Design

The SketchUp drawing was done by my 12-year-old son. The reward is setting up VR in the room for him.

Demo to stud


Framing


Insulation


Drywall


Soundproofing was simplified with just GG + double drywall on the shell and Rockwool safe n sound as it is not very important to me. But the actual results surprise me.

Star Ceiling

This is the most challenging part as the contractor has only done fiber optic in drywall before and wasn't wiling to do it with fabric at the beginning. But I successfully persuaded him after showing him some photos from this forum.

The star design was from https://in-the-sky.org/skymap.php. I chose the night and location where I met my wife 20 years ago. I also tweaked the exported SVG file a bit so it is easier to work with.

Star ceiling size - 12' x 16'
Illuminator - Wiedamark 14w dual port x 2.
Fiber Optic Cable - 1.5mm - 20 stars, 1mm - 200 stars, 0.75mm 600 stars
Structure - 5/8" lightweight MDF
Finish - GOM FR701 black

The rolls bought from aliexpress


Marking the stars from the projected image using different colors to indicate different sizes


The cutout is for the atmos speaker


FR701 wrapped


Had to join MDF by 8' + 4' to get 12' wide as I can't find 12' lightweight MDF


First board going up


Working on the second


The third




Done!

Similar structure as the ceiling - FR701 wrapped lightweight MDF. There is one seam at each corner but barely visible.

Very nice - my wife and I have a picture of the night sky the day we got married in our room, putting it in fiber optic in your HT is an excellent way to gain some WAF margin!


You have a beautiful theater.

Excellent indeed.

So is this a "crawl through" av rack, to get at the back of the rack, situation?

I also have a deep and very narrow av closet, and I went to the effort of shortening my Slim5, and elevate it via two pieces of L steel run wall to wall, which are
supported by two pieces of 2x6" on the side walls, and also by some lags in the top of the Slim5.

Yes, "crawl through" rack. It is a 2-post open frame 45U rack secured to studs with only 22U left for crawling. I am quite slim luckily

Fabric Frame

My fabric frames are not made of strips. They are just rectangular sheets with cutouts for 1" knauf insulation in some areas. It did waste more MDF but saved my contractor's time which is more expensive.

As for columns, my wife suggested flush with the wall so that the kids won't hit the edges, and it also saves some room width. The screen is also flush.

The baseboards are also fabric wrapped and were installed at the end so they wouldn't be damaged by the carpet installer accidentally.

That's all for my build!

I have to say, I've never been much for the star ceilings, but lately I've seen a few, like this one, that have convinced me that I'm going to add one to my next room.

Very nicely done! Great space!

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable. I've never seen Titanic OR XXXXXXXXX. Alexa is a stripper name.

Beautiful theatre!

Do you find the JVC NX5 bright enough for that 135” screen?
What is your seating distance from the screen to your seats?
Hard to see but I assume that the projector is mounted at the rear so around a 16’ throw.

What I absolutely love the best is your hidden rack room. Perfect use of that space in the corner!!!

Man, looked at the closed door pic first and was sure it must swing in! The tolerance for gap between door frame and inner fabric panels must be a hairs width. Nicely done!

Wiring at the back is a mess.

You are right. Throw is around 16'. Seating is about 12' from the screen.

I'm still learning the NX5 settings. But I feel low lamp for SDR is bright enough. High lamp for HDR is still a bit dim. I have to move tone level to 4 or 5.

hnkudr, I'm going to steal your idea for the equipment room and do the same for the back of my HT. One door will have access to the front and the other door will access the back wiring.

Question though, why the inside door swing? Just to hide the door hinge or just to keep the floor plan clear?
