Looks good, CV. What are the dimensions of the HT area? Are you going to ceiling mount the QS8 near the kitchen?

Yeah, they're going to be ceiling-mounted, and yeah, I suppose I should have some sort of table to dine at behind the theater seating somewhere, huh?

I didn't have the measurements handy, so I had to remeasure the area for the home theater. Just counting floorspace, it's about 14' wide by 28' long (from ledge to stairwell). Yeah, not good numbers if you're considering a perfectly rectangular room, but does the space above the ledge and opening into the kitchenette make the acoustics complex enough that it might not be a problem?

Wow, what a great program. Beam supports are a big hassle in basements. Looks like your layout would work but are you planning to isolate the kitchenette from the HT area with a curtain or something else to define the area better?


No, I hadn't considered anything for really sectioning that area off. My major concern was the stairwell.

I would say it's less of a problem with the space opening into the kitchen. Of course, what other anomalies may crop up is another issue!

One of my great regrets in life (so far) is not making myself rich enough to afford a brand new, custom-designed home.

Wow, almost exactly a year since I last posted in this thread. The metal skeleton for the stairwell was just put in today, so I thought I'd share a couple of pictures.

Or in.

Add steps but make them raise up to form a slide at the touch of a button.
