Home theaters are no longer only an extravagance for the rich and famous. Thanks to more affordable technology, many families are enjoying a true movie theater experience without leaving home. If you're thinking about building a home theater visit a local site or get a good referral to find a design build professional.
The ideal space for a home theater is 20 feet long by 13 feet wide and relatively isolated from the rest of the house. It has to be in a place that does not interrupt the business of the home, you don't want the sound disturbing everyone. Good options include; Building a theater wing off the family room, converting a living room, closing in the open second-story space above a formal living room, converting a spare bedroom that's at least 12 by 12 feet.
Building the shell of a home theater is similar to building any other addition to your home with one exception. You'll want to pay special attention to insulation. A rating of R30 is standard for the floor, ceiling, and exterior wall insulation, but don't neglect the interior walls. Loosely packed R11 can help keep the sound of movie explosions from rocking the rest of your home. It won't block the noise completely, though.
