but I still think you should go across not the long way!

That would be huge! 24x30.

That would be way to much work since the wall dividing the two rooms is a supporting wall. I'd need to hire a contractor to install a huge steal beam or something. ..

Apologies for my poor MS paint skills, but this is what I was thinking, give or take a few feet of width. I suppose the whole supporting wall thing might mess it up though.

How deep should I build the riser for the rear seating? From the back wall to the door it's about 6ft, so just built it 6ft deep? That seems to be plenty of space for the back row to recline without hitting the front row or back wall.

most recliners need 6 1/2. If you do 6 an average person will hit the recliners in front of them with their feet. Guys who do 6 end up pulling the front row ahead a bit. You frame the stage and riser after you drywall the room

Excellent, thanks for the tips. I'll just take it the whole 6ft to the door, and at worst I'll have to move the front row forward a little bit.

I added top plates to the ceiling for all the new interior walls, but framing had to be put on hold. I kinda forgot about a remodel permit... (which I should have today). This weekend I'll have all the wall framed with pictures posted smile.gif



I won't be doing any work today or tomorrow since I'm on vacation (me and the wife's 10th wedding anniversary!)

I'm framing that back wall right now. Those stupid 2x2's were getting more and more warped by the day so I wanted to get them up.

Here's the back wall just free standing and not secured yet. I chose 2x6's since this will have the four horns just inches away from it and will be take a beating.

Are you building the subs into the risers or something?

No. Even with the Ghorns taking ~50" worth of space in the back of the room, the front row will still be about 9ft back from the TV.

Only two small sections left to frame. I gave up on 2x2's since it took to long to find any that were usable.

I'm very close to being done with framing!



I put Dynamat on the duct work. Made a huge difference if you knock on it now compared to before! It used to just rattle and ring endless it seemed with just a slight tap





I also had to frame around this PVC and there were two of these



My goal is to be done with framing TODAY. I want the rough-in inspection for framing, electrical, and HVAC done by mid-next week at the latest. I need to get the drywall going and soon.

There's going to be tongue-and-groove pine on the bottom of the soffit that will be removable.

I'll post a picture of the complete framing tonight.

Dynamat is good stuff.

FWIW we have duct work going across our room. It was framed and rocked when we bought the house. When we ran wires we had to break into the rock. It's just framed and rocked, no insulation, and I can't hear any ill affects.

If I had the choice I'd wrap in insulation for more reasons than one.

LED lights are up





Think this is enough juice for the amp rack




Rough-in inspection is tomorrow morning. If all goes well I have help lined up for drywall in Thursday.

Inspection went really well. There are only a few minor things that I need to fix but it won't delay drywall this week.
