the yet unnamed Alaskan theater

Until I am able to come up with one that really stands out this build will have no name.

Please feel free to comment on any part of the build if you have any ideas or suggestions, this is my first build and I would appreciate any input. this thread has been a long time coming but between my work and being a new homeowner and all that comes with that i have been hard pressed to find time.

Like many on here I have been using this forum for quite some time to answer my many questions regarding what it takes to build a home theater. I would like to thank the many people on this forum from whom i have stolen/borrowed countless ideas to use in my own build. What I did not expect is that the deeper I dove in the more questions I ultimately had. However this forum has not disappointed, I have been able to find answers to questions I didn't even know I had.

I would like to extend a big thank you to a couple members who have given so much to not only my build but the entire avs community.

@MississippiMan -countless hours helping with ideas on the phone and over email not to mention the endless topics in both the diy screens forum and the dedicated HT build forum as well I cannot thank you enough

@BIGmouthinDC -I may not have had much direct interaction with you but I can't even put a guess on how many of your posts I have carefully read to answer questions I have had during my build. Numerous google and forum searches have brought up your posts.

@ccssid123 offered me some advice when i was looking at going the DIY route for my speakers and I am very glad I did

@James92TSi the way you hid your attic entry is awesome and I plan to use a similar method

@Erich H - thanks for the speaker kits these things sound amazing and the satisfaction from knowing i built my own is unexplainable.

@trhought the VBSS looks amazing and I have all the parts to make my own except the amp. I am super excited for this part of the build to come.

So many others have helped along the way as well

My equipment so far is as follows:
Projector- JVC x790r
Blu-ray- Oppo 203
Receiver- Denon x6400h
LCR- DIYSG HTM-12
4 Surrounds- DIYSG VOLT 6s
4 Atmos- RSL C34E
2x 10" monoprice monolith subs
Nvidia Shield
Roku
Xbox One X
Daikin mini split for heat and A/C
Ac infinity inline fan to bring in fresh air with inline Phresh filter for smells
Brilliant 4 gang light switch to control light zones
seatcraft pantheon seats for second row and sofa with chaise for second row


Last September I set out to find a home here in Alaska that would suit my needs (make the girlfriend happy) and desires (room to build a dedicated HT). what we found was a well laid out single story home with what started as a 2 car garage and a carport. Half of the garage was converted into what I believe was a laundry/workout room with french door replacing the garage door, making a good start to the HT. The rest of the house is unimportant to me but the girlfriend loves it so it is a win win. I get the garage, carport and the room that will be the HT and she gets the 3 bedrooms and living room, perfect.

The room being used, pictured below, is 23’6” long and 12’ wide with about a 9 foot ceiling. I say about because I found out later on the room floor and ceiling are both very un level, almost 2 inches off from side to side in the room.

When I started this project I was unsure where to start. Initially I planned to keep the door to the front of the house and use it as an access behind what would later be a screen wall however once i was a little more settled in I realized that the door would at the very least need to be replaced as it was quite old and honestly it was poorly installed. Another part of the room I noticed as I looked closer was that the window had cracks in the drywall up both sides to the ceiling. The drywall on the ceiling had been done so poorly and quickly to move along the sale of the house that I didn't realize that you could clearly see the tape and they had barely sprayed what must have been the last little bit of a can of orange peel before painting to cover it. I decided that rather than try to fix what was there it would be easier to start fresh and strip it down to studs. I am very glad I did because i found that the wall between the house and theater room had ZERO insulation and was only half inch drywall. The wall separating the room from the garage had some insulation but huge sections were missing. I even found a partial bay on an exterior wall that had almost no insulation and the insulation i did find was only R-9.




When i took down the paneling around the exterior door I found this beautiful sheetrock job which made me even more sure i needed to start at studs. This is also when I decided that I would remove the door and window all together to help seal the room




This one is from before I put on the stain to match the outside

The next step was having my dad whom is an electrician come over and completely rewire the room to have its own dedicated circuits. Up until this point the entire garage and HT room had been on ONE circuit, both the lights and all the plugins. After that I started in on the insulation. I removed all of the R-9 and I used rockwool for the wall facing the rest of the house and pink R-15 for the exterior walls then a combination of both for the wall facing the garage (i had some left over rockwool so i used it rather than toss it).

If I could go back, this is the first place I would. I absolutely HATE sheetrock and given the chance I would go back and have a professional do this part. That being said when it was all said and done I actually did a fair job considering it was the first time really doing more than a patch here and there. Now since the neighbors on either side of us aren't really that close to the room and only 1 wall is shared with the main house we opted not to do hat channel, clips and double drywall with GG. the girlfriend has stated the the rockwool alone made a huge difference and said that even when I am using power tools and listening to loud music she can barely hear a thing in the bedrooms. I opted to use 12 footers to keep seams to a minimum but not sure I would do it again.

