No worries they and others will have it again, anticipating more so towards the tax deadline which actually works out for post xmas/ny start...

no bathrooms in the plan?

No bathrooms. I need the exercise going up the stairs.

Are those the speakers in a faded blue on the walls?

Are you going for a THX or Dolby 7.x setup?

In each setup, the surrounds should be on either side of the seating area and the rears should be behind the seating area.

May want to consider in-ceiling speakers for the rears/surrounds.

Will the in ceiling speakers fit between the joist?

When your framing the ducts try using 2 x 2's with osb board for added support.

So are you going with the 8' front projection?

Dolby 7.1 set up, speaker placement to be confirmed when seating is figured out 100%, the blue is recessed lighting.

I'm not a fan of in wall speakers, I have a Klipsch speaker system already anyway.

I'm going to frame everything using 2 x 4's. No projection, 50" plasma (maybe a new 63" if I can sneak it in).

Default Duct

Steel studs do the best job around ducts (easier too).

I'm not a fan of steel studs. I like doing it old school! But they are much lighter to use when working on a ceiling.

I got the zoning certificate in one day. Put the building permit in this morning, should be good to go in ten days.

FYI, the permit application process has been very simple and the city has been very helpful.
