Too much, but never enough!
Building a new Media Room. This exercise may be harmful to my wallet!!
Room itself: $121,000 (Based on $430 sq. Ft. Baseline build price. OK, not really a fair comparison as this is King County, Puget Sound, water front new construction cost. Dorothy, this ain't Kansas!
Screen 133inch diagonal $3,000
Projector 4K $4000 (Not yet purchased approximate)
Subs SVS Sealed Ultra 13.5's $3000
Transducers and Amp $2,500
All Speakers: $14,000 (Admittedly some are from last Media Room)
Lighting Control $3,500
Marantz Pre, Amplifiers, Blu Ray, Tivo's $10,000
Sound Deadening $1,500
Furniture and Barstools $6,000
Shades and Shade Control $2,500
Art on wall $1,500
I-Pad + Programming and part of Lutron/Elan $2,500
Media Access Room racks, power UPS, Switch, Misc. $10,000
Paint: Custom $1500
$185,500 but admittedly most of this is the house itself factored in to this pace. Take away that and the number is more like $64,500 and even this includes a bunch of whole home smart cost.
Yikes! I should not have done this exercise!!!!
