- Room Details -
The space is roughly 12.4' x 21' (8ft ceiling) with no windows
Drywall is 1/2 single ply. I really wanted double drywall w/ green glue but it just wasn't in the budget
All walls are filled with standard R-13 kraft faced insulation
Lighting consists of 4 sconces, 12 4" eyeball lights, 3 vented isle lights & rope lighting above the soffit
Soffit dimensions are 12"x6.25" with a 3" gap to the ceiling
The riser dimension is 7.5' x 6' and leaves a 32" isle by the entryway and 26" isles on the back and far side
The first row of seats is 11.5' and the second is around 17'
Oh yeah, I'm winging it and really have no idea what I'm doing

Rear Seating
I originally wanted three connected recliners for the back row but everything I found was just too wide. Ultimately we decided on a black sofa instead. Couples like to sit back there or sometimes a row of kids.

We built a stage this year (if that's what you want to call it) that hides the speakers and allows access from the top or front.

It runs software called HSTouch from a company called HomeSeer. I love this option because it is extremely flexible and I can design pretty much anything we want. Touch each light in the picture to turn it on/off.
