Re: My retirement Home Theater

If your talking return for you hvac. I don't why it would hurt, we have returns in all the upstairs rooms and they are probably over 50' long. I would just try to keep it as strait as possible.

The idea of a long return line is to try and absorb any noise from exiting the room to the other areas of the home. I was told to do it in a "S" shape so the sound waves will hit the sides of it and cancel. I was just not sure if it will be enough to cancel all the sound from exiting.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

OK then disregard my input, I thought you were asking from a hvac performance stand point. This is good to know, as this may be what I need to do to get the sounds that travel through out the air ducts to quite down a bit.

No problem... I should have explained it better.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Today we got one of our solid core wood doors hung... It was a 36" wide 2" thick door. We made our own framework for the door out of 2x6s, and made the door seals for the top, and sides out of 2x4s. The bottom seal will be purchased. We still have to get the foam for sealing the door but at least we have a nice wide surface to use as a door stop in the frame and to seal against.

Now I am looking to see where I can get the nice long bar style handles they have on the Theater doors, and also a door closer. They short hallway between the 2 doors is inclined just like the Theaters do too. I hope to have some more pics up this Sunday.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

I seem to recall another build thread where the person had to find longer door handles...if I can remember where I saw it, I will post up a link.

Thanks, I am going for a commercial style pull handle for one side, and on the other side you will just push the door open. Both doors will have hydraulic door closers on them.

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Question... When you walk into the HT there is a short hallway, the right side wall is attached to the inner room wall but not attached to the outer wall due to the double wall construction. Normally if there was a communicating door right next to the other the space could be caulked as it would only be like 1/4" gap but in our situation there is a couple of inches. How do we seal that area off? Do we get some thick rubber and attached it to each wall?

Re: My retirement Home Theater

Is it something that will be seen, or covered up with trim. If covered up with trim, I would think great stuff for doors and windows. If not you need a backing like foam rope to shove in there before caulking.

It will be visible as it is the joint for the hallway wall connecting to the outer door wall. So, when we put the OSB up... We should try and close the gap to as little as possible and then caulk it?
