Long time reader first time poster. Finally got around to building my own 'Escape' and like many others on here I want to thank to all the others who have waded in before me. I hope a methods, idea, or my mistakes can help someone else. I am stealing so many ideas and advice from other build threads I am not sure anything I will do is original
Anyhow on tho the build.
24' x 14'4" x 8'6" Dedicated room in the basement, started about a month ago. Front and right wall are concrete, rear and left are load bearing. Had to frame in front left half of the room, front wall, and right wall.
Right side and rear of room had a significant amount of pipes.
Construction will be OSB/GG/DD as I write this I am waiting for lumber yard to open to go get more OSB. Had to build a soffit around sewer lines, water lines, & central vac. Will build another soffit in room to house lighting, venting for projector, and cable runs for PJ.
All ran to equipment room located at the front left of theater.
Recessed 3" lights and rope lighting in a two tiered soffit. EDIT: redesigned HUGE thanks to BIG for pointing me in the right direction.
Two row seating, riser design given me some pause due to location of doors. Again BIG thanks man.
Columns will be shallow, planning on a backlit plexigass panel to simulate windows as we go to "hyperdrive"
Also will be building a handprint authorization panel on exterior or room. Still fleshing out internals.
Working with Bryan (bpape) over at GIK Acoustics for treatments. IF you are planning to build, building, or already completed get in touch with them.
I already own my speakers and audio, Def Tech BP7000, CLR3000, BPVX/P rears x4 with B&K amplification. Need a new pre-amp & DVD player...
If you have any suggestions, tips, or advice I am all ears....err eyes.
Well on to some pics...
Quick mock up
