» Project Completed – Finished Basement and Home Theatre

Monday, January 30th, 2012




Recently, construction was finished on this basement remodel for a family in Naperville. Our client approached us with the goal of creating a family entertainment area, as well as a dedicated workout space. Features of this project include a state of the art home theatre, and a  projection system with a massive 8′ screen, as well as a thumping ,bone crushing  sound system. In order to isolate the sound from the rest of the house, two layers of 5/8″ drywall were hung on the ceiling with special clips, along with sound attenuation insulation batts in the space between the ceiling and floor. The projection system was also hung on its own engineered beam that spans the width of the room and rests on the concrete foundation, this was done so that walking on the floor above would not vibrate the projection system. Other features include a dedicated gaming room with its own flat screen TV. A mirrored work out room and private bathroom and shower. Space for Foosball, ping pong and pool tables, as well as a kitchen with bar seating and  all the necessary appliances for preparing snacks and beverages that are required when having too much fun!
