The house was burnt down in 1985 and we bought the property from the county for about $20,000. We have been basically building a new house there since 2003 and are almost done. 3600sqft 2 story house in southwest Miami-Dade.
The room is about 22'x15', all concrete construction. I plan on doing a riser for a second row of seating.
We are basically done with the soffit frame which is 4'x1.5'.
Looking from front to back:

A side shot so you can see most of the space there.
That window WILL be drywalled over!
In an effort to keep things organized here are the most up-to-date plans for the theater. Hell, we started this project thinking we would just use our original 70" SDTV and a HTIB... probably Bose *shriek*. Needless to say I have been enlightened by the guys here at AVS and HTGuide... The whole South Florida DIY crew, HTGuide DIY peeps, the DIY old-timers, and the IB Cult!