Another lesson I learned is that even if you think you will need 2 layers of kilz primer ...wait for the first layer to dry or you will get cracks.



Since the room will be sealed and 100% light controlled i opted not to go with absolute black and went dark grey instead


Arguably the best purchase I made last year for black friday was the 25$ laser level i got from home depot it made running lines for the soffit and chair rail a breeze. You can see in the pic below how uneven the ceiling is. It will be hidden by the soffit which will hang perfectly level and also cover the weird brace in the corner of the ceiling.

Since I hated doing the sheetrock so much, I decided that was a no go for the soffit. I opted for fabric covered quarter inch panels I used a thick and inexpensive felt which I am still unsure if it was a good choice. Since it is only used on the underside i think it will be fine and wont pick up any dust. We will see. I am hopeful the the side faces of the soffit can be filled with rockwool and covered with a fabricmate wall style cover made of spandex to work somewhat as a bass trap. This part i am unsure on but I think it will look good and I am hopeful it will be effective. I will be leaving it uncovered until the end of the project so i can run wires and make any needed adjustments. I decided to go with some lights that were recommended on another post by @BIGmouthinDC . I am using a brilliant controls 4 gang light switch to control all 4 zones.

Over and over in build after build the obstacle i see drawing the most concern is the HVAC situation. How will you keep comfortable during a 10 hour binge watching Game of Thrones. Honestly had it not been for the information gathered on this forum I would have never thought it necessary. My approach is a bit odd but i believe it will be effective and it sort of multi tasks. If i am crazy it could easily be reconfigured many other ways to be more effective. During the deconstruction of the room i tore out the only heat source which was an electric baseboard heater and after talking to some friends and doing some research I decided to go with a mini split unit mounted at the back of the room to bow conditioned air forward over the seats. This however only solved one issue, I still needed to address the fresh air factor to get more oxygen into the room. Stepping out of the HT into the main house you are facing directly to a small closet which i will be using for my electronics to power the room which i have outfitted with 2 dedicated 20A circuits (one is shared with the plugins inside the HT mostly for vacuuming). I expect this closet to heat up quite a bit as denon is known to run hot and it will house a bunch of other equipment. So my HVAC setup is a follows and please let me know if this is a bad idea. Using an 8” acinfinity inline fan i will pull hot air out of the closet blowing it through a Phresh air inline charcoal filter to pull out smells (used for marijuana industry) into the HT at the rear of the room to be conditioned by the mini split. Air will then travel forward to the return which will also have a 6” in line fan to dump the spent air into the closet in my master bedroom. I believe that because the way that the house is built this will serve several purposes. 1 cooling electronics 2 fresh air into HT 3 circulate all air through the house. I mounted the fans in the attic above the HT with bungee cords to avoid vibrations.

Welcome to the build thread... glad to see more members in Alaska getting involved..

Just fiy.. in case you haven't realized.. it's tough to find materials up there.. so stay patient.. if you run into difficulties, I'd reach out to @brazensol , as he just completed his build not to long ago, and might be able to point you to a source on some things. Other than the big box stores....



Interested to see what your overall plan is...

Good to see more Alaskan builds! I've been about 90% done for 2 years now. I shouldn't have gotten it operational until I had more completed!

little bit of an update. looks like i will only have about 3 weeks of work time left before the end of the year with work and travel but i am very hopeful to be able to hone in on that 98% mark before the end of the year.

the girlfriends parents came to visit a couple months back and while they were here her dad helped my put in a wet bar with granite top using some cabinets i got for 40 bucks on craigslist that had never been installed. i will paint them later. you can see my brilliant light switch i use for the 4 zones around the room which i love. i was quite impresses with his granite skills. he actually made all the cuts including the cutout for the sink with a hand held battery powered angle grinder. originally i was not planning to have a sink but since i had all the connections available from when thew washer and dryer sat here, he talked me into it.



here you can see my mini split for temp control in the room. i will be running the condensate inside the wall and then have it pop back out inside the cabinet then tie in to the sink drain with a dishwasher hookup. i just wish i had run it before installing the cabinets and counter........

i temporarily put up the screen and roughly placed the speakers, subs and seats so that the girlfriend could better visualize the light at the end of the tunnel. you can see the early stages of wall coverings





if you look close you can see our new little helper

now that i have everything back out of the way i can get some more work done. the pilars on either side of the room house suround speakers and power/ Ethernet to the riser so i can have my desk directly behind it. next i plan to fill the voids in the soffit with insulation to work as a bass trap then cover the face with fabric. cant decide between using the same carpet as shown on the floor (have just enough left from install) or use the black acoustic carpet we used on the lower half of the walls to cover the front stage. leaning towards the same as the floor since the speakers will be covered by a AT wall so it is just all black.

Progress is much harder with a puppy.........but i am doing what i can

thanks for looking!
