So after almost 4 months I have finally finished my room. I started with a unfinished basement in are new home. I had a dedicated room with 84 inch projected screen in my old house but was limited by space. We really enjoyed that room and could not live without a theater. My wife was very understanding when we got our new house and this is what i was able to build. I did everything myself exept for the carpet. The room is 14 wide 7.6 tall and 22.6 long. I really wanted a bar at the back after seeing the ones on this site and at the local ht store.I am so glad I made room for it it works great when we have people over. This puts the front row at 11.5 feet and looks crazy that close the kids love it. The risers is 12inches tall. the built ins at the back are 24x22. The panels on the left cover a window that now serves as storage. the panels are 2inch mineral wool. The screen wall is made of a 2x2 frame and wrapped in grille cloth and micro suade. It is not a false wall because i didnt want the screen 2 feet closer to the first row. The bottom is 2feet deep on the sides an then taper down to 1 foot deep to give me more floor space up front. The pillars on the side of the screen are rounded out towards the wall. I was going to do them squared but thought it looked like it took up too much of the room. The rounded really sucks you into the screen. The screen its self is a 16:9 135inch diag. blackout cloth. The projector is a hc3800. I have yamaha fronts and center, monoprice inwalls for the sides and rears. 7.1 yamaha 567. ed a2 300 sub and and old mtx sub to fill in the rear. For the budget I had I am very pleased with how it turnrd out. We had 13 people over on opening night and the room worked great plenty of room and lots of fun.Iif you have any questions feel free to ask. This site has really helped me along the way and many of the rooms have inspired me.
