I like that the screen doesn't have (or appear to have) a severe curve to it.

But alas, I ended up selling them with the intention of upgrading to the Legacy Aeris. Things worked out a little differently.

Yeeah man--it's a very slight curve. Nothing extreme, to be sure! The screen arrived a few weeks ago and it very difficult not having it up!

Oh, how I wish I could hurry up and finish building this theater so I could come back here to talk about the room, instead of talking about building the room on the build thread. That being said, allow me to share some pics of what we've done so far.....
Started with this:




Then, got married and built a house with the wife. The decision to build a new theater was made, and thus the below journey began:

Concrete has been poured! Here's the portion of the house where my theater will reside!!

02.14.2014: It's starting to become real.

Front Screen Wall (18ft across)



Front Screen Wall with Right Wall


Rear Wall of the theater


Another shot of the rear wall


The left wall will be built around the location of the orange pole on the floor


27x10 storage room directly behind the theater (This is going to be soundproofed as well and will be a "command center." It will house the projector as well)


This is the separate listening room in the basement. It will also be soundproofed and will house a two-channel music system.


Then, up went the drywall at the builders insistence (and against my hopes and dreams)


THE DOWN CAME THE DRYWALL, DEMO-NINJA STYLE!


Then, the bathroom (left of screen) and mechanicals (HVAC/Water Heater to right of screen) needed to be moved...


So...I moved 'em


Did some framing...


Then, I had to create a doorway right through my sump pump closet...so I moved my sump pump....


With the sump pump out of the way, it was time to widen the door...so we did it...


Then, insulation...


Ordered 180 sheets of drywall...



Then, Drywall...


Then, we built interior soffit and a riser....


Then, a baffle wall got built for the LCR speakers







To be continued...
femi and wilfredent like this.

Followed this from the beginning. It's great to see something like this that starts with a bare space and eventually ends up as a theater. It really shows the amount of work that is put in. I know for me, if I were to do something like this, I would have to get a company to do it for me from beginning to end. Construction included. You really kept a nice report of your progress step by step. I can't wait to see what the final room looks like.

There is a LOT of work! If I was building a room like my previous theater, the work would be done--I'd just have to paint the walls and put the equipment in. But soundproofing the wall was no joke, and now the finishing details are really something else.

If I had the ca$h, I'd definitely pay a company to do this....but I'd be looking at well over $100k in labor and materials. For that amount of money, I could buy a trailer and some land, outfit it with all the gear, and go "drive to the movies" when we want to watch something. lol.

The wall panel design will definitely be...different Thanks for following along

I hear you on the cost thing. But if I wanted a dedicated room from scratch, that's what I would have to do. Now, if in the future I have a pre made room, that I could use, that might soften the blow. But still, I can see how much work you and Big have put in and it's impressive. Keep up the pace . I need to experience this first hand. Assuming I get an invite .

Absolutely! You're there for sure!

The pace is going to be non-stop henceforth! I'm in a marathon to finish this thing before the end of the summer!

Of course, we know the true purpose of that riser. It's the main stage for karaoke night.
