When it's time to watch a movie, the projector drops out of the ceiling, shades drop out of custom-built window jams and the screen flows down from a reclaimed beam in the ceiling.

Simple items were incorporated into the ceiling such as a hat channel, rubber, sheet rock and insulation to help control noise.

This room has two small, integrated racks in the front with ventilation provided by the mechanical contractor.

The control system, in addition to other items, allows the house sources to be shared in the media room along with a local Blu Ray player.
