The pre-planning information gathering on AVS and on this post was crucial in planning the concrete shell of the room. THANK YOU!
As it stands, my 3D rendered plan a few posts up with Gandalf on the screen is still the general plan. Anticipated start date is most likely about 1 year away. I CANNOT wait to get going...
So a question for you all... In my mind I am hoping to spend about $10k-$15k on this build. I have a connection from SnapAV that will help out loads. Is $10k-$15 going to be enough? Tell me where my budgeting is off...
$2,000 projector (Epson 5030 or similar... hopefully more affordable 4k using TI's new DLP chip will be out by then in this price range)
$2,000 for 160" AT screen and Speakers (SnapAV)
$1,500 for Receiver, additional amps, cables, rack, misc networking and AV (SnapAV)
$2,500 seating (SofaMart "The Cloud" - already have one row of this from my previous multipurpose Home Theater)
This is where it gets cloudy... the build and labor costs. Tell me if I'm in the ballpark...
$1,000 ??? Framing (20x30x10 with 2 tiers and stage)
$500 ??? Wiring
$500 ??? Soundproofing
$1000 ??? Wiring and Lighting
$500 ??? Drywall
$1,500 ??? Paint and finish work
$1,000 Bar and Seating
