So after a lot of lurking and snooping around, I've decided to start a build thread for those people who are extreme beginners, like myself. I've decided to start a home theater project in one of my guest bedrooms (I'm a Floridian and basements are non existent down here). Right now, I am just preparing the room for the future home theater. There was a half closet inside of the room which I knocked down to maximize space.
Here is the layout of the guest room where the madness will take place. The wall on the bottom of the picture is where the closet was.
Here is the layout of the room and my miserable attempt to show how I want it set up. I want to build a wall slightly recessed from where the closet was so that I can install an in wall dvd bookcase and an equipment rack.
The room is 13'10" length x 10'9" width x 8'3" height. Since this is preexisting construction, I was thinking of adding a 5/8 sheet of dry wall to the 4 walls with green glue. This will reduce the overall space of the room however, I am willing to take the loss if it will improve acoustics. My question is, will I be able to attach drywall to the preexisting walls with green glue without sanding or prepping? It should be noted that my walls are covered with "knockdown finish". Therefore, the surface of the drywall is textured. Secondly, the preexisting dry wall is 1/2 thick. Would that hinder the performance or make my doubling efforts null and void? Thanks in advance for you guys' help. I can't say that this will be an easy process as I am a complete beginner (in audio/visual and general contracting for that matter)!!
