Where to put media room in a new detached garage? Loft or first level?
I am in the exploratory stages of planning a new detached garage. It must be around 26x28 or so (can't be more than 32x28 as that is the size of primary residence).
Although it will be a "garage", I am leaning towards not parking a car in there and reclaiming the space for something else.
I need the following items:
- media room
- place where guests can sleep (could be office or media depending on size)
Question: Would you put the media room/hang out room in the LOFT or FIRST LEVEL ? Would it be easier to control environment and acoustics on one or the other? I am guessing of using a 120" projector screen.
Bonus question: Heating and Cooling: Is it best to just condition the office, bathroom, and media room or should one just condition the entire garage while we're at it?
