    I'm going to convert my garage into a home theatre and will be putting up a stud wall a suspended ceiling and laminate flooring. Which should I do first and why?

    What type of suspended ceiling? If its a propriatary one with metal grid and tiles then that will be done after the wall and before the floor finish.

    If its just a plastered ceiling, then it will run in with the wall but plastered before the wall is.

    You would do the framing first, then the cabling, then the surface boarding/plastering, then the surface finishes
