I am 10 months in to the major renovation on my house, which includes a new addition and alfresco.
The addition includes an extension to join onto my existing old outbuilding. This was more to prove a point to people who said I should just knock it down.
In hind sight they were probably right
The room measures 4.4m by 5.6m on the inside, which I have decided to turn the room into a dedicated home theatre.
The idea was gut the whole room and start from scratch.
So far I have removed the existing timber floor and poured a new slab, installed a new colourbond roof, added new purlins and rafters, installed a new commercial grade 1.3m by 0.9m aluminium window and red cedar French double doors. I have built an internal steel frame for the 13mm commercial grade gyprock,
I am not a tech head, but my objective is to build a home theatre to impress, both in screen size, picture quality and sound, which looks good and on a budget.
This is where I want people’s ideas and opinions.
So far I am planning:
A 120” fixed 16:9 screen recessed into the wall
BenQ W1070 Projector
I have just purchased a set of Klipsch 5.1 Quintets and 350W subwoofer and a Onkyo Amp
The ceilings are 2.7m in height and have built a bulkhead around the outside, I plan on inseting LED’s strip lights to add ambient light to the ceiling and 2 or 3 coloured LED down lights to the edges of the bulkhead.
Dark curtains will stretch the whole length of the sides and I will have dark style carpet to the floors.
Instead of stadium seating I am looking at a L shaped couch with recliners, which can fit 3 to 4 people access.
Any suggestions and feedback are welcome.
I am doing a lot of research at the moment, and want to make sure I get it right.
I have just finished the flushing and I start painting tonight and the capet goes in next friday
This is the progress from around a week ago
