I would love to have it all done by the end of the year, but it depends on time and money (doesn't everything?).
Wow, this sounds really familiar. I'm doing the whole basement and sub basement all at once too. And my theater dimentions are pretty spot to yours. (Cubic volume)
I'm also doing a bar area, a bath room and theater. The only difference is I'm putting another bed room in instead of a pool area. I'd rather go your route. :P
Strangely enough, my least favorite part so far has been the insulation. It took me about a month and a half to get past it. I got framing, electrical, plumbing, and drywall hung in that much time. ^_^
And the money permitting part, I can totally sympathize with that. Who would've thought something like green glue could cost as much as a good center speaker? :-)
Just remember though, don't skimp, just wait and save if you hit a block. Once a room is built, there's not much chance of you tearing it down and doing it again anytime soon. Unless you're like Art S. :-)
And oh yeah, where'd you get such nice straight 2x4's? And how'd you get that floor so clean looking? ^_^
