Sometimes disaster strikes.
And yet, sometimes, disaster represents opportunity as much as calamity. In the case of today’s sweet home theater setup, that’s exactly what happened.
When a home in Florida burned down–and completely, too, by the sounds of it–the homeowner was left with a fat insurance settlement check (see, this is why you pay your homeowner’s insurance bill) and a need for a new house. So rather than simply rebuild the one he had, he opted to build a slightly new one, with a home theater inside. But being as the check was finite, he had to be careful, and thus assigned contractors a very strict budget.
The results are astonishing. Lighting controls and a retractable curtain are just part of the equation here–there’s also a JVC projector with a hundred and ten inch Draper screen, a Marantz receiver, Monitor Audio speakers and more.
Taking something as horrible as a house fire and turning it into this is a fantastic way to make a sweet home theater setup, both for what it is and for what it represents.
