He designed soundproofing into his plan. The green walls were new and would get isolation clips to isolate the walls, and the blue walls would use clip and channel construction.
"This illustrates the soundproofing plans for the walls. The green walls were new walls I was adding, and I would be using RSIC-3 sound isolation clips to isolate the walls. The blue walls already were framed so I used clip & channel construction for sound isolation here, as well as the ceiling. Check out the soundproofing company, or the dedicated theater section of avsforum.com if you want to get more details. They are really helpful," he says.
He built the framing using a framing nailer and a circular saw.
He says the wiring was straightforward but it took a lot of planning to figure out the number of switches and zones.
He hired a team to intall the drywall, and says the money was well-spent. They got the job done in two days, whereas it would have taken him weeks on his own.
He says this is 2 layers of 5/8" drywall with a layer of sound dampening Green Glue in between.
He finished the painting and moved on to building the riser for the seating.
This is three years after he made his initial plan. Some things are worth the wait and the effort. Wait until you see the finished room!
He made a custom shelf for the center speaker.
And here is the view of the screen from the seats. Wow, right?
