Q: How difficult is it to move a wall to enlarge a room?
A: That depends. If the wall is non-structural (meaning it is not vital to the home's stability), moving it slightly is usually an easy undertaking. However, if moving the wall affects the size or location of a door, window opening or other feature in that room or an adjacent space, the alteration is more difficult, time-consuming, and costly. The movement of a structural wall (one that is vital to the home's stability) is often prohibitively difficult.
|The Media Room|
The concept of a "media room," as a space specifically devoted to home theater and audio systems, is more popular than ever. New home designers and builders, responding to the demand of their buyers, have incorporated media rooms into the floor plans of many new homes, all along the price spectrum. Such rooms are designed for comfortable television and movie viewing and are acoustically separated from the rest of the house.
Now, professional homebuilders and their design teams are responding to the evolution of media technology with new "media room" features. These new, sophisticated spaces can incorporate multiple, flat-panel plasma or LCD displays for watching broadcast television, surfing the Internet, and playing video games. Also included -- by client demand -- are surround-sound audio, multi-port outlets and docks.
These enable a wide range of consumer electronics, multipurpose furnishings and built-ins that suit both card and electronic game players.
Yes, the media room has become the game room, again driven by homebuyer demand and a host of new (mostly electronic) toys. Builders are educating their buyers about the lifestyle advantages of including such a project and the value it adds to their property.
Consider some of the special features that a true Game Room encompasses, all of which are easily accommodated in a new construction project:
Acoustics. Sound transmission in or out of a game room can be disruptive. Builders incorporate products that block or deaden sound through the walls, floors, and ceilings. Special membranes and laminated drywall and plywood panels meet the need without adding a lot of extra cost, rendering the Game Room almost a separate acoustical zone within the house.
Our passion is to work with good people, to help bring forth their dreams in a pleasant home building experience, and enjoy the extraordinary life that we have around here. All in a place they can proudly call home. It's that simple.
