Room Dimensions and Treatments:
My "space" is 23'6" L x 16'4" W x 8'9" H. "room in a room" construction with a 1" gap between existing framed walls and concrete foundation walls. All side walls will connect to ceiling with RISC-DC04 clips. (The space inside of the "Inside" wall is 22'8" x 15'4" x 8'9" pre-drywall)
Ceiling is clipped & channeled from the existing ceiling joists.
All walls will be 2 layers of 5/8" drywall with green glue between.
28" wide, 1 3/4" thick solid coor door on the side wall. This is semi-hidden or hidden behind wall fabrics. Door Handle will be a black emtek, and hinges are wide-throw to allow for the 1" of treatments on the walls.
Soffit around the room inside of the drywall, which will be used for absorption and containing HVAC lines and conduit. On the inside/center facing side of the soffit is a "light box" which will contain some small recessed lights painted red. (Like a border to the middle-tray ceiling area) Soffit size will be about 16" wide x 10" tall.
Stage built using roofing felt with 2x10"s filled with sand and double 3/4" plywood.
Riser built using 2x12"s with insulation, and also double 3/4" plywood.
