Getting ready for the MPJ Theater build 2.0 at our new house and strongly considering digging a section deeper instead of doing a floating riser when you walk in. According to how the house is set up with support beams and layouts, this is the best plan I could come up with. My question is this: Instead of building a step up at the entrance of the theater then a step down inside the theater leading to the 1st row, is it possible to dig a section of the basement deeper where I wouldn't need to build a riser and the first row would have a total height of about 9 1/2 while the rest would be 8'? I don't mind the labor, I understand the muscle that will go into this digging but the end prize would be well worth it. Is this even possible or do I need to go back to square 1?
