One more project ticked off the list – an entertainment unit for the media room.
The media room is a loft room upstairs. It was our bonus room. Our original plan did not have a room above the sunroom, but the structural engineer we worked with suggested we add it. And we are so glad we did. We spend a lot of time in this room during the winter months as heat rises, making it a warm and cozy place. It also has nice light from the south facing windows and a view of the lake through the west windows. Its big enough for a crowd to hang out in for a sing song or for several mats for a yoga session. And now a super nice entertainment unit with plenty of storage space.
Ken made the unit with leftover supplies from building the house – the carcasses are made from maple plywood leftover from the livingroom cabinets, the shelves are made with leftover MDF from various projects, the cabinet doors are made from hardwood flooring leftovers from the upstairs floors, and he finished the tops of the main section and the side cabinets with arborite leftover from the kitchen countertops. And we found the cute little door pulls at a second hand building material store.
