Post The CineCube Build -humble beginning to ambitious finish

06/01/2014 - New House purchased with Media room - 13' x 17'; 8ft wall vaulted to 10ft Ceiling; 2nd floor over kitchen, prewired for 5.. Remained unused for a year, with couple couches.

A simple question, 'what system do I get?' set me on the path to a wonderful journey (possibly never ending) on AVScience.
Result - glorious plans in mind

12/2014 - Purchased the Klipsch RF-82 ii system -7.2 with Onkyo NR838
2 RF-82 ii; 1 RC-52 ii; 2 RS-52 ii; 2 RB-61 ii; 2 SW-310 with wireless kits
(Lesson learnt - did not realize the importance of the critical component - The HT Cuboid) few speakers still sitting in boxes.

02/2015 - With a goal to setup the system, analyzed the room and realized that I could tap into some attic space behind the front
wall to increase the length by 5ft. ( Obstructions; 1)Re-route the AC duct opening to below kitchen and 2)reposition an air vent pipe to between the studs, 3) a gas pipe sticking out by 4 inches from the wall line (initial plan was to build a wall around it; 4) Lower attic floor built on 8" joist at 20 oc vs the Media room subfloor joist TJI - 14")

04/2015 - DIY , 1 (with little help from local AC repair guy) and 2.

05/2015 - Goal - Just extend the front wall.
Mustered enough strength to break the front wall. Cleared the front drywall, wiring, trim etc exposing the studs. (pics)
Coordinated with local building framer to extend the ceiling joist. The new joist replaced the support for existing purlins landing on the front wall (pics). A new back wall stud and floating stage built. Sound proofing blunders- made half a.. attempts and filled the hollow portion with Roxul Safe-n-Sound, some insulation, sound board etc., Not sure how it would have performed but could have created a big drum roll for the kitchen (read triple leaf effect)

06/2015 - more learning -- removed drywalls on all the side (except ceiling) with my little helpers (pics), removed the stage
structure as well. there was no insulation on the interior wall (getting serious into soundproofing now).
Ripped the carpet, padding (should have done it first). Well thats how one becomes wise.

By now, I triggered all sorts of panic modes in my wife and they still continue till date.
