Finally got the Snug Cinema finished, so I thought I would get some pics up.

First of all, a few before's:

Daytime set up: It wasn't that bright a day when I took these, hence the lights needing to be on.

Hi danmc, There wasn't any insulation in the roof, which came as no surprise to me as that room was always difficult to keep warm in the winter. Incidentally, the extension was built by the previous owner. I added plenty of insulation though when I went in to run cables.

Looks great..Did you use any form of soundproofing/sound dampening?

Actually no, I didn't. I did a sound test outside with the volume wacked up to the highest level we would be comfortable listening to. Although I could hear a bit of bass rumble, it was no worse than what you hear in the corridor outside multi-screens.
Because the room is an extension on the side of the house, there is an additional breeze block wall as well as the normal house exterior wall which gives me quite a thick barrier. There is some sound leakage from the doorway into the hall, but we can live with that as we are usually in there together.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Before we put the Snug Cinema together, I had my surround system in the living room which has a party wall to next door, so I was always concious of sound levels. We get on extremely well with our neighbours and I would text them when we were going to watch a film and ask them to let us know if they could hear it. They said they could hear the odd rumble from an explosion or something, but they never complained. I would have a sound level of around -18, but now I can get it up to -8 without worrying about it. On average though, I have it at around -12 or -13.
