Basement Floor Plan

This shows the basement floor plan. The theater is in the lower left corner. You get to it via a "light baffle" hall. This hall allows the theater to have no door and for people to enter and exit without light coming into the room. Its a common trick on photography dark rooms.

Foundation Construction

Picture of the house foundation during construction at the corner where the theater is located. You can see that we had them sink part of the theater floor for tiered setting.

Framing

Framing going in for the basement. You can see the theater hall and the "media" room behind it. The media room is where the equipment is located including the home automation components.

Framing

Another framing picture. Again you can see the sunken floor.

Tiers

The theater has three setting tiers. The floor was sunken and makes up the lowest and highest tier. A platform creates the middle tier.

Framing

Picture from inside the theater with most of the framing done looking toward the wall where the screen will be.

Drywall

Same angle but with the drywall now up. This is where the builders stopped on the theater. I did all the remaining finishing work.

Drywall

Looking back from the screen wall toward the entry doorway.

Drywall

Similar view but from the other front corner. Here you can see the side door. This leads into the basement "mechanicals" area. It's basically an emergency exit so the hall is not the only exit route.

Theater Hall

The theater "light baffle" hallway from the doorway of the theater toward the entrance to the rest of the basement. Having this hall allows people to enter and exit the theater without opening a door and letting light into the room.

Theater Hall

From the "turn" in the hallway toward the entry from the basement. The hallway was fully finished by the builder, but as you will see in other pictures, gets a new paint job.
