Re: My retirement Home Theater

I looked at Sonnies hallway, and it is like I was planning... I am not sure if I can also put a double door into the theater though. If I can I definitely will though.

I wouldn't worry about splaying the walls. By the time you address the other items in the garage, you'd be making the front of the theater very very narrow.

I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Bryan - would a layer of OSB and then 3 layers of drywall be overkill? I was thinking it might not be worth the cost, but I was not completely sure. I have heard and seen doing 2 layers, but never 3...

Re: My retirement Home Theater

So 4 layers overall? Well, that would certainly be a ton of mass but not sure the ceiling would tolerate that kind of weight - not to mention making outlets, doors, etc. fun...

There will only be one door leading into the theater, so I was thinking of one door per 2x4 wall (double 2x4 wall). Would 3 layers of sheet rock plus OSB be too much for the walls? What should I do about the ceiling?

Re: My retirement Home Theater

OSB plus 2 layers with Green Glue woud be about the max I would do on any single wall. Think you're firmly in diminishing returns territory. Ceiling with appropriate clips and channel can support 3 layers of drywall.

Should I do that on both sides of the hall way wall that we are making as a double stud?

Re: My retirement Home Theater

If you want but not really sure you need ALL of that. Maybe just double on the outer portion.

Theater side... OSB, sheet rock, sheet rock with green glue
Hall side Sheet rock only or OSB and sheet rock?

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Up to you - 2 layers of something with GG between them. The only reason people use OSB is to always have a mounting point if they want to hang something.
