ABOUT THE PROJECT
You don’t need to build a new house to gain a home theater. The owners of this New Jersey home tapped into unused space in the basement, and now they’re enjoying the big screen/big sound experience of the cinema without having to leave the comforts of home.
You do, however, need professional help to carry out a project like this the right way. The homeowner hired Electronic Design Group to do a survey of the space and to offer a floor plan for a theater that could comfortably sit five. EDG drew up plans that included blocking out windows, re-routing the ductwork for heating and air conditioning and running wire for lighting and electrical needs. They handed off the construction work to a contractor and architect and hunkered down with blueprints for the audio/video gear.
