Started work on my home theater this weekend. This is a loft area, about 22'X21' with a peaked ceiling about 12' high. Have posted pictures in my gallery, trying to keep a set of pictures as I go through the construction process. Had to build a half wall to enclose one side of the room, then a couple of smaller walls to complete the enclosure and add a door.
Will be putting on a second coat of plaster today and installing the door hardware. Screen will be hung on the new wall (actually only had to build the top half
). Color scheme is still in work, ceilings will be a dark gray and probably going to go with a charcoal covering on the screen wall, with some dark grays on the side walls. Planning on 7 Coaster type seats, a row of 3 in front about 11' from the screen and a second row of 4 about 15' back. Will be building shelves in the back of the room for equipment and storage. Heavy drapes next to the screen and to cover the two windows.
Purchased the equipment from a local installer here in Leesburg, VA., and they'll do the installation in early March. I'll be using:
Sim2 Domino 30H Projector
Draper Clarion Screen (106" diag)
Integra DTR 6.5 Receiver
Integra DVD Player
KEF Speakers (Q7 front/Q10C center/Q5 Rear/Q1 Rear S./PSW 4000 Sub
Assorted other equipment like racks, power conditioners/etc.
Will also have HD Satellite as well-- would love to watch a hockey game here if they ever play again!
Will try to keep the images in the gallery up to date, have learned a lot from reading these forums. Thanks to all who post for the experiences.
