I finally started the journey into home theater building. I picked up my wood and my insulation this weekend and even got a chance to get a exterior grade french door for 75 bucks. I took pictures of what im starting with and should have them up pretty soon. I picked up the 80 series roxul insulation and am planning on stagger studding the whole room. I do have a question though does it really matter what kind of insulation to use on the floors. I wont have enough roxul to do walls ceiling and floor so i think im gona use cheap insulation on the floors. Also anybody have a link to building light boxes.. I might try to do them in between construction weekends...Im trying to be done by end of spring and total expense of $5000 since right now im at less than 500 and buying drywall should be the main heavy expense now...and probably wiring...Thats all pictures to come soon....

I'm not positive on the insulation, but I don't see why regular insulation would not work for the floor. It's what I stuffed my riser with. I used it in my walls as well. I did the staggered studs and used R-13 on each side for a total of R-26. I'm sure some of our pros will chime in.

Looking forward to seeing some pics. :T
