Good sound, great living - my Home Theatre den and home - part I
My renovation journey
This is a write up of my renovation, which should end by the third week of November if all goes all.
I recently took back my tiny "mickey mouse" place, which has two bedrooms and a study.
It's a place of modest proportions, with only 925sq feet, two bedrooms, a small study and an oversized balcony.
So I decided since it was returned empty, and I am a Hi Fi aficionado, why not do it up, with an emphasis on my home theater?
So the job specs were:
Provide lighting for the living
Get a feature wall with cabinet storage for discs
A console solid enough for placing my amps and a centre speaker on top
Bookcases, assorted furniture for the living, dining and study area.
But the key "hi fi" related features are:
Rock wool filled feature wall
With special imported Swiss wood panel behind the speakers (more on this later)
Rock wool filled Cove lights
Treated ceiling with acoustic boards
So I did the initial search and posted my needs on a local hi fi forum, and I got a few very nice people, who were acoustic and renovation professionals, and they came round to offer some tips and even recommended a few contractors.
