I’m going try to chronicle as much as possible of the conversion of my built under garage into a compact dedicated room with a family twist. (edit: I've since decided I'm going to go dedicated probably for the first time in my life and to heck with it lol). A brief bit of history; I was looking to do some modest upgrades to my lounge cinema: https://www.avforums.com/threads/bestÅ-both-worlds-family-lounge-meets-home-cinema.2128866/ When I came across this competition for a media room on the front page of AVforums, being run by @MultiroomMedia : https://www.avforums.com/threads/win-a-£20-000-media-room-from-multiroom-media.2125084/ Entered the competition, and a few days later had a rather surreal phone call from Ben telling me that I’d won! Once I managed to calm down a bit (took a couple of days, not quite sure I’m totally there yet) I started thinking about all the glorious kit I could upgrade my planned upgrade with… and actually felt pretty flat about it as it just seemed a bit “more of the same” without really giving me anything much more than I had. I’d previously considered my garage, but concluded it was a bit too small to justify spending the money, partly due to keeping space for the boiler, partly due to what I wanted to achieve and the funds available. Now, with an influx of prize fund for kit and expertise, I could divert my own funds to moving the boiler out, gaining valuable space and making a nice little room feasible it the space I had. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! Things are still pretty fluid; I’ve only just started talking to builders and figuring out all the requirements, as I’d really only given the garage the most minimal of consideration in the past. We're all as a family really looking forward to the finished result already. I'll reserve the next couple of posts for info about the finished build, useful links, etc. Hope you enjoy reading the thread.
