Now THAT would be appealing. Especially the 3 diff voltages. Not $1000 appealing but . . .

I have been working on a few projects around the house since the last updates, but I don't have as much time as I once did. Right now we are tearing out the fireplace, installing a linear fireplace, recessing the TV, and lowering it. This is the current.

Vent cut outs so that if there is ever a gas leak, it won't turn the kitchen into a giant NG explosion.
Britton,

For your TV mounted to your outdoor Kitchen, Did you run any data back to the rack? If you did, how did you debarc the House? I am thinking it will have to be done through Conduit run down the exterior walls, but for aesthetics I would like to avoid that if there is another way. Im also assuming you ran wire channels in your patio slab during your home construction to reach the Outdoor Kitchen and Heater/Ornamental Posts next to the couch?

Hope All is well.

You got it right... I cut a single gang mud ring into the soffit, then used a stainless steel blank with a hole cut into it to accept a male threaded conduit fitting for seal-tight flexible waterproof electrical conduit. The flex conduit is strapped to the side of the house and connects to plastic PVC conduit that runs below the grill under the slab. I would go take some pictures because it was actually a really interesting install, but the snow....

Our mini-remodel is almost done. Walls have been smoothed (no more texture), new fireplace, TV cavity trimmed out, TV recessed and lower now. Martin Logans moved from upstairs, family room speakers now in game room. Built ins added. Loving the gray color.

Yes, have a bunch of updates on all kinds of projects around the house. Upgraded the TV to a Sony 4k and installed a chief pdrub mount. I will take better pictures during the day.

Finally replaced the two Google tvs we had with tvs that have discrete codes. Google tvs were creating havoc in the control system.

So a few more updates:

- We were having trouble with our wifi so we installed a LUXUL system. So far it is better, but doesnt completely remedy one dead spot in the house. We may need to add one more access point. The over all network speed has improved with the luxul router. You can also see the vent I used for one of the exhaust fans for the rack.

- Since we got the new 70" Sony for the family room, we moved the 65" Panasonic VT to the game room. What's funny is that we are using this room for the first time ever since we moved the TV.

- Order (2) outlaw audio amps for more power in a few key zones. They should be here soon, but I am annoyed with their shipping policy (signature requirements) and inability to send to my work since the address is not associated with my credit card. Who has time to wait at home for amps to show up?

- Rack is still needing a little clean up. You can see one of the exhaust fans. I have two more I need to install.

- Last but not least, we are expecting so I have been working on turning an empty bedroom into a spoiled child's nursery. We smooth walled the room, milled our own trim, installed a mural etc. I feel like I am in a race against time to get my AV projects 100% done for the first time ever.

As far as AV goes to 100% finish, need to do the following:

1. Install 2 more amps and tie up loose ends in rack. 2 days
2. Install and program more light switches. 1 day
3. Program loose ends. 2 days
4. Install baluns for outdoor TV 1 day
5. Smooth Wall Theater, Pull additional theater electrical for accent lights, fabricate trim and cabinet to hide speakers below screen, fabricate install back-lit sound treatments, smooth wall room, install fridge/ microwave, paint. - 1-2 weeks. I included a picture from Vicoustic's website showing the sound treatment type.
