Well, I have most of the riser construction completed. Nothing fancy, just a big box made of wood to sit a couch on. The final part of filling it with batt insulation and the double decking should be all that is left. Plan on gluing/screwing the first, add a layer of felt, then screw the final layer. Overall dimension is approximately 8' deep, 12' wide, and 10" high. Only the perimeter is on the ground. The stringers and cross braces are all cut short. I used an arch cut on the stringers because arches are cool..
The view from the front of the room.
Coming into the room. This entire side is a step. I am thinking I want to use a bullnose finish as opposed to carpet lip.
Step lights, cheap and effective. They will eventually be painted black.
The big grey worm is just conduit to allow access to underneath the couch and behind the front row couch from the back of the equipment rack. Future-proofing while I can. I did the same thing from the equip rack up the the screen, projector, and lighting control box.
